APC should have presented Osinbajo as presidential candidate – Obi

The Labour Party presidential candidate , Peter Obi, on Wednesday, said the All Progressives Congress would have succeeded in moving Nigeria forward if it had chosen Vice President Yemi Osinbajo as its candidate.

Obi said this on Tuesday while exchanging pleasantries with some guests at Dele Momodu’s 63rd birthday in London, England.

The former Anambra State governor, in a viral video, said he was desperate to witness a working Nigeria, adding that this compelled him to ask the question.

It would be recalled that Bola Tinubu, APC National Leader, defeated  former Transport Minister, Rotimi Amaechi and Yemi Osinbajo to secure the APC presidential ticket in the primaries.

He later emerged as President-elect defeating Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and Obi, his close rivals, on February 25 presidential polls.

Obi who has filed a petition challenging the outcome of the 2023 presidential election in court said Nigeria needs a healthy person.

Obi 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.
