2023: Why IPOB Activities Won’t Let Me Be Peter Obi’s VP – Kwankwaso

Rabiu Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano State, has stated that he will not be Peter Obi’s running mate in the upcoming presidential election due to the activities of Biafra agitators in the South-East.

Since he is currently unemployed, Kwankwaso admitted that he would have preferred to be Obi’s running mate in an ideal world, but he insisted that northern voters will never support a president from the South-East.

The New Nigerian Peoples Party, or NNPP, presidential candidate claimed that being Obi’s running mate would result in both of them losing the election since northern supporters would support a candidate from the region.
