A former member of the House of Reps, Patrick Obahiagbon, has claimed Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) will not get up to 25% of votes in 24 states in next year’s elections.
Obahiagbon made this claimwhen he featured on The Morning Show, a programme on Arise Television.
According to him, though the election will be keenly contested by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), it has thrown up three presidential candidates; Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi, and Bola Tinubu.
“Only two major political parties are coming into this election. The two major political parties are the APC and the PDP,” he said.
“But that asseveration notwithstanding, I make bold to assert that even though this election is going to be contested by two major political parties, the election is throwing up three major presidential aspirants.”
Obahiagbon said those backing Obi’s presidential bid are Nigerians who have become “completely tired” of the current political class.
“I do sincerely hope that Nigeria’s parasitic political class are learning the necessary lessons that have greeted the emergence of Peter Obi,” he said.
