The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, denied on Monday that he offered N40 billion to his NNPP counterpart, Alhaji Rabiu Kwankwaso, to step down for him.

On Monday, the former Anambra governor cleared the air during an interactive session with the Nigerian Guild of Editors, NGE, in Lekki, Lagos State.

“I never knowingly or unknowingly offered anyone money to become president,” he said. I never offered Kwankwaso any money during our conversations.”

According to Track News, the Labour Party allegedly offered Kwankwaso N40 billion to step down in order for Obi to be elected.

On November 5, the Director-General of the Labour Party (LP) Presidential Campaign Council, Doyin Okupe, announced that the party was in talks with Kwakwaso and other NNPP stakeholders about forming an alliance.

Okupe’s claim fueled speculation that Kwankwaso was offered money to resign.
