2023: Peter Obi Opens Up On Presidential Ambition

Listen to article

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s vice presidential candidate in the 2019 general elections, Mr Peter Obi, has opened up on the only condition to join the 2023 presidential race.

Obi, who was the running mate to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in 2019, said he will join in the race if his party, the PDP, zones the ticket to the south.

However, the former Anambra State Governor seems not to be certain about what the situation would be if the PDP throws the ticket open for the north and south.

‘Yes, I will step into the field to contest for the opportunity to serve this great country as President if my party, the @OfficialPDPNig, zones the ticket to the south. But if it is thrown open, Nigerians will also hear from me,‘ Obi tweeted on Monday night.

This is coming a few hours after the Sokoto Governor and former House of Representatives Speaker, Aminu Tambuwal, announced his intention to contest for president in 2023.

Also, a former Kwara State Governor and ex-Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, last week hinted on joining the 2023 presidential race under the PDP.

The Eastern Updates reports that there has been serious clamour for the Presidency to move to the South in 2023 after President Buhari’s eight years as a Northerner.
