Peter Obi denies talks with Atiku


The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi is not in talks with Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Head of Media, Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council, Diran Onifade has said.

In a statement on Wednesday in Abuja, Onifade said claims that Obi was in talks with Atiku with a view to stepping down for the PDP Presidential candidate was “totally false and baseless.”

Atiku was reported to have said he was in talks with Obi and the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso ahead of this month’s presidential election.

But according to the statement issued by Onifade, the LP candidate was not in any talks with Atiku or anyone else with a view to stepping down from a race in which Obi is the frontrunner

The statement reads: “We have been inundated with enquiries about the claim of an ongoing discussion between our Presidential ticket and the camp of PDP’s Presidential Candidate,Atiku Abubakar.

“Peter Obi is in the contest to win in consonance with the aspiration of the majority of Nigerians who desire a New Nigeria devoid of lies, corruption and selfish scheming.”
