According to reports, Atiku Abubakar, the former Vice President and a candidate for President in the 2023 general election on the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) platform, has abandoned his old running mate, Peter Obi.
It should be remembered that Atiku and Obi were a formidable combo in the 2019 elections, running neck and neck with Muhammadu Buhari.
Although the duo lost, speculations pointed that they would return in the next elections.
However information has alleged that Atiku whom had already declares his intention to run for the presidential seat in 2023, may have picked Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, as his running mate thereby dumping Peter Obi.
” Prior to the 2019 election, Governor Peter Obi didn’ t have a strong political structure outside the South East. People just loved him because of his vast knowledge of the economy, winning an election goes beyond all that. ”
” For instance, since he left office and joined PDP he has not been able to have his nominees win the governorship election in the state.
Although he is brilliant and can speak good grammar, interprets the economy very well, winning an election is much more than that. How much did he bring to the table? ”
” To successfully run an election in this country you need money, connection, strong and vast political structure, etc, and these you find in abundance in Nyesom Wike.
He is a good material any day and that’ s not the kind of man you leave behind, especially if you want to win election in Nigeria, ” the source claimed. ”
Sources within Atiku’ s campaign organization allege that Atiku’ s resolution to dump Obi was because Obi allegedly made no tangible financial contributions to the 2019 campaign purse as well as inability to win his state Anambra and the South East for the party in the presidential election.
Justifying this decision, the sources disclose that Wike posses the financial buoyancy, connection, strong and vast political structure that Peter Obi lacks, hence the decision to adopt Wike as Atiku’ s running mate.
