Peter Obi will lose in South-West – Dele Momodu

Dele Momodu, a chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP has said that Peter Obi, the presidential flagbearer of the Labour Party, LP would not win in the South-Western Region of Nigeria in the 2023 presidential election.

Momodu made this revelation during a television session on Monday.

The PDP chieftain said that rallies alone cannot win elections in Nigeria.

Momodu said “Rallies alone will not win an election. I have no doubt that Peter Obi is a popular candidate but don’t forget the proximity of the South-East to Delta state. They are almost one and the same.

“We can make all the noise. You saw what happened in the last gubernatorial election in Osun state. There was no party outside those two (PDP and APC) that could make an appreciable impact,” he added.

Momodu, who’s the Director of Strategic Communications of the PDP, has narrowed down the presidential contest, as he described it as a contest between the PDP and and the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He further said, “By the time you come to Lagos, which is the traditional base of Asiwaju and of APC, you’re going to split into three because of the preponderance of the Igbo community,” he said.

“There would be Asiwaju, followed by Atiku, and followed by Obi because there is a large number of Igbo people there and youth who believe in Obi. And that’s the most cosmopolitan state in Nigeria.

“But the moment you start moving into Ogun State, Oyo State, where PDP is king today, then you go to Osun State.

“In Ogun state, we will compete favourably. It’s going to be between Asiwaju and Atiku; there is no way Obi is going to get 25 percent in Ogun State; he is not going to get it in Oyo State, he’s not going to get it in Osun State,” Momodu added.
