A former presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mohammed Hayatudeen, has revealed the only way the presidential flagbearer of the Labour Party can win the 2023 presidential election.
Hayatudeen added that the presidential candidate of the PDP will take the Northern votes of Muhammadu Buhari in next year’s polls.
Hayatudeen stated this on Tuesday on Channels Television’s Political Paradigm. According to him, except a miracle happens, Peter Obi can’t win the 2023 presidential election.
He argued that the ex-Governor of Anambra would need some years to oil his political machinery or join one of the big parties if he is to actualize his ambition immediately.
Hayatudeen, however, owned up that he may be totally wrong and the 2023 presidential election may just spring a surprise with Obi emerging victorious.
In his words, “The conventional wisdom is that if someone like Peter Obi had a 10 to 15 years project to create a magnificent machine that is robust, that has structures over a period of seven to 10 years, then he can become a force to be reckoned with.
“That is the view that I personally hold and I could be completely wrong. He might prove me wrong. I do not know but in a developing country such as ours…I will wait to see such a miracle happen in this election season.”
