Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress
The Director General of the Labour Party (LP) Presidential Campaign Council, Doyin Okupe, says the party is still in talks with the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) Rabiu Kwankwaso and others for a possible alliance ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
There were reports that Kwankwaso and the presidential candidate of the Labour Party Peter Obi were in talks for a possible alliance but the talks collapse as they failed to reach a truce.
But Okupe on Friday, said despite that, the LP is still looking to form an alliance with Kwankwaso and other parties.
“As a party, at our own campaign level, we are talking to SDP; we are talking to even Kwankwaso and his team again. We are talking to PRP and ADC,” he said on a television programme.
“I believe and I trust that God will help us that between now and December, we would bring together that alignment politically in the country and the country would be better for it.”
