Naija News reports Obi is seeking the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party to contest as the party’s flagbearer in the 2023 presidential election.
He has to overcome the hurdles at the primary if he is to emerge the PDP candidate but some emerging reports claim the South East presidential aspirants under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are reportedly working to present former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, as the sole candidate from the region at the presidential primary in Abuja.
Naija News reports that the opposition PDP had fixed its presidential primary for Saturday and Sunday, May 28 and 29.
It was learned that the aspirants might present the former Anambra governor as their consensus candidate to battle it out with other aspirants from other regions.
According to Daily Trust, the aspirants such as former Senate President, Anyim Pius Anyim; Industrialist, Sam Ohabunwa and Nwachukwu Anakwenze, may have concluded arrangements to present Obi as the consensus candidate from the South East.
Some of the top aspirants in the region reached out to others to present a consensus candidate who can win the PDP presidential ticket for the South East.
