President Muhammadu Buhari’s former Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, has expressed fear over the growing popularity of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, in some Northern States.



Ahmad said Obi’s name has metamorphosed into a movement in Kano and Katsina States.

He warned other presidential candidates that Obi had become a movement to beat in both states.

In a tweet, the former presidential aide said Obi may likely claim 75 to 80 percent of the votes in Kano and Katsina States.

Let me confess, the name Peter Obi alone is a movement to beat. I was in Kano over the weekend and to my surprise, everywhere is PO. Nobody is talking about other candidates anymore and a friend told me that it’s a similar story in Katsina. "LP is getting 75%–80% in those states,” he tweeted.

Obi, who is the former Governor of Anambra State, defected from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the LP.

Since he joined LP, Obi has become a household name among Nigerians who feel he should be the country’s next president.

As Nigeria draws closer to the 2023 presidential election, the clamour for electorates to vote for Obi continues to increase daily.

Despite his growing popularity, the All Progressives Congress, APC, has said its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, has nothing to fear.

Hillard Eta, a former Acting National Chairman of the APC, had said most of those agitating online would end up voting for Tinubu in 2023.

Eta had pointed out that such agitation was nothing new.
