2023 Presidency: How Nnamdi Kanu’s Discharge May Affect Peter Obi’s Chance Of Winning

2023 Presidency: How Nnamdi Kanu’s discharge may affect Peter Obi’s chance of winning can be read below.

News ToGo reports that the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja had yesterday quashed the terrorism charges against the IPOB Leader. That judgment led to jubilation in Kanu’s camp and among his supporters in various part of the country especially the South East.

However, there are feelers that the judgment may affect the chances of Obi, the Labour Party, LP presidential candidate’s chance of winning the 2023 election. There is divergent opinion on the issue. Some hold the view that the judgment can negatively affect Obi’s chance of winning the 2023 presidential election, while others believe it would boost the chance.

Speaking on this issue, a Public Affairs Analyst, Mr Kenneth Onuh, stated that Kanu’s release would affect Peter Obi’s presidential bid negatively. According to him while speaking to Daily Post, Igbos would now continue their agitation for a possible break up from Nigeria. He further said that they may no longer be interested in the Igbo presidency or any form of election.

He said, “The attention of the whole Ndigbo has been shifted from Peter Obi. They are now following their master, Kanu, so Peter Obi and other presidential candidates who were relying on the South-East may have to look for alternatives. Before he was detained, he clearly told everyone that election would not hold in Igbo land. He is back, and agitation continues. This is going to affect Peter Obi more than other candidates”.

Yet, there are those who believe that Kanu’s release would increase Obi’s chances of winning the presidential election. One of them is the President-General of the Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, Mr Goodluck Ibem. He argued that Kanu’s release would favour the Labour Party candidate in the contest. He said, “We are happy that he has been released. The release of Mazi cannot affect Peter Obi negativity, it will rather adds colour to what is already happening”.

Others who hold similar view as Ibem are Obi’s supporters across the country and members of LP who are seriously mobilizing for him to win. One of them based in Abuja said this. His name is IK, a member of LP. He insisted that Kanu’s release would boost Obi’s chances of winning. It is possible that Kanu’s release may or may not affect Obi’s chances. The odds depend on what OBIdients and Nigerians decide to do at the poll.
