Obi, Kwankwaso cannot win 2023 election with sectional sympathy, social media frenzy – APC chieftain, Ajaka

Obi and Kwankwaso

Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Yakubu Ajaka, said Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi, like his counterpart in the New Nigerian Progressive Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso, enjoy sectional sympathy that can’t win the 2023 election. 

Ajaka, who stated this while speaking with journalists on Sunday in Abuja, added that boys would be differentiated from men when political campaigns start.

He said, “Just like Kwankwaso, Peter Obi is only enjoying sectional sympathy, but a real presidential candidate needs to enjoy acceptability from all parts of the country.

“So, we believe that Peter Obi should enjoy his social media frenzy for now before the real campaign starts very soon.”

The APC chieftain noted that Kwankwaso should return to the ruling party, where he can have a great chance of becoming president in the future.

He stressed that winning one or two states in the North-West won’t make him the president.

He stated: “Kwankwaso knew about the formation of APC, he contributed immensely to its success in 2015, and our leaders hope to repay him at the appropriate time, but he cannot be outside to be a beneficiary in the nearest future.

“So, that is why I said it’s not too late for him to return to the APC. That’s where he naturally belongs and has an assurance of becoming a president one day, and not his current sectional NNPP.

“Although, some people might be deceiving him by calling him Mr President already, but just one or two states in the North-West can’t make him a president. Kwankwaso needs a national party like APC to achieve his presidential ambition. So, I urged him to do the needful before it’s too late,” Ajaka said.
