2023: PDP founding member Nwosu opens up on working for Obi

A founding member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and erstwhile member of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT), Professor Alphonsus B.C Nwosu, has said he didn’t resign from the party because of Peter Obi.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that there are insinuations in some quarters that Nwosu left the PDP because he has been very vocal about the South East producing the next president of Nigeria and because of his alleged support for Obi, presidential flag-bearer of the Labour Party for the 2023 election. But Nwosu played down that notion.

“Obi knows that I don’t work for him,” Prof. Nwosu told Sun News in an interview published on Friday.

“He knows that no one can make me do what I don’t want to do as a person. It just happens to be that we have the same objectives for a better Nigeria. We want Nigeria to do well. That was also what attracted me to Atiku Abubakar, because of his sincerity on restructuring.

“I have a very good relationship with Atiku and went to his house to offer to work for him in 2019 because I wanted the misgovernance of the APC to terminate under one term. But everyone who knows me knows that you can never hold my soul; my soul is held by my creator.”

He added: “I didn’t leave because of Obi. I left because I cannot accept that you can make an agreement and bend it. It runs against my soul and I wanted to recover myself. No matter what anyone says, I am happy and I won’t quarrel with anyone who expresses any opinion on this matter, especially any Igbo person.”
