Anambra State governor, Chukwuma Soludo has said that Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, will not win the 2023 presidential election.
Soludo stated this on Monday in an article published on his social media handle titled, ‘History Beckons an I Will Not Be Silent (Part 1).
This follows the criticism that trailed the governor’s recent remarks on the worth of investment Obi made for the state as the then-governor.
Recall that Soludo during an interview with Channels Television, labeled the investments made by Obi as now worth “worth next to nothing”.
Soludo in his reaction to the backlash that followed his comment said Obi is aware of the game he is playing, noting that Obi does not have the needed structure in place to win the presidential election under LP.
He said, “Let’s be clear: Peter Obi knows that he can’t and won’t win. He knows the game he is playing, and we know too; and he knows that we know,” the article reads in part.
“The game he is playing is the main reason he didn’t return to APGA. The brutal truth (and some will say, God forbid) is that there are two persons/parties seriously contesting for president: the rest is exciting drama!
“That many Americans may not like the fact that Joe Biden (79 years) and Donald Trump (76 years) are two frontrunners for president in their parties does not remove the fact that if both of them emerge as candidates, definitely one of them will be president in 2024.
“As my brother, I wish him well and even pray for him. I told him during his courtesy call that my prayer is that himself or Prof Umeadi of APGA would win, why not?
“That is from my heart, but I also told him that my head and facts on the ground led me to know that it’s probability is next to zero (what I cannot say before you, I won’t say behind you).
“So I already told him my opinion. Indeed, there is no credible pathway for him near the first two positions, and if care is not taken, he won’t even near the third position.”
