Abdulmumin Jibrin, a leader of the New Nigeria People’s Party, has asked voters in the southeast to support Rabiu Kwankwaso in the 2023 election. Peter Obi will serve as Kwankwaso’s running partner.
Jubril stated on Channels Television that an alliance with the NNPP is the safest course for the Igbo and that a firm agreement will be reached that power would return to the southeast following the term of Rabiu Kwankwaso.
According to Jubril, this is the first time that the southeast would have the certainty that it will be their turn for the presidency after a certain number of years since the passing of the former vice president of Nigeria, Alex Ekwueme.
The NNPP chieftain said the Labour party does not owe any state in the country adding that Peter Obi being Kwankwaso’s running mater is the safest route for the southeast.
He said: “This is the first time they will seat at the table with NNPP to discuss, and sign a concrete agreement that after Kwankwaso, it’s going to be the southeastern, part of the country. Since after Alex Ekwueme this would be the first time that the southeast would have that clarity that after a certain number of years that it will be their turn.”
“And I believe that’s the safest route for them to go but again they have the option to decide to go with their vote and waste it if they decided they want to demonstrate. The Yorubas have done that for decades, the fact is does Labour Party have some states? One of the safest routes is to go into alliance with NNPP. For now, Peter Obi should decide to be Kwankwaso’s running mate after that power can go back to the east.”
