Peter Obi, the former vice-presidential candidate in the 2019 general election under PDP, has declared his intention for the 2023 Presidency.
His intentions were made known on Tuesday via his verified Twitter page.
Although he placed a condition that must be met before he will join the race, loyalists say he has more or less declared.
The former governor of Anambra said he will love the opportunity to serve Nigeria as its President if his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) zones the ticket to the South.
However, if it is thrown open as well, Nigerians would hear from him, he concluded.
On Twitter, he wrote: “Yes, I will step into the field to contest for the opportunity to serve this great country as President if my party, the @OfficialPDPNig, zones the ticket to the south. But if it is thrown open, Nigerians will also hear from me -PO”
This is coming at a time when the political tussle for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) ticket is at its toughest.
