Peter Okoye, the Nigerian singer, has argued that the 2023 polls are no longer about Peter Obi.


Earlier, Peter and his brother Paul Okoye joined the campaign team of Obi who is contesting for president under the Labour Party (LP).

In a tweet on Tuesday, Okoye said those backing Obi’s campaign are regular citizens frustrated by “corrupt politicians and state failure”.

The singer also claimed some “cabals” are calling on Obi to step down from the 2023 race.


He alleged that the “cabals” behind the call knew Obi was a “threat.”

“The power behind Peter Obi is the pains of millions of Nigerians who deserve a better life but were failed by the corrupt politicians! This is no longer about Peter Obi,” the singer wrote.

“This is about the millions of frustrated Nigerians/youths who want to take their anger to the ballot box.


“The cabals and beneficiaries of the corrupt state of Nigeria do not want to see it change.

“It does not matter whether they’re Igbo, Yoruba or Hausa, when it comes to ensuring power remains with them, they unite against Nigerians! Now that the youths are united, they are afraid.

“Why are they not advising Kwankwaso, Sowore, or any other politician to withdraw from the race? Why @PeterObi? They know he is a threat. Dear frustrated Nigerians, take your anger to the ballot come February 2023 and vote for @NgLabour @PeterObi, it’s Nigerians’ turn!”


Peter and Paul, who are a part of the music duo Psquare, are among a growing list of entertainers who have declared support for Obi ahead of the 2023 general election to hold in February.

Frederick Leonard and Zubby Micheal, the Nollywood actors, also backed Obi up for the presidency while Charly Boy, the veteran musician, endorsed him as his presidential candidate for 2023.

Others who have similarly declared their support are Mercy Eke and Tony Umez.

Obi is contesting against Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) among others.
