Businessman and politician Peter Obi was governor of Anambra from March to November 2006, February to May 2007, and June 2007 to March 2014. After leaving the Peoples Democratic Party in May 2022, he became the Labour Party’s 2023 presidential candidate.

Obi graduated from the University of Nigeria in 1984. He worked as a bank executive afterward.

Obi was ousted following the 2007 Anambra State governorship election, but the judges once more stepped in and decided he should be let to serve his whole four-year term. He won reelection to a second term in 2010

Lagos State, home to Africa’s largest city, voted for Nigerian presidential contender Peter Obi.

On Sunday, Nigeria’s electoral commission began reporting state-by-state results in the national elections. Still, it won’t announce a winner in the contest to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari for many days.

On Monday, electoral commission statistics indicated that Labour Party candidate Obi received 582,454 votes, barely ahead of former Lagos governor Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress party, who received 572,606. Lagos was Tinubu’s base.

The PDP’s Atiku Abubakar received 75,750 votes.

Obi’s campaign urged voters to reject the two parties that have ruled Africa’s most populous nation for 25 years, whose corruption and insecurity have expanded.

He won the Jagaban of Lagos, popularly known as the “City boy.”

Youth, especially urban, somewhat educated voters with cell phones and social media, liked him most.

However, he struggles in rural locations with less sophisticated audiences.
