2023: Coalition Advises Peter Obi On Alternative Running Mate

The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, has recommended the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, to look at other options in light of the failure of the Labour Party, LP, and the New Nigerian Peoples Party, NNPP, to unite as a third force in the upcoming elections.

In order to defeat the two major political parties—the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the current All Progressives Congress, APC—ahead of the 2023 elections, Anaedoonline.ng recounts that the LP had discussions with the NNPP presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso.

There are signs that the endeavor might not be successful, though, since the candidates for the LP and NNPP differ on who should fill in for whom.

The “Kwankwasians” want Peter Obi to run for vice president, although the former governor of Kano State’s camp had anticipated that he would.

The NNPP camp maintained that Kwankwaso will garner 60% of the vote in the North and should be given fair consideration because he has greater experience and the ability to defeat Atiku Abubakar and Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidates for the PDP and APC.

However, the so-called “Obi-dients,” who are largely Nigerian youths, have advised Obi against agreeing to be Kwakwaso’s deputy and emphasized that he would still win the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria even without the NNPP.

Speaking with Newsmen on the controversy surrounding the merger plan, the President General of COSEYL, Goodluck Ibem advised Mr. Peter Obi to choose a youth from the North as his running mate and jettison plans to have Kwankwaso as his deputy.

According to him, Peter Obi does not “necessarily need Kwankwaso to win his elections. Power belongs to God and the people. It is the people that decide who will lead them as President come 2023.

“In 2019, Kwankwaso lost his re-election bid to return to the Senate. He lost his bid to make his anointed candidate governor.

“Governor Ganduje defeated him at the polls. So what is so special about Kwankwaso? He has been losing elections and insisting on bringing him on board will mean getting ready to fail.

“The major supporters of Peter Obi are Nigerian youths from different parts of the country and it will be proper to choose from among them a competent youth who can be his running mate.

“70 percent of Nigeria’s population are youths and anyone backed by Nigerian youths has more chances of winning the elections.

“When Obi contested for governor of Anambra State in 2003, he was a youth and he was not a former political office holder. But people saw his sincerity of purpose and voted for him in the elections.

“Obi does not necessarily need a former political office holder to be his running mate to win his elections. He needs a youth to have an edge over others.

“Presently the country is in total mess economically, educationally, and security wise. The country needs technocrats now to salvage the nation. Obi should look for a technocrat who is a youth from the North to be his running mate”.
