As things gear up in sensation for 2023 general elections, the Imo State chapter of the Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Organisation has reiterated that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidates would not be getting any votes in the state in 2023.
The organisation had also revealed that the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi would win all the votes in the state.
The state coordinator of the organisation, Fabian Ihekweme, in a statement on Saturday, said that the group was not interested in the politics going on in LP but was committed to ensuring that Obi wins all the votes in the state come February 25, 2023.
The statement read in part, “There is no debate to the fact that there is no conflict of interest between party administration and campaign council in any flourishing democracy anywhere in the world.
“It is the prerogative of a nominated candidate of a political party to set up his or her own campaign team. The party plays little or no role in some cases when it comes to the determination of the key actors in any campaign council at any level.
“Imo State was recently used as a test case on how a befitting campaign council should be constituted, and it has been widely acknowledged that the Imo State example should be replicated across the country.’’
In another report, the South-West Agenda For Asiwaju (SWAGA ’23) has on Saturday blasted Peter Obi while noting that the 2023 presidential election is strictly going to be a contest between the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC and the major opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
They had dismissed the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, while reiterating that he is not a serious contender as the activities of Labour Party begins and ends on social media.
Speaking with Newsmen, Otunba Bosun Oladele, National Secretary of SWAGA said the outcome of the Osun governorship election where Labour Party got less than 4,000 votes is a test run to what will happen in the 2023 presidential election.
