2023: Full List of States Peter Obi Must Win to Emerge Nigeria's President and His Possible Chances

Ahead of 2023, a special report by Thisday has analysed the chances of the top three presidential candidates in the general elections: Peter Obi of the Labour Party, Bola Tinubu of the ruling APC and Atiku Abubakar of the PDP.

The report stated that though campaigns are yet to officially begin, the current standing of the major presidential candidates and their parties, based on the assessment of public opinion, is still too close to call.

Focusing on Obi, the report noted that the reality is that the LP presidential candidate is not a known quantity in many parts of rural Nigeria.

Obi's strength, according to the report, is still somewhat limited to social media where OBIdients (his supporters) dominate.

Nevertheless, the report admitted that the resolve of some Nigerians, both home and abroad, to do crowdfunding for Obi, proposing to raise some $150 million and N100 billion for his campaigns, may significantly boost his chances by helping him to set up and properly coordinate structures across the over 8,809 wards and man the over 119,973 polling units in the country.
