Nigerian comedian and content creator, Mr Macaroni has stated that the defection of a 2023 presidential aspirant, Peter Obi from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is an opportunity for the populace to rally round another party.
Mr Macoroni stated this in a post shared on Twitter while reacting to the former governor’s defection from the PDP.
Recall Mr. Obi on Wednesday announced he has dumped the PDP ahead of the party’s presidential primary election.
The former Anambra State Governor was said to have tendered his resignation letter at the PDP National Secretariat, through his campaign director, Doyin Okupe.
According to reports, Obi’s exit came as the politician expressed fears he might be humiliated at the convention in Abuja.
Reacting to the development, Mr Macaroni told youths that they can change the narrative that claims only PDP and APC can win elections.
He told Nigerian youths that Obi’s defection was an opportunity to rally around, adding that it was time for other party to do their beats just as the APC and PDP.
He wrote; “Alot of people pushed the narrative that only APC and PDP can win Elections even when some of us said we can change this narrative. We were mocked. People kept praising these 2 parties. Now we want to join the other parties that we have already made less popular.
“I hope we all realize that we can indeed change this narrative of its only PDP and APC and take advantage while we can. These parties don try. Make others sef come try.. We will be mocked but if truly the people are tired, The PEOPLE can change this narrative!!
“Finally, the motivation for us as the people who wish to rally around another party should not be because someone left PDP or APC. It should be because we are tired and because we want better. Because if na by that one, more Giants will leave APC and PDP soon… I rest my case”
