Nigerian activist, Deji Adeyanju has expressed his frustration over the failed alliance between Peter Obi of the Labour Party, LP, and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
Speaking via his verified Facebook account, Adeyanju stated that he could not understand the reason both presidential candidates could not put aside their differences and merge their parties.
He insisted that it was a very selfish act and it was beyond him to understand the reason for running two different campaigns.
He wrote: I’m just sincerely angry with Nigerian politicians. Very selfish people. I can’t understand why Obi & Kwankwaso can’t agree to work together. If they can’t beg Atiku to work with them, will understand but these 2 running futile individual campaigns is something I can’t ever understand. Completely irritated!
Doyin Okupe, who is the Director-General of Peter Obi Campaign Organisation, some days back revealed on Channels Television that the alliance between both parties had already been dead for several weeks.
He explained that the bone of contention was who would become the presidential candidate after the merger between both parties.
