2023: Peter Obi does not have the experience to run Nigeria- Governor Okowa

Social sharing

Delta State Governor and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Vice Presidential Candidate, Ifeanyi Okowa, has said that the Presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi, is not good enough to lead Nigeria as he doesn’t have the requisite experience to be President.

Okowa shared this thought during an interview with BBC Pidgin English.

” 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 the (PDP). You know he was in APGA before, from APGA he came to PDP. It hasn’t 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.

His (Obi )previous experience is not enough for this one (Presidency), It will be hard.

His experience is not deep enough. Even as a current governor ruling in a time of crisis, I know how hard it is. I even want to learn under Atiku because he has the experience with the Federal government. The thing is not easy. For them to have handled the economy at that time and made it something better, offering hope, creating jobs and filtering the society, was not easy because it’s a bigger thing.

So someone is supposed to learn through that. If you look at Obi experience you’ll know it’s small” He said.
