Atiku claims being in talks with Obi, Kwankwaso, says one of them may join him
After allegedly meeting with the New Nigerian People Party candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso, and Peter Obi of the Labour Party, the PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, intimated that he would be willing to work with them in the upcoming election.
In a 15-minute interview with the BBC Hausa station on Tuesday, Atiku claimed talking with the two candidates.
Speaking to the interviewer in Hausa, Atiku claimed that neither Obi nor Kwankwaso posed a threat to his prospects of winning the election on February 25.
“Although, I see no threat in any of them but we are in talks, and the discussion might yield a positive result that will see one of them coming,” he said.
When asked about the ongoing PDP crisis, Atiku responded that every party has its own internal problems, and theirs is no exception. However, he said his party is working quickly to resolve all of their differences.
He said, “Each party has its internal crisis, we are still talking with them. Most are neither in PDP nor in other parties and definitely that will not make us lose the election because we are okay with the election preparations for now.
“Election now is not like in the past when a governor will dictate who to vote for, election today is in the hands of the voters.”
