APC Woos Kwankwaso, Writes Off Peter Obi

Obi and Kwankwaso

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has downplayed the popularity of the presidential aspirant of the Labour Party, Peter Obi ahead of next year’s general elections.

The ruling party also urged the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, to return to the APC because he stands no chance of becoming Nigeria’s president outside the party.

Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Yakubu Murtala Ajaka, who spoke while addressing journalists in Abuja on Sunday, asked Kwankwaso not to be deceived by Obi and his supporters he says exist only on social media.

According to Ajaka, Kwankwaso cannot become Nigeria’s president by just winning two states at the election.

He said, “That is why I said it’s not too late for him to return to the APC. That’s where he naturally belongs and has an assurance of becoming a president one day, and not his current sectional NNPP.

“Although some people might be deceiving him by calling him Mr. President already but just one or two states in the North-west cannot make him a president. Kwankwaso needs a national party like APC to achieve his presidential ambition. So, I plead to him to do the needful before it is too late.”
