A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and a former member of the House of Representatives has said the Labour Party will not get up to 25 per cent of votes in 24 states in the 2023 elections.
Obahiagbon who said this when he featured on TV programme, explained that although the election will be keenly contested by the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party, it has thrown up three presidential candidates; Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi, and Bola Tinubu.
He said, “Only two major political parties are coming into this election. The two major political parties are the APC and the PDP.
“But that assertion notwithstanding, I make bold to assert that even though this election is going to be contested by two major political parties, the election is throwing up three major presidential aspirants.”
Obahiagbon said those backing Obi’s presidential bid are Nigerians who have become “completely tired” of the current political class.
“I do sincerely hope that Nigeria’s parasitic political class are learning the necessary lessons that have greeted the emergence of Peter Obi.
“A favour that his supporters refer to as Obidient movement but which I choose to describe as the emerging, surging political sirocco of the Obi.
“Nigerians and particularly Nigerian youths have become completely dissatisfied and languorous as to the failings and frailty of the entire Nigerian political class be it APC, PDP NNPP etc.
“This is the statement that Nigerians and Nigerian youths are making. They made that first statement which galvanise into the protest that led to the end SARS debate.
“The Peter Obi movement is a resurgence and emergence of that dissatisfaction.
“Can Peter Obi ride on the crest and wave Nigeria’s disappointment into the comfortable bowels of the Aso Rock Villa? I say no. I don’t see that.
“I don’t see how the Labour Party can muster 25 percent in about 24 states in this election,” he added.
