FCT, Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) said the speculations of a possible alliance between former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, and Peter Obi of the Labour Party are fuelled by their mutual desperation to be President of Nigeria.

The ruling said news of Obi's return to the PDP would be hardly surprising as the former Anambra state governor has a reputation for being a political wayfarer while Atiku has a track record of being a veteran political wanderer.

Morka said while it’s unclear which party both men will end up in, Atiku joining the Labour Party will be him living up to his well-established reputation as Nigeria’s most itinerant politician.

He added that Obi and Atiku joining Professor Pat Utomi's mega party will mean sojourning into the political wilderness.

The APC spokesman said for now, Utomi's mega party offers no tangible accommodation for both men.

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 our nation. 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.
