Nigerian elections: Peter Obi has disrupted a two-horse race - The Financial Times

The Financial Times quotes that Peter Obi has made a significant impact on the Nigerian democratic process by disrupting the conventional two-horse race. The newspaper characterized him as a political newbie who has piqued the interest of young voters.

The global media organization reported that Obi has unsettled some individuals and complicated the outcome of the upcoming presidential election. In the initial round of voting on February 25, Obi will be up against two other veteran politicians who have more financial resources and party backing. Bola Tinubu, a 70-year-old former governor of Lagos, is deemed the principal challenger.

Atiku Abubakar, a 76-year-old former vice president, is running for the People’s Democratic party. A few months back, the majority of Nigerians anticipated that the competition would be between these two affluent septuagenarians. However, Obi, a businessman and ex-governor with a meticulously built reputation for not being interested in power, is something novel. This presents a substantial opening for him.

As per the report, Obi, who is running as a third-party candidate, is performing well in the race, signifying that a run-off election could take place.
