To begin with, the trio of politicians is reportedly in a state of anticipation, awaiting the outcome of the ongoing presidential election petitions in court. The verdict from this legal proceeding is pivotal, particularly in its potential implications for their next course of action if the decision doesn’t align with their preferences.
Sources indicate that these leaders are contemplating two distinct scenarios. Firstly, they are considering the possibility that the tribunal might call for a re-election or a rerun of the presidential election. In this event, they intend to unite in a merger, pooling their resources and political clout, to contest the election and challenge both Bola Tinubu and the All Progressives Congress (APC) during this second opportunity.
However, should the tribunal render a different judgment, the leaders are reportedly contemplating an alternative strategy. This strategy entails their collaboration to establish a robust political party in preparation for the upcoming 2027 general election. The aim is not only to bring the three leaders together but also to unify their respective political parties and supporters, with the ultimate goal of wresting power from the ruling APC.
An inside source commented on the matter, revealing, “The initial discussion began between Kwankwaso and Atiku, and they have now extended the invitation to Peter Obi to join them in building a strong opposition force once the court cases reach their conclusions. Although the question of leadership within the opposition hasn’t been addressed yet, they have chosen to defer that decision until after the court proceedings.”
The source went on to explain that the trio’s plan hinges on the conclusion of the legal cases, after which they will strategize and unite either for a potential re-election campaign or to forge a formidable front in preparation for the 2027 electoral battle. Their envisioned alliance could potentially involve a merger of parties such as the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Labour Party, and New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
