EXPLAINED: Why Peter Obi Cannot Run As Vice Presidential Candidate For Any Individual – Akin Osuntokun

Published by admin on

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 election, is rumoured to be intending to defect to the People’s Democratic Party, also known as the PDP.

Akin Osuntokun, who served as the former Director General of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council, has responded to the rumours. Sunday was the day that Osuntokun provided his response in an exclusive interview with ARISE TV.

During an interview with BBC Hausa, Atiku Abubakar, the prospective presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the election of 2023, made a passing reference to the possibility of a merger between the PDP and the Labour Party.

According to Osuntokun, the former governor of Anambra State will only accept to join Atiku Abubakar in the presidential ticket of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) if he is given the opportunity to run for president.

As he noted, it would be impractical for some individuals who have run for president under a political party to accept the position of running mate from another individual under the same political party.

Based on Peter Obi’s performance at the polls in 2023, Osuntokun stated that he had a good chance of winning the presidential election in 2027. This is because Obi has a strong track record of winning elections.

Hear him, “It is unrealistic to expect someone who has run for presidency under a political party to accept to be a running mate to another individual. It will be an effort in futility for Peter Obi unless he is invited by the PDP to become its 2027 presidential candidate. Peter Obi has a unique political ambition.”
