A chieftain of the Labour Party, Prof. Patrick Utomi, has explained why LP presidential candidate, Peter Obi, will defeat his counterparts, Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar of the All Progressive Congress and Peoples Democratic Party, in the 2023 election.
Utomi said Nigerians are tired of old politicians who do not work for them.
He added that young people would vote for Obi because they are tired of the old system and wants something different.
The political economist stated this while speaking on Channels television programme, The Politics Today.
He said, “People have had enough of the politics that does not work for them. Politics that does not favour them. They are tired of these politicians. They are fed up of the old political order. The young people are revolting against the order that does not work for them.
“Life is increasingly meaningless to them and that’s why they will vote for Peter Obi. Nigerians want something different. They want a government of the people, by the people and for the people.
Speaking on LP structures, Utomi said: “The structures of these (APC, PDP and others) is stealing people’s money and using it to fund thugs.
“Labour Party is people oriented. These ongoing rallies are people sponsored/oriented. Labour Party did not contribute shishi to it.
“This tells you that Nigerians are tired of the old order.”
