2023: ’I’m counting on you, Peter Obi tells youths, market women
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the Labour Party's presidential candidate, Obi, said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the PDP would not win the 2023 election because the parties have expired and lost their political relevance in the country.
He made this disclosure while speaking with journalists shortly after a meeting with leaders and members of the party in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital.
The former governor of Anambra state said he is banking on Nigeria’s workforce, youths, and market women to beat both the APC and the PDP at the 2023 general elections.
Obasanjo reportedly moves to support Peter Obi
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the outcome of the presidential primary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which produced Atiku as the winner appeared not to have met Obasanjo's expectations.
Anonymous sources claimed Obasanjo "feels strongly that the 2023 presidency should be zoned to the South, in the interest of equity, justice and fairness."
Following the emergence of a northerner as the PDP presidential candidate, the sources alleged that Obasanjo may have concluded plans to throw his weight behind the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi.
