Labour Party’s Peter Obi wanted NNPP’s Kwankwaso as a Northern attachment. NNPP’s Kwankwaso wanted LP’s Peter Obi as a Southern attachment. Each one of them has acquired cult status among his supporters, so his support base is not transferable. To paraphrase my former teacher, there is no empirical method by which you can determine the superiority of one political cult over another. Hence the bickering over who should play second fiddle to who.
