Amidst the crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a political commentator, Ahmed Bakare has opined that Labour Party (LP) flagbearer, Peter Obi may capitalise on the lapses of the two major opposition parties to get landslide victory.
Naija News reports that Bakare made this known during an interview with DAILY POST while speaking on how both Atiku Abubakar and Bola Tinubu have made the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike a political hero by chasing after him.
According to him, the internal crisis rocking the two major parties is capable of denying them victory in 2023 noting that a thousand likes of Wikes may not prevent the action of Nigerians who are now wiser.
Bakare advised both Tinubu and Atiku to put their houses in order especially as APC has come under serious criticism over insecurity, abject poverty and the cost of loving.
He added that APC will also fail woefully in the 2023 election if they depend on the power of incumbency because Nigerians are tired and are crying for a total change.
He said: “Both the APC and PDP should know better that the internal crisis rocking their parties are capable of denying them victory in 2023, and 1,000 of Wikes may not prevent the actions of Nigerians.
“Let APC not think that the Nigerians of yesteryears are still the Nigerians of today as the insecurity situation, economic hardships, high cost of living, and many other negative factors have made the electorates to be wiser politically.
“If time is not taking, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi may capitalize on their lapses of APC and PDP to run away with a landslide victory in the 2023 presidential election.
“The APC has come under serious criticisms, especially on the insecurity situation, abject poverty, and high cost of living in the land. The party, therefore, needs a lot of homework to convince Nigerians on why the party must return to power in 2023.
“If the APC capitalizes on the power of incumbency, it will fail woefully in 2023. The party leaders should reflect on what happened in the just concluded Osun governorship election, where PDP ran away with victory even though the APC candidate was a seating Governor.
“The PDP in the State capitalized on the lapses of APC like insecurity, abject poverty, high cost of living, and many other negative factors to convince electorates to revolt against APC through the ballot box.
“If the homework is not done properly, the same fate may befall APC in the presidential election because Nigerians are tired of the party’s government and are crying out for a total change.”
