Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party (LP), has reacted to Atiku Abubakar’s assertion that he needs a miracle to win the 2023 election. Atiku is the candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Obi claimed in a Channels TV interview on Monday that God’s miracles had always been a part of his political career.
Obi said that in 2003, when his party had only been around for a year, he ran for governor of Anambra State and won.
The former governor of Anambra said that after six months, he had been impeached; however, he successfully contested the impeachment in court and overcame it when most people believed he would not be able to.
He added that his political journey has been a miracle and he’s waiting for the bigger miracle to happen in 2023.
He said: “Well, my political journey has been a miracle. So many things have happened in my life that people never thought would be possible. In 2003, I contested for the Anambra Governorship election under a party that was just one year old, people said it will take a miracle for me to win the election that year, I won.
“Six months later, I was impeached. I challenged the impeachment in court, people said it will impossible for me to come back to office, that no governor has ever come back to office after impeachment, they said it will take a miracle for me to win the case in court, I won the case.
“So my political journey has been like a miracle and I’m waiting for the bigger miracle to happen in 2023. That’s my response to Atiku’s statement.”
