Why Peter Obi will be voted for massively

Nigeria’s presidential elections are just around the corner with just over a month, the build-up to the elections has shown positive indications towards the chances of Peter Obi.

Recall the 2015 elections; it was a make-or-break election for the Muslims, especially the Northerners.

The Northerners voted en masse to ensure the victory of the current administration.

Before the presidential primaries in 2022, Nigerians expected all the major parties to zone the ticket to the south in the spirit of fair play.

But interestingly, APC zoned to the south while PDP zoned to the north.

Unfortunately for the Christian faithful, both major parties fielded Muslim candidates. To add salt to the wound, APC chose a Muslim vice presidential candidate.

To the Christian faithful, this is seen as an attempt to subjugate them.The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) vehemently opposed such moves, but the ruling party stood by the choice it made.

It could also be recalled that the presidential candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, won the ticket by convincing his northern brothers to step down for him.

This infuriated Nyesom Wike, the runner-up in the primary election and incumbent governor of Rivers.

He led a group of governors, commonly referred to as the G5, to revolt against the party.

With all that has happened in the APC and PDP in the run-up to the presidential election, it is imperative that the majority of Christians and a little bit of Muslims vote for Peter Obi.

The entire southeast, south, plateau, Benue, and southern Kaduna will be locked for Peter Obi.

In the southwest, there’ll be a fight between Tinubu and Peter Obi, especially in Lagos. Northwest will be a battle between Atiku, Kwankwaso, and Tinubu. Northeast will be a battle between Atiku and Tinubu.

With all these permutations and the desire for a Christian president, Peter Obi is likely to win.
