Emeka Ihedioha, a former governor of Imo State, has said the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, needs to work hard considering the popularity gained by Labour Party, LP, in the South East.
Many have ascribed the party’s popularity to its presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
The former lawmaker, who stated this when he appeared on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily, however, said his party would win in the forthcoming general elections.
He said, “For the PDP, South East has been the party’s dominated area and now we have Labour Party. That is why I am saying my party has to work very hard, and that is what we are about to do.”
The former lawmaker acknowledged that the Obi is having a growing support from the region.
“Like I said, Peter Obi is the man I respect and having good relationship with. I know he has a growing support base.
“We are going to the general elections that’s scheduled for February 2023 and we need time to penetrate,” he added.
