2023: Why NNPP’s Alliance Talk With Labour Party Failed

The Spokesman of the National Consultative Front (NCFront), Yunusa Tanko, has revealed why the alliance talk between the Presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso, and the Labour Party (LP) failed.

According to Tanko, the talks failed because the former governor of Kano State wanted Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of LP, to be his vice-presidential candidate.

Tanko, in an interview with Daily Sun, however, said LP and NNPP were ready to collaborate in other areas.

Speaking on the failed talk, Tanko said, “We had discussions with the NNPP, we agreed to work together in many areas. But what we don’t agree on is in the area of the presidential election. Kwankwaso wants obi to become his vice-presidential candidate and that is not acceptable to us. We have gone beyond an alliance with NNPP, we are unveiling our vice-presidential candidate.”

He further stated that LP has more formidable structures than the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party.

Tanko added, “In the words of Peter Obi, the 100, 000,000 Nigerians that are abjectly in poverty and hungry are his structure, and, let me make it clear the NCFront is a conglomeration of several groups across the country, that is a structure, the National Conscience Party (NCP) and other political parties who are part of the front and believe we can work together have structures, the TUC and NLC have offices in all parts of the country and they are at the grassroots. By the time you put these together, you will find out that LP has more structures than any political party in Nigeria, and it has the people backing it.”
