2023 Election: It Will Be Difficult To Work With Tinubu, Peter Obi – Ned Nwoko
The Delta North senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ned Nwoko, has said it will be almost impossible for him to enjoy serving as a senator under either of the presidential candidates of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, and Labour Party’s Peter Obi.
According to Nwoko, winning the 2023 election for him is not a do-or-die affair. Naija News understands that the politician and business mogul said this today during an interactive session with journalists in Asaba.
Nwoko was a guest at ‘The Platform,’ a programme organized by the Delta State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ).
In his address, the senatorial candidate said he wouldn’t like to be in the opposition if he emerges as the next senator in the red chamber.
He, thereby, encouraged Nigerians to vote for the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, saying being a senator under a candidate of his party will be easier than under an opposition party candidate.
Nwoko stressed that it would be an uphill task for him to go and convince Peter Obi and Tinubu to do what he wanted for him.
He stressed: “It’s almost impossible. But if I have Okowa and Atiku, it’s easy. Please, make room for them. I believe they will make things happen. If I am in opposition, it becomes a problem.”
Nwoko noted that the PDP agenda would be those things discussed and agreed upon with the people. While noting that the same goes for the governor, Nwoko told the people that they were shooting themselves in the leg if they chose to support a candidate of the APC to be governor of Delta State.
“I cannot work with an APC governor. I know him,” he said, soliciting support for all PDP candidates in the forthcoming elections.
