2023 ‘too early’ for Peter Obi to become president – Babangida Aliyu
Former Niger State Governor, Babangida Aliyu, believes 2023 is ‘too early’ for Labour Party, presidential candidate, Peter Obi to become president of Nigeria.
Babangida said Obi may become president In 2027 or 2031, but 2023 ‘Too Early’ as Nigerians may not be ready to elect the former Anambra State governor as President in next year election.
He stated this while speaking on Channels Television’s Political Paradigm.
According to him, many people in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, had been rooting for Obi to be the Vice President to Atiku Abubakar.
He said; “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.”
