REVEALED: How Peter Obi, South East Gave PDP More Votes Than Atiku’s North-East In 2019

by Victor Ndubuisi

Peter Obi, the Peoples Democratic Party’s vice-presidential candidate in the 2019 elections, contributed significantly to the party’s votes in the previous presidential election in the South-East region.

In the South-East, the main opposition party received more votes than the All Progressives Congress, which ended up winning the election.

In the North-East, where Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s presidential contender for 2019, hails from, the party received less votes than in the South-East.

Following Obi’s resignation from the party, there are concerns that the main opposition party may struggle to gain those votes in the 2023 presidential race.


Recall that Obi stated that he was dumping the PDP because the party had made it impossible for him to continue to contribute to nation-building on its platform.

The PDP in 2019, with Obi as its Vice Presidential Candidate, 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.

On the other hand, 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.
