I Am Different From Them – Peter Obi Explains Why He Left PDP For Labour Party

Posted by Thandiubani on Tue 08th Nov, 2022 - tori.ng

The former Governor of Anambra State was a loyal member of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) before joining PDP.

 
The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi has opened up on why he left the Peoples Democratic Party and moved over to the Labour Party.
 
According to him, the reason is because he's different.
 
Obi said when he sees some things not going the way he thinks they should, he moves on. He added that he would rather do the right thing and lose than do the wrong thing and win, that is why he's different.
 
Recall that Obi was a former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) member before he decamped to Labour Party a few months ago.
 
The former Governor of Anambra State was a loyal member of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) before joining PDP.
 
Governor of Delta State and Vice Presidential candidate to PDP’s Atiku Abubakar, Ifeanyi Okowa, recently re-echoed the knock on Obi, stating that the former governor cannot claim to be a different breed.
 
Okowa who spoke during a town hall meeting organised by Arise TV over the weekend said Obi cannot claim to be strange to the main opposition party in Nigeria because he was once a member of the party.
 
The APC chieftain said, “The last time I checked, in 2019, I’m sure Peter Obi was the vice-presidential candidate to Atiku Abubakar and he paid a lot of tributes to Atiku Abubakar and the last time I checked, up till May 24, 2022, he was still an aspirant under the PDP.

“So, he cannot claim to be strange to the PDP or to the party. It is wrong to present that situation to Nigerians and I think it is important to address issues the way they are.”
 
However, in an attempt to defend his person, Obi while interacting with Trust TV said he is different from other politicians because he seeks to do the right things.
 
According to him, he would rather lose doing the right thing than win doing the wrong thing.
 
“I am different. The difference is that when I see things not going the way I think they should, I move on. I would rather do the right thing and lose than do the wrong thing and win, that is why I am different,” the former governor noted.
