A spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign council, Daniel Bwala has hinted at an impending alliance between the presidential candidate of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso his Peoples Democratic Party’s counterpart, Atiku Abubakar ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

According to Bwala, Kwankwaso has strong political influence in the north, particularly in Kano and Jigawa States but that may not be enough for him to win.

The PDP campaign spokesperson expressed confidence that the former Kano State Governor would form an alliance with Atiku before the February 25 election date.

Bwala made this known during an interview with The Punch where he was asked about the probability of Kwankwaso taking a large chunk of expected votes for Atiku from the north.

He, however, stressed that Kwankwaso’s presence on the ballot box would not stop Atiku’s expected victory, adding that he expects an alliance between the two politicians before election day.

However, if the alliance doesn’t happen, Bwala maintained that Atiku would still win the polls because he has the support spread across the nation.

He said,

We can’t deny the fact that Kwankwaso is popular in the North, particularly in Kano and Jigawa States, but we are confident that Kwankwaso will team up with us before the day of the election.

“I am very optimistic that he will form an alliance with us because Kwankwaso, like Obi, shares a common ideology with Atiku Abubakar.

“Both were offshoots of the PDP. But if he decides to run on that day (February 25) as a presidential candidate, I don’t think his position in the contest will be consequential in stopping Atiku from winning the election. This is because Atiku has overall support from the South-South, South-East and the North-East.

“He has already secured 80 per cent control of three geopolitical zones. He is taking control of the North-West which is the largest voting bloc.

“As a result, Kwankwaso gaining some votes in the North-West will not prevent Atiku from becoming president. But I am convinced that he will form an alliance with us before the day of the election.”
