Former Niger State Governor, Babangida Aliyu believes Nigerians may not be ready to elect Peter Obi – the only Igbo man remaining after various well calculated party primaries to oust Igbos from the presidency; as President in 2023.
Evan the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide recently had to admit they had been betrayed by the two major political parties
Peter Obi who was smart to see the end immediately left the PDP for Labour Party.
According to Babangida Aliyu, while on on Channels Television’s Political Paradigm, many people in the Peoples Democratic Party had been rooting for Obi to be the Vice President to Atiku Abubakar.
Obi is the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party for the 2023 elections.
“Peter Obi is my good friend and a former member of my former Governors forum,” Aliyu said.
“A very excellent person. His candidature, in terms of the Presidency, – I think he will make some name now. But he may be able to make it only in 2027, 2031. But 2023? Too early.
“Even though the young people might go for him, the name is not dropping everywhere else. I doubt if Nigerians are ready for him now as a presidential person.
“I would have loved him as a Vice President. Many of us were rooting for him to be Vice President to Atiku again.”
