‘Obasanjo May Support Peter Obi’
Labour Party South West Leader, Akin Osuntokun last Friday said former president, Olusegun Obasanjo may support the presidential ambition of Peter Obi in 2023.
The political adviser to the former President stated this during an interview on Arise TV on Friday.
Osuntokun when asked if Obasanjo is supporting Obi, he said, “I think so.”
He compared the support base of the former governor of Anambra State ahead of the 2023 election to the one that led to the victory of former United States President, Barack Obama.
