Indications emerged that it's not going to be an easy run for Peter Obi after his defection to the Labour Party.

The former governor of Anambra Peter Obi and professor of political economy Pat Utomi are poised to run for the Labour Party's presidential ticket (LP).

The party's national convention will take place on Monday in Asaba, Delta's capital.

Obi and Utomi, according to a party source, are the party's two top presidential candidates.

Obi, a presidential candidate, joined the Liberal Party on Friday, just hours after resigning from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Utomi, the co-convener of the National Consultative Front (NCFront), is one of the stakeholders raising awareness about the need for a third force to disrupt the country's two-party domination.

Professor Pat Utomi already has a foothold on the party prior to Peter Obi's arrival. It is now most likely to be a tough run.
