Peter Obi's victory in Nasarawa State was a significant one, as he was able to overcome the strong competition from the APC and PDP. His party's success was attributed to his popularity among the people of the state, as well as the Labour Party's manifesto, which resonated with many voters.
In the election, the APC obtained a total of 172,922 votes, while the PDP scored 147,093 votes. Other parties such as the NNPP and APGA also participated in the election but secured fewer votes compared to the top three parties.
With this victory in Nasarawa State, Peter Obi and the Labour Party are well-positioned to compete in the national election and potentially secure the presidency. His victory in a state traditionally dominated by the APC and PDP also indicates a shift in political preferences and a growing desire for change among the electorate.
