"Peter Obi cannot become President of Nigeria; he can only do so in Igboland." - Shettima

“Peter Obi can only become President in Igboland, not in Nigeria” – Shettima

Peter Obi can only become president in Igboland, not in Nigeria, according to Kashim Shettima, the APC’s vice presidential candidate.

This was stated by Shettima, a former governor of Borno state, in an interview that aired on Channels TV Politics Today on Friday, July 15.

He claims that Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s nominee for president, lacks the organization, knowledge, and ability to rule Nigeria effectively.
His remarks,

“Mr. Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, lacks the political infrastructure necessary to prevail in the next 2023 election. I don’t think he has the political structure or expertise to be president of this country.
“Nigeria needs a technocrat and an experienced leader who would carry on from where President Muhammadu Buhari left off, not someone who will return us to the PDP period. That is not what Nigerians desire.

“In this situation, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, our candidate, is the ideal candidate for the job. He is an administrator, a unifier, a technocrat, etc. Because of this, Nigerians of all ages are supporting him to make sure he wins the upcoming election. A presidential office is not for the unprepared or open to everyone. Peter Obi can only be president of Igboland; he cannot be president of Nigeria. He cannot manage Nigeria because it is too large. He lacks the leadership philosophy and life experiences of President Muhammadu and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, our upcoming president.”
