Deji Adeyanju, (@adeyanjudeji) a human rights activist and convener of Concerned Nigerians, has advised the presidential candidates of the Labour Party, Peter Obi; the New Nigeria People’s Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso; and the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, to collaborate ahead of the 2023 elections.
He stated that Obi, Kwankwaso, Sowore, and other politicians must form an alliance to defeat the two major parties, the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, which are fielding Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar, respectively.

Adeyanju emphasized that defeating Tinubu and Atiku will be a Herculean task unless Obi, Kwankwaso, Sowore, and others work together.
He also stated that elections are won in villages, not towns and cities, and urged aspiring politicians to swallow their pride and work together.
Adeyanju who has also emphasized the importance of political structures at the grassroots said these on Twitter on Monday.
He tweeted: “There’s no way Peter Obi, Kwankwaso, Sowore and other politicians can defeat APC and PDP if they don’t work together because elections are not won in urban areas, but rural areas. Politicians should learn to swallow their pride and work together.
