Atiku Abubakar has revealed that he is in talks with the Labour Party’s flagbearer Peter Obi and presidential candidate of the New Nigerian People Party (NNPP) Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) standard bearer disclosed the development while speaking to the BBC Hausa Service.
The former vice-president said the meeting was to solicit the support of Obi and Kwankwanso to form a formidable force to defeat the All Progressives Congress candidate Asiwau Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the general elections.
Atiku however remained adamant that the LP and the NNPP are not a threat to him in becoming Nigeria’s next president.
He said: “I see no threat because we are not together with them (Kwankwaso and Obi). We are in talk with them, one of them may possibly come.”
Atiku also dismissed the threats of the G-5 governors within the PDP sabotaging his efforts.
Atiku added: “Elections now is not like in the past when a governor will dictate who to vote for, elections today is in the hands of the voters.”
