2023: I look forward to the next miracle, Obi replies Atiku

PRESIDENTIAL candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has expressed hopes that he will emerge victorious in the general elections.

Obi spoke on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday evening.

He was reacting to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Atiku Abubakar’s suggestion that it will be a miracle for the LP flagbearer to become president.

Atiku, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had in an exclusive interview with Arise TV aired on Friday dismissed the possibility of Obi winning the 2023 presidential race.

“It will take a miracle for Labour Party with no structure in the grassroots to win the election” he said.

In his response, Obi stated that his political achievements have all been miracles and he look forward to the next miracle which is becoming the next President of Nigeria.

“I can tell you so many things that have happened in this my journey which can be termed a miracle, and I am looking forward to the next miracle next year to complete the miraculous journey of my political life.” he stated.

Recalling his political trajectory, the former governor of Anambra state said: “Miracle is at the root of our faith, what strengthens our faith is miracle, for me, since I started this political journey, my achievements and records have all been miracles, it has all been miraculous.

“I ran for governor in a party that was less than one year old, when I started in 2003 and won the election, they declared somebody else, I went to court and everybody said it was impossible, there is no way, it has never happened before but after three years, the court declared me the winner.

“I was sworn in, six months I was impeached alongside Fayose and Dariye, I went to court and again I became the first governor to come back from impeachment. So I was the first governor to win through the court, and first to come back from impeachment.

“And then in 2007, about one year in office, INEC conducted an election and Andy Uba won and was sworn in as governor, I went to court again to seek the interpretation of our Constitution that my tenure is four years, everybody said it will never happen but again the Supreme Court declared me the winner which is why you have staggered election in various states today.”

Obi was Atiku’s running mate in the 2019 presidential election which the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari won.
