Why Peter Obi Will Get More Votes In North
Meanwhile, reasons have been given as to why the Labour Party (LP), presidential candidate, Peter Obi would get more votes in northern Nigeria than in the southern part of the country.
According to the Director General of a voters coalition initiative, Big Tent Nigeria, Ibrahim Abdulkarim said Obi would get more votes in the north at the polls because the people of the north are angry and tired of insecurity, illiteracy, and unemployment, amongst other issues impoverishing them.
He said contrary to what people think that Obi would not have votes from the north, it will amaze people it won’t turn out so because more of the people in the north are angry.
Naija News gathered that Abdulkarim made this submission when he was featured on Channels TV’s special election programme, The 2023 Verdict on Wednesday.
The Labour Party chieftain explained that the northern part of the country, which is made up of 19 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) boasts of numerical voter strength evidenced in the last six elections since Nigeria’s return to democracy in 1999.
