The Coalition for Peter Obi’s Presidential Aspiration, says the Peoples Democratic Party has automatically lost about 15 million votes following the exit of the former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi.
The organisation said this in a statement on Thursday by its chairman, Marcel Ngogbehei, after Obi’s defection from the PDP, applauding him for listening to its request to dump the opposition party.
The coalition called on the former governor to form an alliance with credible Nigerians and run for President in 2023.
According to the group, Mr Obi, as a decent man, would not play the type of transactional politics going on in the PDP.
The statement partly read, “We are delighted that the former governor of Anambra, Peter Obi, listened to the request of his 23 support groups to dump the Peoples Democratic Party, following the shenanigans going on inside the party ahead of the party’s presidential primary.
“With the recent development, it is obvious that the PDP has automatically lost 15 million votes because of Peter Obi’s decision to dump the party.
“We, therefore, urge Peter Obi to look for Nigerians of like minds and vie to be president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the forthcoming 2023 general election.”
