Nigerian journalist and presidential aspirant, Dele Momodu has opined that Peter Obi cannot win the 2023 presidential election from the Labour Party.
Dele Momodu disclosed this earlier today when he appeared on a current affairs programme ‘Your View’ on TVC stating that he and Peter Obi were the best candidate in the main opposition party, PDP, but he absconded.
When asked if Peter Obi would be able to pull the type of votes Trump did in the US which nobody thought existed or get a large number of youths to vote for him in the general election, Dele Momodu said it’s impossible.
Giving his reason, Dele Momodu said he started his political career in Labour Party and the first thing Peter Obi would face is to fund the party because the party is not financially buoyant and Nigerians do not make contributions.
According to Dele Momodu, Peter Obi cannot win the presidential election from a fringed local party like Labour.
He questioned if Obi can use his hard earned money to fight Atiku and Tinubu.
In his word: “For me, the two of the best that was in PDP were myself and Peter Obi and he had absconded. I was in labour, I started my journey from labour, the first thing Obi will face in Labour is to fund the party because the party does not have money and Nigerians don’t make contributions.
“After I lost the first ten million, I started shaking because they said they were setting up a structure. You cannot win a presidential election from a fringed local party like Labour, Peter Obi has money unlike me but can he spend his hard earned money on fighting Atiku and Tinubu if he emerges the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Party, he can’t”
