In the process of choosing a standard flag bearer in the forthcoming presidential election, Mr. Peter Obi has rejected the proposed consensus candidate. The Anambra state-born politician frowned at the moment while addressing reporters after paying a visit to the AIT office.
The black-attired gentleman who was putting on a senator suit was not ready to entertain the desperate newsmen who wanted him to continue speaking. The few words he spoke were, “Nigerians want a creative, trusted, and constructive president who would solve their raging issues, not a consensus candidate,” Obi concluded. It will be recalled that the Northern PDP has been clamoring for a consensus candidate who will fly the party’s presidential ticket. It’s uncertain what they mean by that, whether a northern consensus or all zones inclusive of one candidate.
Recently, the northern elders declared Saraki and another as the northern consensus candidates. Governor Tambuwal has since rejected the outcome, even though he was an apostle of the consensus Northern candidate. Some online conducted polls have tipped Obi as the next president of Nigeria.
After Obi ignored the news men and refused to speak further, he entered his black Jeep and banged the door. Nigerians gathered at the scene began to sign “Obi ka anyi ga eso ma onaege ege ma ona nana.” “Peter Obi ka anyi ga eso,” meaning we will follow Peter Obi whether he’s going out or coming in. This suggests massive acceptance of Peter Obi’s presidential ambition. What do you think about this?
