Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has urged the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to negotiate with the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate Peter Obi ahead of the 2023 elections.
Fayose also urged the PDP leaders to settle the crisis with rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike’s faction of the party.
The former governor issued the call while stressing that PDP might not win the Southeast during the presidential election.
He pointed out that the South-South will be a combination of all interests.
Stressing that PDP doesn’t have much work in the North-Central, Fayose said: “PDP and APC did not pick any candidate, either presidential or vice-presidential, from the north-central. The northeast is where the vice-presidential candidate of APC comes from.”
The PDP chieftain also described the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, presidential candidate Rabiu Kwankwaso as a semi-cancer.
“We will give Adamawa State to our party. Don’t forget there is still another Kwankwaso who is a semi-cancer that can equally upstage figures in the north.
“Reconciling or negotiating with Obi will be a good thing and finding a way to make peace with these Wike people will be a good thing too,” Fayose told Channels Television.
