Kola Abiola, presidential candidate of Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), says the party is currently not considering alliance with other parties ahead of the 2023 general election.
He said this on Saturday at the launch of the party’s manifesto for the 2023 elections in Abuja.
Abiola is the first child of the late MKO Abiola, the acclaimed winner of June 12, 1993 presidential election.
Speaking at the event, he said the PRP has strong grassroots network to win the 2023 presidential election.
“I can’t see any right away. You have to run the race before you start thinking of an alliance,” he said.
“We have a very strong grassroots network. We have been campaigning at the grassroots. We will soon begin our national campaign.
“We have a wide reach. We are in all the local government areas of the country and we have 711 candidates nationwide. That is what we require to run a successful campaign.
“We are a national party that will make a big difference in the election.”
Abiola also dismissed insinuations that he was riding on his late father’s legacy.
“It is very unfortunate and ignorant of people to say that. I’m a man of my own right,” he added.
