Peter Obi Continues Consultations, Says 2023 Elections Will Determine Future Of Nigeria

Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election, Mr Peter Obi, on Sunday took a swipe at the 2023 Presidential election and concluded that it will not only be the toughest election the country has ever had but that would also determine the future of Nigeria.

The former Governor of Anambra State told members of his party in Minna, Niger State capital that PDP has no anointed candidate for now as being insinuated but assured that whoever emerges as the Presidential candidate of the Party democratically will receive the overwhelming support of all members of the Party. 

Urging Nigerians to elect people who are competent and capable of delivering in their campaign promises, Obi noted that “this next election will determine the future of Nigeria. It will be unfortunate if the election does not go well. Nigeria is more important than all of us, we must ensure that we build a better place for us all.”

Expressed optimism that the PDP will resolve the issue about zoning for the 2023 Presidential candidate amicably, he stated: “Our party is yet to sort out the issue about zoning but I know that it will be resolved amicably. I am not going to preempt what is going to be done but whatever it is, we will all respect the party’s decision.”

In his own contribution, Niger State Chairman of PDP, Barrister Tanko Beji, also declared that there would be no anointed candidate in the party as campaigns for various elected positions for the 2023 elections begins.

According to him, “anyone who thinks he or she would be highly favoured in the Party should jettison the idea as a level playing ground would be given to all candidates vying for all positions.

“We Will provide an enabling environment for all aspirants at the state and federal levels. There will be no anointed candidate from the Governor, Senate, House of Representatives or House of Assembly. Every PDP member in the state who think they have what it takes will be given a level playing ground”, he declared.

He said the ground is fertile for the PDP to take the leadership position at the State and federal levels.
