Step Down And Present Peter Obi - Activist Warns PDP Candidates

An Abuja-based activist, Deji Adeyanju, on Monday, urged the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP presidential aspirants to close their ranks and present Peter Obi as the party’s flagbearer.

Presidential aspirants like Nyesom Wike, Bala Mohammed, Emmanuel Udom, Aminu Tambuwal, and others should step down for Obi in 2023.

He warned that PDP might remain in opposition for another eight years. If it fails to produce a formidable candidate in 2023.

The convener of Concerned Nigerians said Obi has what it takes to get PDP back into power. Adding in an open letter that his campaign would require little funding.

According to Adeyanju “With the recent signing of the Electoral Act Bill into law, there has been a flurry of political activities geared towards the 2023 presidential election. Naturally, several political actors within the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) have shown interest to vie for the office of the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“However, I have noticed with dismay that rather than close ranks, some Governors of the PDP stock have engaged in a “fight to finish." In an attempt to emerge as the PDP’s presidential candidate. Sadly, there seems to be no voice of reason to call the governors to order. If the PDP fails to produce a candidate that will resonate with the average Nigerian, the party may fail. And find itself out of power for another 8 years, and consequently, become a mushroom party and face subsequent extinction.

“Accordingly, the business of who becomes the PDP’s presidential candidate is a business that affects all Nigerians. Hence, this open letter. I urge the PDP governors, especially Governors Nyesom Wike, Emmanuel Udom, Bala Mohammed, Aminu Tambuwal and other PDP governors to put their egos aside, to come together and pick one of them as PDP’s presidential candidate.

“In the unlikely event that the Governors are unable to come together and pick a governor as the PDP’s presidential candidate, I strongly urge you to support Peter Obi as PDP’s presidential candidate for the 2023 election. At this time, equity, fairness and justice demand that the office of the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is zoned to the South East. Peter Obi stands head and shoulder over all other candidates from the South East, whether of the PDP or of the APC. He is a consummate businessman and a trusted political administrator. His candidacy is one that will require little or no campaign. Nigerians across the board are already agitating for him to become the president. It is, therefore, politically wise to support his aspiration. A Peter Obi presidency will not only heal the nation’s fault lines but will also restore the country’s economic growth.

“It must be stated that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will almost certainly become the PDP’s presidential candidate. An Atiku’s presidency will be a continuation of the present gerontocracy that has set the country several years back. I hope that the PDP and its governors will heed this timely warning. Hence, the need for Governors to agree on either of the foregoing options.”
