See What Kwankwaso Said About Peter Obi’s Presidential Bid with Labour Party.
Presidential Candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Dr Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has said that the Labour Party (LP) stands no chance of winning the presidential election in 2023.
The former Kano State governor stated this while addressing journalists on Sunday, July 3rd, 2022 about the possible alliance with the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi.
According to Kwankwaso, most of the supporters throwing their weight behind Obi are from the southeast, which is just one geopolitical zone in the country.
He also stressed that for a candidate to win a presidential election, he would need the support and votes of persons from different regions.
He said; “In PDP, they (South East) are completely out; so also in the APC. The only opportunity now is the NNPP. We are aware that on the social media, the young men and women of the south East extraction are working towards getting the presidency, but the facts on the ground is that even if the entire zone or any zone in this country decides to vote for a particular person, that person, going by the provision of our constitution can not be president. I think the Constitution is deliberate to ensure that everybody in the country is involved.

“Today, many people in the South East believe that they are being marginalised and it will even be worst, if they are not involved in the 2023 project. Labor Party as it stands today can not certainly win an election because the support is mainly from a particular zone and the figures there can not earn anybody a presidential position.”
