Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, the Vice-Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the 2023 elections has stated that the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi is a big threat to the PDP's chances of winning power in 2023.

In an exclusive interview with the Daily Independent newspaper, Okowa stated that Peter Obi has become a very strong force in the presidential race and he has a stronghold in the country's Southeastern region.

According to Okowa, Peter Obi who is the former governor of Anambra state in the southeast region is likely to get massive votes from the region.

It is also interesting to note that Okowa, who is the Governor of Delta state comes from the south-south region, whose population is no match for the southeastern region.

Okowa said: “In the southeast, it will definitely be an issue for us because of the sentiments that are coming; but I know that the PDP has a strong root in the southeast and I know the contest in the southeast will be between the PDP and the Labour Party.

“We will wish that he (Peter Obi) is not in the race but since he is in the race, it will be a competition between two parties in the southeast, not the APC but the PDP and Labour Party.”
