Video: Peter Obi knows he can’t win – BBNaija star, Cross
Brother Naija 2021 finalist, Cross Okonkwo has openly thrown a question regarding the presidential ambition of Labour Party’s candidate, Peter Obi.
Speaking during Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Youth World Outreach, Cross accused Obi of being selfish by contesting to be president.
He asserted that the former governor of Anambra state knows that he cannot win the 2023 election, hence his reason for wondering why Obi is being selfish by refusing to step down for the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The Reality TV star asked; “Why is Peter Obi a bit selfish? Why is he being selfish when he knws he cannot win this election?”

Meanwhile, the LP standard bearer, Peter Obi earlier urged Nigerians to sack him from office if he is elected in the upcoming election and fails to perform.
Obi, who spoke at the Support Group Conveners Conference in Abuja, said he and his running mate, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed will steer the country in the right direction but if the people think they’re being taken in the wrong direction, they are free to vote them out.
The former Anambra governor cautioned against voting for politicians who impoverished 95 million Nigerians.
He asked the people to reject the old political order and take ownership of the country.
Obi assured the citizens that “We can make Nigeria work,” and stressed the need for the people to demand accountability from public officeholders to stem the tide of corruption.
He said: “Myself and my running mate, Dr. Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, As drivers whose duty will be to take Nigeria to a destination of peace, unity and progress if elected as president and vice-president respectively in the coming February, 25th general elections, ‘sack’ me and my running mate, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed whenever we are found to be taking Nigerians in the opposite direction.
“All our country has produced in the last ten years is poverty. In 2012, the number of Nigerians who are poor was about 65 million. Today, it is about 95 million. And those who caused it are asking to be given more years. To do what?”.
