Kwankwaso made his selection, after failing to secure Peter Obi, the former governor of Anambra State and presidential candidate for the Labour Party, as his running mate.

The Labour Party and the NNPP had previously declared that they were in talks to form an alliance ahead of the 2023 elections, but those talks were terminated by Obi’s unwillingness to serve as Kwankwaso’s running mate.
