A former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has described the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, as a danger to look out for in the coming 2023 elections.
Fayose said Obi and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) were cancers to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the elections.
Fayose said this when he appeared on national television.
According to him, although he didn’t believe Obi could garner the 25% of total votes required, he didn’t believe his party could win the South-West nor the South-East.
Fayose further explained that the votes would be split in the North, since either of the PDP nor the APC had ever picked a candidate from the North-West, adding that the presence of the New Nigeria Peoples Party presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso, would also make winning the North-East difficult.
He concluded that it was in the interest of the party and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to reconcile and/or negotiate with Obi and Governor Nyesom Wike of Cross River State.
