Peter Obi reacts to flyers indicating 2023 presidential bid
Former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi has distanced himself from flyers indicating his intention to vie for the presidency in 2023.
Obi took to Twitter to denounce the flyers on Thursday evening.
He said as a faithful member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he would abide by the final position of the party.
“I am not in any way connected to, neither have I contracted/authorised anybody or organisation to promote the sharing of flyers which assume my intent to contest for office in 2023,” Obi wrote in a message he personally signed.
“As a faithful party man, I am not one to jump the gun on a matter the party is yet to give final directives. I will abide by the final position of the party on the issue.
“For now, my focus remains to advocate for the restoration of security, eradication of poverty, creation of jobs and provision of other productive ventures for the country’s unemployed youths, improving education and making health care accessible in the country.”
