There have been sparks of a possible alliance between the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in the 2023 presidential election, Peter Obi, and the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, in the lead up to 2027.

These speculations were fueled by a recent visit by the LP Presidential candidate, Obi, to his PDP counterpart, Atiku.

According to a statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Barrister Felix Morka, it is unclear, whether Obi would make a comeback to Atiku’s PDP or whether Atiku would dump his PDP and seek rehabilitation in Obi’s Labour Party or whether both men would abandon PDP and Labour, altogether, and sojourn into the political wilderness of Professor Pat Utomi’s mega party.

The statement notes that news of Peter Obi’s return to the PDP would be hardly surprising as his reputation as a political wayfarer is only dwarfed by Atiku’s track record as a veteran political wanderer.

It said, news of Atiku joining the Labour party will shock no one as he will be living up to his well established reputation as the country’s most itinerant politician.

The statement however claims that for now, Utomi’s mega party remains a figment with no offering of tangible accommodation for both men adding that Atiku and Obi are united by their mutual desperation to be President of Nigeria and ignoble disdain for President Bola Tinubu’s focused and extraordinary commitment to the transformation of the nation.

It said, their restless drift in search of convenient party platforms to execute their presidential run only belie the self-indulgent and opportunistic essence of their aspirations as men without the staying power to build or fix their own parties, but flee at the slightest flicker of internal crisis cannot possibly be trusted by Nigerians to tackle serious and complex national political and economic challenges that confront the nation.

The statement further opined that President Bola Tinubu embodies character, vision, tenacity and doggedness required to deliver a resurgent Nigeria of stable growth and development saying that the administration’s bold economic policy reforms and massive infrastructural uptake have already shattered historic barriers to growth, and paved the way for steady progress and development.

The party urged Nigerians to stand fast in their invaluable support of rhe APC, and President Bola Tinubu’s determined commitment to delivering a stronger, secure and more prosperous country for all.
