All hope is not lost, Obi assures of PDP's chances of unseating Buhari

Former Governor Peter Obi has assured members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, that there is still hope for the party to take over the reins of power in the country.

Obi, who was the Vice Presidential candidate of the PDP in the last election, stated this during the party’s stakeholders meeting in Awka, adding that all hope was not lost as the party had a good case at the ongoing election petition tribunal.

Speaking on the ongoing legal fireworks at the tribunal, Obi said: “Election in Nigeria is not easy. After the election, you have to still go to court and queue up, and that is where the real money is spent in hiring lawyers. But I must assure you that all hope is not lost because we are progressing steadily.

“The man who is there now has contested for four times before he made it, and we are also confident that in no time, the right thing will be done.

“In church this morning (yesterday), when the priest called up prayers for Nigeria, the man sitting next to me told me he had stopped praying for Nigeria long ago, but rather prays for the removal of APC, since we already know who the problems of the country are.

“Nigerians are already disenchanted with the APC, and even the APC members are also complaining, so that has made PDP a brand today, and marked her out as the only party that can deliver Nigeria.”

The former Governor also insisted that as the country stood at the moment, PDP remained the only hope of a progressive and prosperous Nigeria as the All Progressives Congress, APC, had failed the country and its citizens completely.

Obi also thanked members of PDP in Anambra State, saying that it was only in Anambra that the APC failed to get as little as five per cent.

“That feat was made possible by all of you here despite the fact that they had all the security agencies working for them. And here in Anambra we also had a governor who was strongly against us, but they could not get five per cent, Obi further said.” be
