January 31, (THEWILL) – Presidential candidate of the People Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has said he is presently in talk with the presidential candidates of the New Nigerian People Party (NNPP), Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and his counterpart in the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, for possible support.
Answering questions when he featured in an interview with BBC Hausa service on Tuesday, the former Vice-President said Obi and Kwankwaso are not in any way a threat to his chances in the February 25 presidential election.
“I see no threat because we are not together with them (Kwankwaso and Obi). We are in talk with them, one of them may possibly come,” he said.
Speaking on the crisis with the G5 governors, Atiku said, “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.
“Elections now are not like in the past when a Governor will dictate who to vote for, elections today are in the hands of the voters.”
