A chieftain of the Labour Party (LP) and a Nollywood actor, Kenneth Okonkwo, has said that he is not sure if the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, is still in the 2023 presidential race. 

Okonkwo stated this while discussing the chances of the LP presidential candidate, Peter Obi, in the forthcoming election on Channels TV’s Politics Today .

Okonkwo, who said Obi is the only option in the 2023 presidential candidate, said Atiku is not uniter, as he claimed.

He said, “First of all, Atiku Abubakar, I wonder if he is still contesting, because he would have been an honourable man if he had stepped down. The only manifesto he had coming into this election is that he is a unifier. I told you I am not interesting in an unworkable political manifesto.

“What is happening in PDP? The entire south has been cut off from PDP. Presidential candidate, North; DG campaign, North; and national chairman, North. When the South cried, they gave them acting BoT chairman. They are told they are children and should be sucking their mothers’ breasts not talking about certain position in PDP.”
