FCT, Abuja - Former Kaduna central senator, Shehu Sani, has analysed the possibility of Peter Obi emerging as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2027.

Sani said the mathematical chance of Obi clinching the PDP presidential ticket will start from if the main opposition party will zone the ticket to the south-east, where the ex-governor comes from.

The ex-lawmaker said the zoning probability has to be resolved before talks about support for Obi's candidature can surface.

Sani gave the political analysis via his verified X handle (formerly known as Twitter) on Sunday, May 19.

The former senator added that the PDP national working committee and National Executive Committee (NEC) factors are important in determining the zoning.

He wrote:

“In maths, you have to solve the probability of “If PDP zone to the South East” before arriving at “I will support Obi”. But first, you have to find the factor of the control of “PDP’s NWC and NEC in the quadrant of zoning.”

Three very important equations have to be solved before Obi's candidature can be a reality and these equations would not be easily solved.

Unwana Assam @Unwanaassam1

Lol, very funny yet difficult math. I know PDP will zone the presidency to the North so that Atiku can contest again and Peter Obi who will soon defect to PDP can be his Vice. This is the puzzle.

Chima Echefule @Chimacoeche

Yes, you are right actually, but at this point, PDP has no chance again. The only option is to beg Obi so you can support him.
Unless you still want to be in this situation till...‍♂️

Atiku shares why he may support Obi

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the PDP presidential candidate in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar, explained what transpired when he hosted Obi recently.

The former vice president hinted that he may have to support Peter Obi if the merger between the Labour Party and the PDP works out.
