See Why I Rejected to be Peter Obi’s Running Mate – Mukhtar Shagari
Mukhtar Shagari, a former deputy governor of Sokoto State, has claimed that he declined Peter Obi’s offer to be his running partner in the Labour Party, for the presidency in the 2023 general election.
Shagari asserted that the Labour Party candidate stands no chance in the forthcoming elections when he appeared on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Tuesday.
“The Labour party contacted me and requested if I would like to be the Vice Presidential candidate to Peter Obi,” the PDP chieftain said.
And I looked at the political scenario, what Labour party is, and decided that I cannot be the Vice Presidential candidate to Peter Obi.
“I do not see the path through which Peter Obi will win the election in this country.
“It is so clear that in areas in the South-East, and young people are shouting about him on social media – yes, it’s politics.
“But the truth of the matter is that there are two dominant parties in this country – APC and PDP. If you want to become President, I think you must belong to one of them.”
