Merger: You can’t win 2027 presidential election without Obidients – Sam Amadi warns Obi

A lawyer and public affairs analyst, Sam Amadi has sent a warning to Presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, not to consider leaving the LP.

In a message posted via his Twitter account on Tuesday, Amadi said the former Anambra governor can’t win the 2027 presidential elections without his loyal supporters known as Obidients.

He stated this amid a possible merger or alliance with the 2023 Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar and chieftains of the PDP.

Amadi wrote: “NB: you cannot win 2027 presidential election without the unalloyed support of the ObiDients. The ObiDients are all those who are angry against the status quo and want a change. It’s either @OfficialAPCNg remains or that change. APC lite cannot win against APC. It’s not 2015.”

Recall that on Monday, Peter Obi met with former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, in his residence in Abuja, stirring talks of a possible merger ahead of the 2027 polls.

In a separate meeting, the LP flagbearer also met with ex-Senate President, Bukola Saraki and former Foreign Affairs Minister, Ibrahim Lamido.

However, the Labour Party clarified in a statement that the meetings were aimed at rescuing Nigerians from their current sufferings.
