A former Minister of Transportation, Ebenezer Babatope, on Monday, said the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi can not win the 2023 presidential election.
According to Babatope, the forthcoming election would be between the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He further stated that Obi can not claim to have the support of the Labour movement in their quest to take over power in 2023.
The former Governor of Anambra State would be hoping to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari.
