The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, has been compared by the former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, to long- term cancer for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
For the PDP’ s chances in the 2023 presidential election, according to Fayose, Obi is a serious threat. On Thursday evening, he made this disclosure in an interview with Channels TV.
Additionally, Fayose issued a warning that the Southwest might not support the PDP in the 2023 presidential election.
The PDP leader added that in 2/3 of Nigeria’ s States, the LP presidential candidate might not receive 25% of the vote.
He said, ” Obi is a danger to watch out for. I don’ t believe Obi will make 25 percent of votes in two- thirds of the States of the federation.
” I’ m not against Obi. I love him and he is a very vibrant leader. I don’ t believe he will get the required 25 percent of votes because of my permutation as Ayodele Fayose, but with God, nothing shall be impossible.
” Let me say Obi is more of chronic cancer to PDP and there is no denying it. Let me give you an analysis. In the South- West, people might not like to hear that, I don’ t see how PDP will win. ”
In order to pursue his presidential ambitions, the former governor of Anambra State left the PDP in May and joined the LP.
