2023: I’m Looking Forward To The  Next Miracle, Peter Obi Replies Atiku

Presidential candidate of Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi has replied to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar that all his records have been a miracle before becoming Anambra state governor.


Recall that Atiku in an interview last week  dismissed the chances of the Labour Party in the 2023 election, saying that the presence of his erstwhile running mate cannot boost the chances of the party, because it has no structure.

But Peter Obi, while reacting to Atiku’s statement in an interview with channel television on Monday said his records and achievements have all been miraculous. 

“my achievements and records have all been miraculous if you check. I ran for governor in a party that was less than one  year old. When I started in 2003 I won the election, they declared somebody else, I went to court everybody felt it was impossible; there was no way it would happen before after three years the court declared me a winner. 

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

“And then in 2007, about one year in office, INEC conducted an election and I was sworn in as governor, I went to court again to seek interpretation of our constitution and my tenure; four years everybody said it would not happen. Again the Supreme Court declared me the winner which is why we have off- session elections in various states today. So, I became the first governor to seek the interpretation of the constitution today.

Obi noted that he was  the first governor to serve two terms in Anambra state. “I can go  all to tell you that so many things that happen to me in this journey that one can say is a miracle that one can say is a miracle. And I’m looking forward to the next miracle next year to complete the journey of my political life”.
