In Kwakwanso’s words
We are really talking to Peter Obi, or atleast saying that the committee is working to look into the matter. Also, friends and family are coming to talk about it.
Unfortunately, the NNPP has dismissed reports that the presidential candidate, Rabi’u Kwankwaso, has agreed to be Peter Obi’s running mate.
Major, who denied the viral claim, said it is false and rather embarrassing to the former Kano governor and misleading the party’s supporters.
The new Nigeria people’s party has reacted to viral claims that it’s presidential candidate recently signed a pact to be the running mate of peter obi.
Referring to the news as false and misleading, NNPP’s publicity secretary, Agbo major made it clear that they never at any point issued such as an announcement and therefore cautioned the media houses to check their reports before publishing them.
