Chatham House: NNPP Speaks Following Kwankwaso's Comments On Peter Obi

The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has clarified the comments made by its presidential candidate Rabiu Kwankwaso regarding his Labour Party counterpart Peter Obi at Chatham House in London, UK.

Kwankwaso during the interactive session said he had considered working with Obi, and fearing that his statement has been taken out of context, NNPP has deemed it fit to react.

While making an appearance on Arise Television’s 'The Morning Show' on Thursday, the National Secretary of NNPP, Folashade Aliu, clarified that what Kwankwaso meant was that he is ready to talk with a more qualified candidate.

“I want to debunk the report that distinguished Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso said he would step down. He never said that.

“What he said yesterday at the Chartham House was that if you have a more qualified candidate you will speak. We’ll discuss.

“Then, in terms of the Labour Party candidate, we understand that a lot is going on social media and we are unshaven that some of these comments are cooked up, and for me, it’s blackmailing, and we don’t need to get to that point.

"What he tried to exhibit yesterday was maturity that it’s not a do-or-die situation.

“If you have somebody who’s better than me we can talk and get on from there.

"Talking about the Labour Party, initially before the INEC cut-off point we were approached and we spoke and lay down our strategies to have a conversation but their position was more of ‘is the turn of the Southeast and they were willing to look at what we put on the table so that we can have a good discussion.

"They weren’t flexible, open-minded and objective", she stated.
