A former member of the House of Representatives Abdulmumin Jibrin has called on Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of Labour Party to accept to be Rabiu Kwankwaso’s running mate.
Kwankwaso is the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
Jibrin, now a chieftain of NNPP said the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, should sit for a discussion with the NNPP and sign a “concrete agreement that after Kwankwaso, it is going to be the South-Eastern part of the country’s turn.”
He added: “Since after Alex Ekwueme, this will be the first time the South East will have that clarity that after certain numbers of years, after this one, it will be our turn.”
He continued: “I believe that is the safest route for them to go but again they have their option to decide to hold on to their vote, waste it if they want to just to demonstrate their strength.”
