Obi Not In Talks With Atiku, Won’t Step Down — Campaign Council
Written by City Radio on February 2, 2023
Obi was Atiku’s running mate in the 2019 presidential election under the banner of the PDP. The Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council has said that the flag bearer of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi is not holding any form of discussion with his counterpart in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
The Head of Media of the Campaign Council, Diran Onifade, who made this known in a statement on Wednesday, emphasised that Obi has no intention to step down for Atiku.
Atiku had reportedly said he is in talks with Obi and the torchbearer of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso ahead of this month’s presidential poll.
However, Obi’s campaign team said the claim is totally false and baseless, insisting that the former Anambra State governor is in the race for Aso Rock top job to win and not to step down.
Many analysts have described Obi as a third force against PDP’s Atiku and Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
