By Frank Oshanugor
Few hours after the announcement of his resignation from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Coalition for Peter Obi’s (CPO) presidential ambition on Wednesday hailed the former governor of Anambra State for listening to their quest to dump the Party saying the PDP has automatically lost about 15 million votes with the development.
The coalition in a statement issued after the official announcement of Peter Obi’s defection from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) urged the former governor to form alliance with credible Nigerians and run for President in 2023.
The group added that Peter Obi as a decent man cannot play the kind of transactional politics going on inside PDP and that is why he is wise to dump the party.
The statement signed by Marcel Ngogbehei, CPO Chairman, reads, “we are delighted that the former governor of Anambra, Peter Obi listened to the quest of his support groups to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), following the shenanigans that is going on inside the party ahead of Presidential Primary of the party.
“With the recent development, it is obvious that PDP has automatically lost 15 million votes because of Peter Obi’s decision to dump the party.
“We therefore urge Peter Obi to look for Nigerians of like minds and run for the
president of Federal Republic of Nigeria in 2023.”
