Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki on Monday declared that Peter Obi’s Labour Party (LP) is a major challenge to Atiku Abubakar’s 2023 presidential ambition.
He said particularly in the southeast, the Labour Party will be a major challenge for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) but the party will still perform well.
Saraki despite his observation, however, maintained that Atiku who is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate would win enough votes to be declared the next president of Nigeria.
He listed North-west, North-east, South-south and North-central as the major regions that the PDP and Atiku will win, adding that they will take the required 25 per cent in more than 24 states.
He made the submission during an interview on Arise TV Morning Show.
He said; “South-South is a strong PDP area. We will do very well in South-South, South-East, the challenge we have there, of course, is Labour.
“But we will still do well in the South-East and take our 25 per cent. We will do well in North Central, we will do well in North-West and North-East.
“We need four zones. By the time you have four zones, you will win the election.
“The four zones that we will win are North-west, North-east, South-south and North-central, and we will take our 25 per cent more than 24 states. There is no doubt about that.”
