Mukhtar Shagari, a former deputy governor of Sokoto State, has disclosed that the Labour Party approached him about running as Peter Obi’s vice president.

The FidelinfoNews gathered tha this was disclosed while speaking on Politics Today on Channels Television on Tuesday, Shagari claimed he turned down the chance because he didn’t think Obi had a chance to win in 2023.

“The Labour party contacted me and requested if I would like to be the Vice Presidential candidate to Peter Obi,” the PDP chieftain said.

“And I looked at the political scenario, what Labour party is, and decided that I cannot be the Vice Presidential candidate to Peter Obi.

“I do not see the path through which Peter Obi will win the election in this country.

“It is so clear that in areas in the South-East, and young people are shouting about him on social media – yes, it’s politics.

“But the truth of the matter is that there are two dominant parties in this country – APC and PDP. If you want to become President, I think you must belong to one of them.”

Shagari also said zoning is not a constitutional matter as it is not provided in the nation’s constitution.

“it’s purely a party affair,” he said.
