Speaking in a new interview, Kwankwaso said it would have been possible if Obi had not joined another political party after resigning from the Peoples Democratic Party.
“Many people suggested that (for Obi to be running mate). I believe it could have been possible if not because he joined another party and now he is already a candidate as we have seen from the news just now.
“We look forward to seeing what happens in the next few days or weeks.”
Kwankwaso who wished Obi well, also disclosed that they’ve had the opportunity to talk about several national issues.

“Actually, we had the opportunity to talk to ourselves on many national issues until a few days to the time when he declared for the Labour Party of which now he is the presidential candidate.”
When asked if the party would consider picking his running mate from the South East, he said the NNPP is not yet settled on that. He said as far as the former APC and PDP chieftain is concerned, the NNPP needs an influential personality as the party’s vice-presidential candidate.
“We are not there yet. After the convention, the party will sit down and look around and see if we can have a very good, credible person with capacity; somebody who is acceptable; somebody who can bring as many people as possible to vote for our party as a vice president of the NNPP from the southern part of the country.”
