A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Doyin Okupe, has disclosed that the former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, will be on the ballot paper in the 2023 presidential election.
Okupe made this known after submitting Obi’s resignation letter to the National Chairman of the PDP, Iyorchia Ayu, at the part’s National Secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday.
Speaking to reporters, the Coordinator for the Peter Obi Presidential Campaign stated that the former governor is not desperate to be President, but he’s desperate to cause a change.
He said: “You will recall that consistently, former Governor Peter Obi has repeatedly stated that he’s not desperate to be President, but he’s desperate to cause a change, to cause a redirection, to change the way the government of Nigeria is being run and it’s for this reason and to offer a solution to the various problems of Nigeria
“It was for these reasons that he entered into the race. According to what he said in his letter, various developments in the PDP, make it virtually impossible for him to find the full expression of his desire on the platform of the PDP.
“This is not to say that all hopes are lost. I can say on his behalf that Nigerians must not give up, we must never give up. Hope is on its way and help is coming.
“All options are on the table, by the grace of God Obi’s name will be on the ballot in 2023”.
