2023: How PDP Governors Frustrated Peter Obi Out Of The Party by dynicks(m): 7:06am On May 27
Fresh details of the reasons former governor of Anambra State, and presidential aspirant, Mr Peter Obi, resigned from the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and quit seeking the party’s 2023 presidential ticket emerged yesterday.

Some governors elected on the platform of the party practically pushed him out of the PDP, after a high-wire game of intrigues, and conspiracy, Vanguard gathered last night.

Obi, who was the vice-presidential candidate of the party in 2019, during which his South-East zone contributed more votes to the PDP than the North-East, the zone of the presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, was left with nothing after the power game, it was learned.

In 2019, with Obi on the ballot as running mate to Atiku, the PDP garnered 1,693,485 votes (75 per cent) from the five states of the South-East; and 1,255,357 votes (27.5 per cent) from the North-East.Conversely, the APC polled 403,968 votes (19 per cent) in the South-East and 3,238,783 votes (67.5 per cent) in the North-East.

A top player in the power game in the PDP told Vanguard that “Obi was hoping to emerge as the running mate to Atiku again since the PDP, from all indications, is not ready to cede the presidency to the South-East.“However, most of the PDP governors said they will back Atiku if he makes one of them his running mate. This led to a highwire conspiracy against Obi in the PDP. So he had to look elsewhere to pursue his aspirations.”

Indeed, in his resignation letter to the National Chairman of the PDP, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, the former Anambra State governor said he was quitting the PDP because the party had made it impossible for him to continue to contribute to nation-building on its platform.

Obi wrote: “I am writing to intimate you of my resignation from the Peoples Democratic Party, which was conveyed to the Chairman of Agulu Ward 2. Anaocha LGA, Anambra, effective Friday 20 May 2022. Consequently, I am by this letter informing you of my withdrawal from the PDP Presidential Primaries.

“It has been a great honour to contribute to nation-building efforts through our party. Unfortunately, recent developments within our party make it practically impossible to continue participating and making such 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.”

PDP need the support of the goverors, Atiku need the support of the governors cos they control the delegates so Peter Obi stood no chance. But leaving the party was a bad move. He should have participated in the primaries and lose let the world see the gang up clearly. Now he is going to dash the hope of his supporters in the name of one small party that can't win a senatorial District. Obi should return to PDP and be a statemans. Jumping to small parties will not do him any good. It is only ppl with massive structure like Kwankwaso and Tinubu that can float small parties and they will have impact.

Obi is a paper weight politician. In all honesty, people like him, Osinbajo and Adesina are good administrators, but not good at politics. Nigeria is still controlled by foreign authorities, so we will see who they choose to protect their business interests.

PDP governors owe him nothing. They all have the right to legitimately aspire and negotiate for their ambition. If Peter Obi was strong enough, they won’t be able to push him out.

I even find it very disgraceful to read that Obi was actually hustling to be the sidekick of Atiku while deceiving his deluded urchins that he was contesting for president. Such a lying and duplicitous cretin doesn’t deserve to be president.

Peter Obi was left with no option than to seek his Presidential ambition elsewhere. The governors are also stakeholders and can jeopardize his ambition just to have their way.

No gainsaying that his exit will cost PDP so much goodwill

Obi got these figures with Atiku in 2019, when there was still some hope about Buhari... as at today, these figures have surpassed by over 50%. PDP is the biggest looser here.

Obi would be president the right way and Nigeria would be great again..
