Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 election, claimed on Wednesday that the APC would have been more successful in advancing Nigeria if it had chosen Vice President Yemi Osinbajo as its candidate.
While greeting some attendees at Dele Momodu’s 63rd birthday celebration in London, Obi stated this.
In a trending 52-second video, the former Anambra State governor said he had one time confronted the leadership of APC that if they wanted Nigeria to work as a progressive country, they should have just given Osinbajo the party’s presidential ticket.
He said, “I am desperate to see Nigeria working, I can’t hide it. I even confronted them if you want it, why didn’t you bring Osinbajo so that we can have people who want to work for the country?
“Nigeria needs a healthy person and someone like him working 24 hours. Let’s have the place working for everyone,” he added.
Recall that Obi had filed a petition to challenge the victory of APC’s Bola Tinubu as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Obi, who came third in the election, filed his petition to challenge the outcome of the poll at the Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja around midnight on Tuesday, March 21, 2023.
He claimed that a number of anomalies occurred during the election, including Kashim Shettima and Tinubu’s disqualification from running as candidates.
He further claimed that Tinubu fell short of winning the majority of the legitimate votes cast in the poll, just as he was unable to win one-fourth of the legitimate votes cast in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
