The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, Peter Obi has reportedly succumbed to pressure from support groups asking him to dump the Peoples Democratic Party.
According to the WHISTLER, the former Anambra State governor is perfecting plans to defect to the Labour Party, due to the politics of the PDP delegates’ election.
This comes after the Coalition for Peter Obi (COP) heaped pressure on the former governor to leave the PDP in order to realize his ambition to be president of Nigeria.
The support groups had warned the former governor of what will become of his political career if he failed to leave the PDP as most of the delegates in the party are bought by money bags who will vote in the forthcoming PDP presidential primary.
They, therefore, advised the former governor to move to another political party to be at peace with his conscience and not to entangle himself in possible political negotiations or maneuvering that will stain him and hamper his ability to serve Nigerians.
This was disclosed in a statement jointly signed by the conveners of the Coalition of over 17 support groups that recently organized a One-Million-Man March that witnessed massive, turnout across the 36 states of the federation and FCT.
