With the 2023 general elections fast approaching, Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa has come out to dismiss the chances of Labour Party (LP) presidential flag bearer, Peter Obi on the ballots.
Speaking at a meeting of northern Christian youths in Abuja on Tuesday, gave some permutations as to how the Labour Party could get its votes in the upcoming elections, insisting, however, that there’s no magic with which the party can emerge victorious at the polls.
“Lately, we are beginning to see the rise of the Labour Party. The party might do well in the Southeast, but outside that region, they have no strength and structure that will earn them victory in the polls. They might also do well in north central but not very strong. They don’t have structures in the southwest, south-south, northwest, or northeast. So there’s no magic they can do to win the elections.
The danger is that the North-Central and Southeast where the party hope to get votes from are traditional strongholds of the PDP. So the more votes you take out from those regions, the more the strength of the PDP is reduced. If this happens m, then what the church is trying to avoid will befall the church, which is for APC to win an election again,” Okowa said.
