Minister of State for Labour, Festus Keyamo has challenged anyone to bet on the chances of Labour Party’s Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi winning the 2023 election.
Speaking on a Channels Television live interview from the United States, Keyamo admitted that Obi’s candidature is widely embraced by some high profile endorsements but it won’t earn him victory.
Keyamo said recent endorsements by former president Olusegun Obasanjo, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State and Elder Stateman, Chief Edwin Clark cannot give Obi victory.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria said these endorsements only spell doom for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) and expands chances of All Progressives Congress Bola Tinubu to win.
While faulting Obasanjo’s endorsements, Keyamo recalled that the former president’s campaign against Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 polls didn’t stop Buhari from winning
According to him, all the components that made up the PDP are presently disintegrating due to political differences and that Obi further divided the opposition party
