Convener of Concerned Nigerians and rights activist, Deji Adeyanju has urged the Labour Party, LP, Presidential candidate, Peter Obi and his counterpart in the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, Rabiu Kwankwaso to pair up as a team to defeat the two prominent political parties, All Progressives Congress, APC, and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Adeyanju, a PDP stalwart, who has been an advocate of the Igbo Presidency in 2023, revealed that it is a Herculean task to defeat APC and PDP, hence, the two former governors should partner.
On his Twitter page on Thursday, Adeyanju described APC and PDP as twin monsters and urged Obi and Kwankwaso to work together, saying he preferred the former as the President.
Obi dumped PDP to join LP in the pursuit of his presidential ambition and Kwankwaso while commenting on the incident said he would have made the former Anambra governor his running mate, had he chosen to come to NNPP.
“Many people just suggested that. I believe that it could have been possible if not because he joined another party. Now, he is already a candidate as we have seen from the news now. We look forward to seeing what happens in the next few weeks,” Kwankwaso had said.
“I want the Kwankaso/Obi ticket to be considered. It doesn’t really matter who runs for president or vice but I will prefer Obi as president and Dan Musa as VP but they should both meet and strategize. To defeat the twin monster of APC/PDP is not easy,” Adeyanju said.
