A former Anambra State governor, Mr. Peter Obi, will now forge ahead with his presidential ambition on the platform of the Labour Party after dumping the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Naija News reports that Obi, in a letter dated May 24, informed the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, of his resignation from the PDP and withdrawal from the party’s forthcoming presidential primaries.
A source within Obi’s camp told THE WHISTLER that the former governor and former vice-presidential candidate will now be forging ahead with his presidential ambition on the platform of the Labour Party.
The source, however, noted that the presidential aspirant is under pressure to join the Social Democratic Party (SDP), where he is said to have been promised automatic ticket for the 2023 presidential race.
