A group, Organisation for Global Youths Peace Empowerment and Development Initiative, has said that the choice of All Progressives Congress and Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidates’ running mates will pave way for Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, victory in the 2023 general election.
In a statement on Wednesday, the group’s National Coordinator, Japhet Omene, said APC and PDP have made a blunder in their respective choices for running mates.
The statement read in part, “it is not a surprise that a lot of Nigerians are already seeing Atiku as an unserious person and as someone who does not heed counsel.
“Nigerians were still trying to understand the reason why Atiku after setting up a committee saddled with the responsibility of choosing a running mate on his behalf, jettisoned its recommendation and proceeded to pick someone else.
“Tinubu on the other hand committed the worst political blunder by choosing to disregard the sensitive nature of Nigeria’s religious diversity.
“The APC Presidential candidate willfully committed the worst political blunder by his choice of a Muslim-Muslim ticket which is already dividing Nigeria across religious line.
“Nigerians are now left with no other choice than to massively vote for Peter Obi who has been prudent in ensuring that Nigerians do not find faults in his candidacy.”
The group said the action of the two candidates could herald the emergence of Peter Obi as the next president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
