The Convener of Concerned Nigerians movement, Deji Adeyanju, has identified the top presidential aspirants in the Peoples Democratic Party ahead of the 2023 general election.
Adeyanju further stated that the former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi is the most popular candidate in the country.
He, however, stated that the three main candidates in the PDP by delegates power are Atiku Abubakar, Nyesome Wike and Aminu Tambuwal.
The activist claimed that the PDP Governors are divided between supporting Wike and Tambuwal, but there might be plans to unite to oppose Atiku.
Adeyanju in a post on his Twitter account, “The 3 main candidates in the PDP by delegates power are Atiku, Wike, Tambuwal. One of these 3 will be the candidate.
”But Peter Obi is the party’s best option and most popular candidate in the country. I think Peter Obi should leave PDP and join a party he can run on their platform.
“The PDP Govs want one of their own as the party’s candidate. They are torn between Wike and Tambuwal but there are indications they might unite to oppose Atiku.”
They are indications that the main opposition might shift its presidential primaries and other primaries ahead of the 2023 general elections.
