"Let's talk about sectional politics, as I have said, Atiku went to the north and said northerners should vote only for somebody from the North, not Yoruba, not Igbo. What can be more ethnic than that?
"Tinubu went to Ogun state and said it is the turn of the Yorubas and when it comes down to the Yorubas, it is my turn; that is the meaning of E mi lokan. What can be more sectional than that?
"Peter Obi went to the Igbo people and at the risk of losing their votes, he told them, "do not vote for me because I am Igbo, vote for me because I'm a man of competence, character and capacity. And Nigerians, he said, it is not the turn of anybody. In 2023, it is the turn of Nigerians."
Okonkwo also said that Peter Obi has displayed an uncanny character and capacity that the nation deserves.
Asked if his candidate, Obi can win the election, Okonkwo said he has already won the 2023 presidential election.
"Check the analysis as I've always told you, take it by polls, you know there are three polls that have come out and in the first one, he scored 23, in the second one 53 and in the third one 75.
"Soon and very soon, before the election reaches when the two candidates will unravel and I am sure they are already unravelling then it will now be Peter Obi and others.
"Because then collectively, they will not have up to five per cent and whenever you don't get up to five per cent you'll be classified as others.
"So it is going to be Peter Obi and others, there is no other candidate."
He added that for Peter Obi not to win the elections would only happen should Nigerians allow thieves to steal their votes at the polls.

Obi said this while addressing the women at the Voice of Woman Empowerment Foundation's event in Abuja.
The Labour Party's 2023 presidential candidate also warned that women are always at the receiving end of bad governance.
