Arewa Youths Forum: Why Peter Obi Will Not Get Votes From The North In 2023



The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) has said that the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, stands little or no chance in getting votes from the North.

AYCF National President, Yerima Shettima shared his thoughts on the political atmosphere in the country during a chat with Daily Post.


Shettima opined that there are three candidates who would divide the votes of the North namely All Progressives Congress( APC) Bola Tinubu, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).

Shettima stated that Obi’s followers have not done enough work in the North to guarantee him votes in the region.


According to Shettima: “The vote of the North will be divided between Tinubu, Atiku, and Kwankwaso. Peter Obi will get little or nothing in the North; this is not because he is an Igbo man but because so many factors are involved.

“Not because he lacks the competence, but his lieutenants have not done enough work in the northern part of the countr.”

Shettima also stated that the 2023 elections will hold adding that attempts to undermine the polls would be resisted.

According to him: “The electoral body has not come out to say they can’t conduct elections, even when that incident happened in Ogun State, they came out openly to say elections must hold.”
