The Presidential candidate of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso, says he would not step down from the presidential race.
Kwankwaso said this while reacting to comments by the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on Tuesday.
Atiku, in an interview with BBC Hausa, had claimed that he is in talks with Kwankwaso and the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and that one of them is likely to support his presidential bid.
But speaking in an interview with Channels TV monitored by OduNews on Thursday, Kwankwaso denied being in talks with the former vice-president.
He said: “You see, I was highly disappointed with him because I saw his interview even though it was not as bad as his supporters carried it. He didn’t say me or Peter Obi will step down for him.
“What he said from the video that I saw was that he is talking to us and that’s not correct. Except for here in Lagos when I came to do the arise debate or town hall meeting, since I left PDP have not seen Atiku eye to eye and I refused to talk to anybody.
“Because you see, the only thing remaining for PDP and All Progressives Congress, APC, now is propaganda.
