Opinion: One Big Risk Peter Obi Should Take Before PDP Congress

The running mate of Atiku Abubakar in the last general election, Peter Obi, needs to take one political risk before the national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which has scheduled to hold later this year. The party needs to resolve some issues affecting the progress of the party politically.

The party is suffering from a lot of internal crises among top members of the party most especially in the Southwestern part of the country. The war of superiority between the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde and Ayodele Fayose is a major crisis the party should attempt to solve at the congress. After talking about issues with the party, the party would also consider the flag bearer of the party in the Congress.

Before the congress, Peter Obi should take a big risk that will enable him for the position of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) towards the upcoming presidential election. Peter Obi is an experienced politician who has participated in politics both at the local level and national level. He is a very known person in his home state, Anambra State.

Despite the fact that the opposition party does not have much influence in Anambra State, people in the state are still giving regards to him whenever politics of the state is concerned. He was once the Governor of Anambra before he left the office in the year 2014 when Willie Obiano of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) took over.

He didn't even lose focus after leaving the governor's office in Anambra State. He ran alongside Atiku Abubakar in the year 2019 presidential election. Unfortunately for Peter Obi, his political party was defeated by the ruling party. There are possibilities that Peter Obi will have an interest in becoming the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the year twenty twenty-three presidential election, he should take a risk before the Congress.

Peter Obi should declare his ambitions publicly for the post of president of the country under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Although it is a big risk for him, he still has to take in order to skyrocket his ambitions ahead of other interested aspirants. It is not only Peter Obi that would have interests in becoming the flag bearer of the party. He needs to take the rest to go ahead of other people.
