I’m in talks with Kwankwaso, Obi to support me – Atiku

Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has revealed that he has been talking with Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigerian People Party (NNPP) to step down for him ahead of the forthcoming election.

Atiku made this known in a 15-minute interview with the BBC Hausa service on Tuesday.

Speaking with the interviewer in Hausa language, Atiku said that he is in talks with both Obi and Kwankwaso to support him in order to bolster his chances of winning at the February 25 poll.

“We are in talks, and the discussion might yield a positive result that will see one of them coming,” he said.

While fielding questions 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.
