Nigerians Speak On Peter Obi’s Exit From PDP by ogododo: 9:26am On May 26, 2022
The Nigerians are airing their minds over the resignation of Peter Obi, former governor of Anambra and presidential aspirant, from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday.

Peter Obi’s decision to leave the PDP comes days before the party’s presidential primary is scheduled to hold.

Obi who announced his resignation on Wednesday in a letter addressed to the Party’s Chairman said recent developments within the party made it practically impossible to continue participating and making constructive contributions.

“Our national challenges are deep-seated and require that we each make profound sacrifices towards rescuing our country. My commitment to rescuing Nigeria remains firm, even if the route differs,”.

On Twitter, mixed reactions have trailed Mr Obi’s exit from the PDP with many dishing out what they believe is his reason, the way forward or a possible ripple effect.

@firstladyship, “Peter Obi will defeat the PDP and the APC in any party. The Office of the citizens of Nigeria is the highest office in the land. This organic support has taken off. They can no longer stop us. Only God can. Obi is an idea whose time has come. The gang up against him won’t stop us.”

Reno Omokri, a media aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, blamed Obi’s online followers for the former governor’s decision to leave PDP.

@Renoomokri“Did I not say it? If PDP had fielded @PeterObi, they would have LOST big time. His online followers made him too toxic in every region except the Southeast. They know themselves. Insulting and threatening. As if only their votes could have made him President!” Omokri wrote.”

@chizchio1, “When he #PeterObi said, ‘even if I lose at PDP primaries it doesn’t stop me from contesting for president,’ dey did not get the point, We don’t play politics of sharing money. Nigeria must be great again.”

@YarKafanchan “He wasn’t going to win. This is a fierce battle. He was a lovely candidate and bless your hearts for standing by him. I am in full support of young people supporting Peter Obi and I will continue to egg you people on. Goodluck everyone.

@Yumilicious, “What Peter Obi just did today has just placed him on another level of political recognition and trust. Some of us were skeptical about having PDP coming back to government. So now that he has emancipated himself from them, we Move.”

@sodiqtade, “If Peter Obi gets another party ticket then some neutrals are going to campaign for him. Now the opposition is going to share votes with Kwakwanso in the North, and share votes with Obi in the South East. This isn’t looking good for the opposition that is trying to get back to power.”

@chosensomto, “Peter Obi’s exit from PDP is a sad development; this NWC obviously can’t handle a fair presidential primary election. An aspirant leaving the party just a few days to the election? Terrible signs and optics. Sad day for PDP, maybe the party is not ready after all.”

@jaustineuche, “The lingering and unresolved crisis in Anambra State PDP chapter may have led to Peter Obi

resigning from the party.”

@PoojaMedia “Peter Obi has seen the light that when it comes to buying Delegates, he cant stand some aspirants & if he tries to go that route, it will stain his “uprightness” For him to win from another party apart from the 2 biggest ones will be a miracle. Presidential dream over?”

@offcial_ee90, “Just my concerns (fears) now that He Peter Obi left PDP, if he decides to run as an independent candidate,in another party, he will only succeed in wasting the votes of many Nigerians thereby making it easier for APC to win the general election.”

@udochukwuokenwa, “Any Political Party Peter Obi joins, I’ll follow him to the place.

“If he decides not to run again, I’ll not vote. It is my personal decision. Let whoever that will win win and whether the person performs or not, it is all of us that will enjoy it.”

@ChimozukyI hope this Peter Obi wave is not just a twitter thing. Please let it not end here. Speak to people around you. Educate them on why we need a sound mind like Peter Obi to be our next president.”

@westkal22,”@OfficialPDPNig should watch and see how rapidly we’re going to decimate their relevance here. Wherever @PeterObi goes, we go. Aggressive campaigning and push now. All hands must certainly be on deck.”

@aplha_kingdom, “I told y’all Peter Obi stands no chance. You said I know nothing about politics. Now see the coward you were all supporting.”

However, as the time of filing this report, PDP is yet to react to Obi’s resignation from the party.

I can bet my balls that Now that Peter obi is no longer in PDP. PDP will not even get up to 5,000 votes come 2023! angry

The reason pdp got up to 11 million votes in 2019 was because of Peter obi. This is nothing but the plain truth.

However, we Nigerians have decided that it is Peter obi we want. Any party he goes, we'll all troops in and vote massively for him.

Welcome our incoming president Peter Ahmed Balogun Obi. President Federal Republic of Nigeria come 2023!

PDP is totally dead in South East and Nigeria. PDP simply forgot the difference between south east vote and igbo votes.

Patriotic Nigerians like myself and others will follow obi to the ends of the Earth!

I have always said and maintained that Peter Obi didn’t have the stomach for the politics played on a national scale.
Anambra no be Nigeria oo.. Same reality that will befall Tinubu.
Until we start practicing true democracy.. Such capable persons like Peter Obi will only win on social media.

The actual voters aren’t on social media and don’t share our sentiments.
This clearly shows that PDP will give it to Atiku.. Which means that APC will not risk giving the slot to a southerner because with the political tensions of late, that’ll be handing power back to PDP

When will these emotional dingbats acknowledge that election is not won on social media,

And these igbo folks should understand that Peter obi is not relevant outside South East, even in that South east his fellow politicians will be the first to oppose him we saw it last time.

I put it to you that selecting Obi as VP is one of the reason why PDP lost the last election, SE doesn't matter in anything, the votes from kano alone is larger than anything SE will. bring. You guys should stop overrating yourself

Peter Obi resigning from the PDP shows everything that is wrong with our politics. I would have been surprised if he got up to 10 votes in the primary cos I'm sure he's not ready to spend a dime in buying delegates. I don't blame our politicians for being corrupt, all Nigerians are corrupt. If you know how much these politicians have to spend to bribe delegates, voters, and pay agents just to win election then you will understand while they steal so much that even the devil will be shocked. We pretend that the politicians are the problem, they are not. We are the problem. We prefer those that can throw money around and expect them not to recover their investment when they get into power. What's the difference between America, Canada and Nigeria, it's Leadership. The whole system is fantastically corrupt.
