Kwankwaso, Obi Alliance: INEC Rules May Hamper LP/NNPP Merger

Kwankwaso, Obi Alliance: INEC Rules May Hamper LP/NNPP Merger

Kwankwaso, Obi Alliance: INEC Rules May Hamper LP/NNPP Merger.

The much-talked-about merger between Labour Party (LP) and New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) might not see the light of the day.

On Saturday morning, the presidential candidate of the NNPP, Rabiu Kwankwaso, confirmed that his party was in talks with the Labour Party.

Kwankwaso had said, “We are in talks with Peter Obi and a committee is working to look into how to form a merger between us”.

“The merger is important because as you can see both the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) did not pick their running mates from the South-East.”

However, a merger might be legally impossible between both parties before the 2023 general elections.

“First a new party via a merger cannot be formed in time for the election.

“INEC regulation prohibits the registration of a political party less than a year before an election.

“But they can collapse their structure to support one another for specific positions eg, the presidency,” Nicholas Ibekwe, a journalist with Premium Times told DAILY POST.

Deji Adeyanju, a popular socio-political commentator based in Abuja, however, is clear as to what agreement should be reached between Obi and Kwankwaso.

“The merger with the Labour Party and NNPP should have Obi as president and Kwankwaso as VP.

“That’s the only thing that makes sense,” Adeyanju tweeted on Saturday.

Kwankwaso’s NNPP has a large following in the North, while Obi who recently defected from the PDP and joined the Labour Party, has endeared himself to large youth following in the South.

On Friday, Obi named former presidential spokesman, Doyin Okupe, as his running mate.

Beyoncé Shares Self-Directed BTS Footage From British Vogue Cover Shoot.

Beyoncé season has arrived. The superstar has been slowly cooking up new music over the past few years as fans anticipate the follow-up to Lemonade. Before she even came through with her new single, “Break My Soul,” she graced the cover of British Vogue in a new cover story detailing her forthcoming effort, Renaissance. Her appearance in British Vogue provided not only new information on Renaissance but also, the stylistic shift in Bey’s career.

Today, British Vogue unveiled new behind-the-scenes footage from the photoshoot, soundtracked by Bey’s latest single. The new video explores the many looks she showed off across the cover story and reveals Beyonce served as both the director and executive producer of the clip.

Yesterday, Beyoncé revealed the official cover artwork for his forthcoming project and shared the inspiration behind the new project. Bey explained that her intention with the project was to create “a place without judgment.”

“Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are,” she wrote.

Check out the cover art below.
