Ganduje in an interview on Channels TV on Monday said it was the Peoples Democratic Party that would suffer the emergence of Obi in the South-East because he would divide the votes of the region, thereby leaving room for the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, to emerge as the winner.
Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has said the emergence of Peter Obi as the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, is a plus to the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The governor said, “The emergence of Labour Party with Obi as the presidential candidate, I think is a good omen to APC because our major competitor, contender is PDP and look at it; what is our political investment in the South-East?; the votes we got from Nassarawa local government in Kano metropolitan was much higher than the total votes APC got in the five states of South-East; so you can see that if there is any problem politically in South-East; it is the PDP that will suffer the much.
“So, the emergence of Obi from south eastern part of this country, I think it is something that it is the votes of PDP he will snatch away.”
