Comrade Chetachi Ikpe, the leader of the OAPA called on Aba’s potential voters to ensure that Obi and Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of the state win the 2023 presidential elections and Abia South senatorial seat.
Ikpe made the call during the Town Hall meeting between Obi, Aba residents, and the business community at the Aba Sports Club.
OAPA, whose membership cut across the All Progressives Congress, APC, All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and Labour Party, LP, insisted that a lot of people who have corrupt tendencies and questionable characters are seeking refuge in LP across the country using Obi as shades to win elections in 2023.
Ikpe said the body will ensure that only credible candidates win elections irrespective of the political parties.
In a related development, Governor Nasir El-Rufai has declared that Mr. Peter Obi cannot win the 2023 presidential election.
El-Rufai explained that the reason behind his assertion is that the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate does not have the numbers, describing him as a Nollywood actor.
According to him, the race is purely between the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
El-Rufai dismissed Obi’s popularity, saying he’ll only get votes in the South-East and some parts of the South-South.
