Former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has distanced himself from a poster with his picture as the presidential flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in the forthcoming presidential election in 2023.
Obi was the vice presidential candidate to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar (under the PDP) in the 2019 presidential election.
The election was won by President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
Obi, in a tweet on Saturday, said that he had no hand in the flier fielding him and former Governor of Kano state, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, as Presidential and Vice Presidential Candidates.
“I am not a part of the poster being circulated. -PO,” he tweeted.
The poster design stated it was powered by one ‘Equity Group’.
The Twitter reactions trailing Obi’s post were calling on him to go for the presidential ticket.
The PDP is yet to react to the development as at the time of this report.

How I wish you are.
Please don’t break my heart.
You must contest this presidential election in 2023.
Sir, Kwankwaso is a good running mate. Go for it. It’s your time.
You can’t be anybody’s running mate again.

If you like be part of it, if you like don’t be part of it. All I know is not wrong for people to ask you to be our president. We know you and we have tested you and soon I will be leading Nigerian youth all over the globe to support you to be our next president. U. Ikwuka
