Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has revealed that he is in talks with Peter Obi and Rabiu Kwankwaso to step down for him.
While Obi is the presidential candidate for Labor Party (LP), in the 2023 general election, Kwankwaso is his counterpart in New Nigerian People Party (NNPP).
Atiku hinted on the meeting in a 15-minute interview with BBC Hausa service on Tuesday, February 31.
Speaking in hausa language during the interview, Atiku said both Obi and Kwankwaso are not a threat to his chances of winning at the February 25 poll.
“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.”
Speaking on the lingering PDP crisis, Atiku said each party has its internal crisis and theirs will not be an exemption but they are looking to solve every difference in no distant time.
“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,” he added.
