2023: NNPP Speaks On Proposed Alliance With Labour Party




The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has denied media reports that it is mulling an alliance with the Labour Party (LP).

Naija News recalls that the Spokesman of the National Consultative Forum, Yinusa Tanko, had said there are plans to merge the LP and NNPP to defeat the two major political parties in 2023.

In an interview on Arise TV on Monday, Tanko said merging the two parties will be beneficial to their Presidential candidates, Peter Obi, and Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso respectively.

Tanko said that the two former Governors have exhibited character, resilience, and determination while working closely with the disadvantaged.

He, however, urged Nigerians to support Obi and Kwankwaso if the talk about merging the two political parties come through.

Reacting, the National Publicity Secretary of the NNPP, Agbo Major, said the party is not in any alliance talks with anybody.

In a chat with Daily Trust, Major said the NNPP will be fielding its presidential candidate and whoever wants to join the party can do so

We are fielding our presidential candidate and whoever wants to join us can do so,” he said.

Speaking further, Major said that the party had not chosen anybody for the Vice President slot, adding that the nominee will definitely be a Southen Christian.
