Ayodele Fayose, the former governor of Ekiti state, has described Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), as a chronic cancer to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Obi had quit the PDP after realizing he might not get the ticket of the party. He had run as running mate to Atiku Abubakar of the PDP in the 2019 presidential election.
Commenting, Fayose said, “ (Peter) Obi is a danger to watch out for. I don’t believe Obi will make 25 percent of votes in two-third of the states of the federation.
“I’m not against Obi. I love him and he is a very vibrant leader. I don’t believe he will get the required 25 percent of votes because of my permutations as Ayodele Fayose, but with God, nothing shall be impossible.
“Let me say Obi is more of a chronic cancer to PDP and there is no denying.
“Let me give you an analysis. In south-west, people might not like to hear that, I don’t see how PDP will win. Anybody deceiving us can continue to deceive us.
“I don’t see how PDP will win in the south-east. South-south will be a combination of all interests. Let me come to the key states of the north.
“Without deceiving ourselves, there is so much work to do in the north-central. PDP and APC did not pick any candidate, either presidential or vice-presidential, from the north-central. The north-east is where the vice-presidential candidate of APC comes from.
“We will give Adamawa state to our party. Don’t forget there is still another (Rabiu) Kwankwaso who is a semi-cancer that can equally upstage figures in the north.
“Reconciling or negotiating with Obi will be a good thing and finding a way to make peace with these Wike people will be a good thing too.”
