Abuja - Having pitched his tent with Peter Obi ahead of the 2023 presidential election, Babachir Lawal, a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is wondering why the ruling party has not sacked him.
During Obi's interactive session with north-eastern stakeholders in Abuja on Monday, December 5, Lawal made it clear that the coming election is a must-win for the Labour Party's presidential candidate.
In fact, Lawal, who said victory is the LP's only option, noted that Obi is sure to win going by the current situation in Nigeria, Vanguard reports.

The APC bigwig said:
“I am in APC and a member of the Board of Trustees of the party, but I am doing the Peter Obi/Yusuf Datti movement. The APC has not sacked me yet. I don’t know what they are waiting for.
“We want (Obi) to win this election and must win this election. If we lose this election, we’ll all migrate to Cameroon because of the shame and disgrace of failure to win. It is not about whether we have options, Peter Obi must win this election."

Peter Obi is who Nigerians need
For Lawal, Obi is competent to give Nigerians the change they have been yearning for since 2015.
“Fortunately, we have a competent person in Peter and his running mate. We need an arrowhead to drive this change and these two provide it.
“I am not interested in LP as a party. I am interested in Peter Obi as a potential presidential candidate. It doesn’t matter which party Peter Obi is, I sense that Nigerians are due for change.."
