Align With Tinubu Or Stand Alone, Ohaneze Tells Peter Obi

By Mohammed Bello Doka
In a surprising turn of events, a faction of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, a socio-cultural group representing the Igbo people in Nigeria, has advised Peter Obi, the former Vice Presidential candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), to consider standing independently or even partnering with President Bola Tinubu, rather than aligning with Atiku Abubakar or Rabiu Kwankwaso.

Expressing concerns over the future political trajectory of Peter Obi, Ohanaeze Ndigbo highlighted the need for him to carefully weigh his options, emphasizing that playing second fiddle could result in losing the support of Nigerians. Consequently, they urged Obi to pull out of ongoing alliance talks.

The faction specifically pointed out the uncharitable disposition and perceived desperation of Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate in the 2019 election. They expressed doubt that Atiku would ever support Peter Obi's bid to become a leader of the opposition, citing previous political experiences where Atiku's personal interests took precedence over other considerations.

While this advice may come as a surprise to some, it underscores the growing complexity of Nigeria's political landscape. Ohanaeze Ndigbo's suggestion for Obi to consider partnering with President Bola Tinubu, a prominent figure within the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), demonstrates the willingness of certain factions to explore unconventional alliances for the greater benefit of their interests.

As discussions surrounding potential alliances for the upcoming political seasons heat up, Peter Obi now finds himself at a crossroads. His decision will undoubtedly shape not only his political future but also his standing within the hearts and minds of the Nigerian people.

In light of this recent development, political analysts and observers are eagerly awaiting Obi's response. Will he heed Ohanaeze Ndigbo's advice and reconsider his options? Or will he choose to remain aligned with Atiku Abubakar or Rabiu Kwankwaso, despite the potential risks involved?

Only time will tell how this situation unfolds. As the nation watches, one thing is for certain: Peter Obi's decision carries significant weight, not only for himself but also for the future of Nigeria's political landscape.
