The Igbo socio-political organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo on Tuesday said the camps of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and that of the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu are worried over the popularity of the Labour Party, candidate, Peter Obi.
Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, said Tinubu and Atiku’s camps are having “headaches” over Obi’s popularity.
In a statement he signed, Isiguzoro warned that APC’s perceived Muslim-Muslim ticket would lead to regrettable doom for the party.
He also warned that PDP and APC’s choice of running mates could lead to Obi’s victory in the 2023 elections.
Isiguzoro said: “Ohanaeze worldwide has disclosed that both APC Presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and PDP Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar are nervous and worried about the popularity of the Labour Party Presidential candidate Mr. Peter Obi, who is seen as a unifying candidate for Nigerians.
“There are headaches in the camps of Tinubu and Atiku, as the implications of APC’s Muslim -Muslim tickets will be a regrettable doom, and PDP’s search for a South/south VP will be a catastrophic failure because only a southeast VP will bring fortune to PDP possibly a southeast serving Governor.
“APC and PDP’s blunders in their choices for running mates will hand over a resounding victory to the Labour Party Presidential candidate Mr.Peter Obi. Those contemplating the Muslim / Muslim ticket are enemies of APC Presidential candidate Tinubu and those who are projecting the Delta Governor Okowa to Atiku Abubakar are giving away Atiku’s last chance to win the 2023 Presidential election because Delta will lose both sides of the presidential and Governorship elections in Delta State.”
