Peter Obi: Reactions after Kwankwaso revealed his intentions

Reactions are ongoing on the social media after the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) presidential Candidate, Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso revealed that his party is in advanced talk with the Labour Party (LP) over a possible merger for the forthcoming presidential elections.

Speaking with BBC Hausa Service, the former Governor of Kano State said; “It is true we are in talks with Peter Obi and a committee is working to look into how to form a merger between us.

“Friends and family are being up and doing talking about the merger arrangement,” Mr Kwankwaso added.

Kwankwaso also said; “The merger is important because as you can see both the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) did not pick their running mates from the South-East.”

Mr Kwankwaso’s NNPP has a large following in the North of the country, particularly the North-West while Mr Obi recently defected from the PDP and joined the Labour Party. He has endeared himself to large youth following in the South of the country.

Meanwhile reactions are ongoing on social media especially, on Twiter following the revelations by Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso.

Below are some of the reactions from Nigerians:

“Peter Obi and Kwankwaso will be a major force. It is over!!!!!” – @novieverest

As the governor of a very volatile Kano state, every southern christian who was in Kano at that time would tell you that they felt more secured when Kwankwaso was around. Go and verify. A Peter Obi and a Kwankwaso merger would be such a big flex for me, my 2 fav politicians.” –@2TwentyTwo222

If Peter Obi and Kwankwaso happens, our Education will be alive!” – @UchePOkoye
“Kwankwaso is bigger than Peter Obi politically & he must do everything to convince him for the coalition that is almost done. Reason he was bold to mention it before Labour Party. Even Okupe could mention NNPP yesterday.” – @PoojaMedia

“Politically speaking joining forces is never a bad idea, especially when there’s a common value behind the merger. Kwankwaso and Obi will make a formidable team. I wish both men will work out their differences and come to a compromise.” – @davema36
This thing is very simple, a Peter Obi & Kwankwaso merger is 100% removal of APC from Aso Rock. Kwankwaso should be the hero & step down for PO as his VP for the sake of equity, then PO does his 8yrs & power rotates back North & we vote in Kwankwaso for another 8yrs. Win – Win.” – @ChigozieIAlex
“As a northerner, I prefer Peter Obi and Kwankwaso Combo to Tinubu and Ganduje. We don’t want to witness another era of insecurity and corruption, at least allow this country to be handled by task oriented people abeg.” – @Tapher_G
