The New Nigeria Peoples Party has said its presidential candidate, Dr Rabiu Kwankwaso, will not step down for his Peoples Democratic Party counterpart, Atiku Abubakar.
The spokesman for the NNPP, Major Agbo, who disclosed this in an interview with newsmen yesterday, faulted a report that northern leaders were pressurising Kwankwaso to step down for Atiku.
According to him, Kwankwaso is in the race to win, stressing that he will emerge the next president of the country.
The NNPP spokesperson did not, however, rule out the possibility of alliance talk, which he said would be done on its terms.
When asked about the update on the alleged talks between his party and the presidential campaign team of the Labour Party, Agbo dismissed the report.
