2027: I Will Consider PDP-LP Merger – Obi by BeeBeeOoh(m): 10:39am On May 27
The 2023 Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has addressed the possibility of a merger between the LP and the Peoples Democratic Party.

In an interview on NoireTV-GlobalBlackTV released on YouTube on Saturday, Obi also reacted to the prospect of being supported as a Southeast candidate in the 2027 presidential election by Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s 2023 flagbearer.

Responding to the interviewer’s question, Obi expressed gratitude for Abubakar’s statement about potentially supporting him as a result of the South-East candidate. “I commend him and I’m grateful for his statements, especially where he said he will support me if it (the presidential ticket) goes to the South East,”
Obi said.

However, Obi emphasised that his primary concern is not personal ambition or political maneuvering, but rather the well-being of Nigeria and its people. “I’m not desperate to be president, I’m desperate to see Nigeria work, especially for the poor people because we have a lot of potential,” he stated.

On the subject of a potential merger between the PDP and LP, Obi expressed openness to the idea, provided that the goal is to better govern Nigeria and unlock its vast potential. “If the merger is to be able to govern Nigeria properly, unlock all those things that will make Nigeria a better place, I’m for it,” he said.

Obi clarified that he has no interest in mergers or alliances solely to secure power or win elections.

If it’s just a merger for election or state capture, I’m not for it or part of it, I don’t want to be part of anything like that,” he asserted.

The former Anambra State governor stressed the importance of unity and cooperation among individuals and parties, but only if the objective is to build a better Nigeria.

He said, “It might be at the party level, it might be at the individual level, might be at any level, but we must come together to be able to build a better Nigeria.”

Anybody that is still supporting this APC's evil regime that have reduced our living standard to nothing has mental issues and need proper check up. Nigeria would not have gotten to this level of mess had APC not stole Obi's mandate. We are with you sir(Peter Obi) come rain or sunshine

"I'm desperate to see Nigeria work especially for the poor people" but;
-you hiked tuition fees and said education is not for the poor after heavy and brutal protests from same póór students.
- you didn't build schools that will be affordable for the poor.
- you didn't build industries that will employ the poor people rather you prefer importing and selling at prices that the same poor people can't afford.
- you asked same póór people to donate for your electioneering campaign despite being a billionaire.
- you can't build sporting facilities to improve the chances of the poor making it in sports.
Tell us more stories obi.
We know you are more interested in "I'm the first lgb0 man to win elections in modern day Nigerîà", "I'm the first to use an unpopular party to be president", "I'm the first this...", "I'm the first that..."
You will NEVER be president of Nigeria, just rest.
You already fluffed your lines in the last election.

This man has no iota of integrity. Those he called structures of criminality are what he's planning to merge with.


Unless he agrees to be Atiku's vice he can't smell the presidency

But your supporters said anyone who votes Pdp is after their lives.

Obi actually believes his supporters are brainless and will swallow anything he throws at them. Unfortunately, their responses indicate that he is very correct

As VP I guess.

That's a big come down - from presidential candidate of a supposedly saintly Special Purpose Vehicle called Labour party to vice presidential candidate of one of the most corrupt political parties the world has ever known.

Think of a triumvirate of Messrs Atiku, Dino Melaye, and Obi on a campaign platform shouting peeeeedeepeeeeee!!!

Ewww!

Mr Obi, are you no longer the saint you claimed to be?

Immediately this guy enters Pdp, they must clip his wings. Very important. That's if Pdp is still interested in winning any national election in the nearest future.
