Delta State Governor and the Running mate of PDP Flagbearer, Ifeanyi Okowa has declared that the Labour Party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, does not have the needed experience to lead Nigeria.
Okowa, who admitted that Obi has experience from being a former governor of Anambra, added that it is not “deep” enough to lead Nigeria.
The vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) spoke in an interview with BBC pidgin.
Okowa said, “I did not say he won’t have any votes, he will have. But what I’m saying is that he’s not a new candidate. It has not been long since he left PDP. You know he was in APGA before, from APGA he came to PDP. It has not been long since he left (PDP), so he cannot say anything about PDP because that’s where he was before.”
“Some of us are still here. At every party, there are good people and bad people. But today’s Nigeria is very troubled and we need the right person. That is why I am appealing to our youths to be wise and vote well, they should not be blinded by the concept of a false change because that is how they raved on Jonathan in 2015.
