Tinubu, Peter Obi Battle For Soul Of South
As the 2023 presidential elections draw near, the Southern part of the country seems to have been divided over Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Mr Peter Obi’s candidacy.
In the last few weeks, Obi’s supporters, popularly known as ‘Obidients’ have been holding solidarity rallies across the country.
This week, Tinubu’s supporters also staged a similar rally in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
Although the presidential campaign is yet to kick-off officially, the battle to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023 has plunged Peter Obi of the Labour Party and the All Progressives Congress, APC, flagbearer, Bola Asiwaju Tinubu’s camp into verbal war.
