The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, on Tuesday stated why the All Progressives Congress should have presented Vice President Yemi Osinbajo as its standard bearer.
Obi said this while discussing with guests at the London home of Peoples Democratic Party chieftain, Dele Momodu, on the occasion of the latter’s birthday on Tuesday.
Momodu shared a video of Obi and the guests on his Instagram page on Wednesday.
In the video, Obi said, “I’m desperate to see Nigeria work. I don’t hide it any day, any time. I even confronted APC if you want it to work, why didn’t you bring Osinbajo? Let’s have the place working for everybody so that we can have people who want to work for the country and are healthy and good”.
“The person they brought out today, It’s not as if he cannot do it… 20 years ago, maybe, because the country needs someone that’s 24 hours working.”
It would be also recalled that former Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, recently claimed that Nigeria is worse off for not having Osinbajo as the President of the country.
“And I dare say, we all agree that Nigeria is worse off for not having someone like him (Osinbajo) as president, but I do hope that he will be available to serve and to advise and to put in his best for the country and continue to do”, Lamido said.
Premium Politics reported that Osinbajo lost in the primary election to former Lagos governor, Bola Tinubu who won the ticket and also went on to become win the 2023 presidential election.
