Peter Obi- Labour Party Presidential Candidate
A few months ago, Peter Obi won the Labour Party presidential ticket and as a result, is set to contest for the seat of the number one citizen of Nigeria in the coming 2023 general elections. His running mate, Senator Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, from Kaduna state, will be his Vice President if he wins.
The man, Peter Obi was the Executive Governor of Anambra state and is now contesting for the seat of the President of Nigeria under the umbrella of the Labour Party.
Mr. Peter Obi wasn’t the only presidential candidate of the Labour Party, of course, but others decided it was best to step down and let him have the ticket.
“Therefore, I have chosen a route that I consider to be in line with our aspirations and my mantra of taking the country from consumption to production; and that is the Labour Party which is synonymous with the people, workers, development, production, securing and uniting Nigerians as one family.” This was culled from his speech after clinching the LP’s ticket.
Mr. Peter Gregory Obi went unopposed by other members of the Labour Party to win the Labour Party presidential ticket to get a chance to contest for the seat of the President come next year.
The race for the Presidential seat is looking rather tough considering the lineup of contestants and Peter Obi’s chances of winning the election come February 2023 will depend on several factors such as the capacity of his running mate, his campaign coordinator, youth leader, etc.
Initially, Peter Obi’s ambition to run for the presidency was mocked by the two major parties and tagged ‘a social media sensation’. However, the tides are fast changing, and Peter Obi, therefore Labour Party is playing the third force card quite well, forcing the opposition and naysayers to sit up and pay attention.
From the look of things, the upcoming 2023 presidential election will not be business as usual, because whether we sink or float is directly dependent on whoever emerges as the winner of the presidential race come next year.
