Peter Obi To Emerge As PDP Presidential Candidate in 2027? Bode George Shares Details


Nigeria’s main opposition PDP is getting ready for the 2027 presidential election, Bode George disclosed


The PDP chieftain insisted that the presidential ticket of the party should be given to a southern candidate, noting that a northern candidate would spell doom for the party


This has concluded speculations that the PDP is prepared to wrestle power from the APC in 2027, and to field in Peter Obi, Labour Party flagbearer, as its preferred choice



The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has begun reconciliation of aggrieved members, indicating interest in bringing back the flagbearer of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 presidential election, Peter Obi, to its fold.



The PDP made this known on Monday, December 11, during a press briefing in Lagos state, while addressing the party’s internal issues, Daily Independent report added.



Bode George, speaking on behalf of the PDP stalwarts, maintained that a southern PDP candidate should be given the presidential ticket of the party, as that is the only way the All Progressives Congress (APC) can be kicked out, The Guardian reported.




George insisted that the LP does not have the structure to win national elections, hence Obi should consider returning to the party.


He said:

“The Labour Party doesn’t have the root. The LP was a movement; they don’t have a solid root. LP came out of anger, it doesn’t have the kind of root we have. LP is a wind. Where was Obi? We can still talk to him if he wants to.”
