Chukwuma Soludo, Anambra state governor, has said that Peter Obi stands a zero chance of winning the 2023 presidential election.
Soludo disclosed this on Monday in an article titled, ‘History beckons and I will not be silent (Part 1).”
According to him, Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate may not come in third position in the election.
The Anambra state governor accused Obi of playing games adding that the 2023 presidential election is between two candidates – Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress.
“Let’s be clear: Peter Obi knows that he can’t and won’t win. He knows the game he is playing, and we know too, and he knows that we know,” Obi announced.
“The game he is playing is the main reason he didn’t return to the All Progressives Grand Alliance. The brutal truth (and some will say, God, forbid) is that there are two persons/parties seriously contesting for president: the rest is exciting drama!
“As my brother, I wish him well and even pray for him. I told him during his courtesy call that my prayer is that he or Prof Umeadi of APGA would win, why not?
“That is from my heart, but I also told him that my head and facts on the ground led me to know that its probability is next to zero (what I cannot say before you, I won’t say behind you).
“So, I already told him my opinion.” Indeed, there is no credible pathway for him near the first two positions, and if care is not taken, he won’t even near the third position,” Soludo declared.
