A yet to be identified kid was pictureed watching as the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Mr. Peter Obi, replied the former Governor of Kano State, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso on his insistence that the Labour Party flagbearer who approached him for a possible alliance should be his running mate on New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP).

Kwankwaso, who turned down the offer on a live television, insisted that the North will not vote for Peter Obi because he is an Igbo.

Asked how he would respond to the comment made by Rabiu Kwakwanso that the north will not vote for an Igbo man in 2023, Mr. Peter Obi said, “The comment by the elder brother Kwankwaso is the reason why we have 100 million Nigerians living in poverty, 18 million Nigerian children out of school and about 52% of Nigerians either unemployed or under employed, because rather than vote for competent leaders, we will rather vote for incompetence due to a primitive belief of religion and ethnicity.
