The former Niger State Governor, Babangida Aliyu, has said that Nigerians are not ready to elect the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, as President in the forthcoming 2023 presidential election.
Aliyu made this statement on Channels Television’s Political Paradigm where he noted that Peter Obi may be qualified to be the president but Nigerians may not be ready for him.
According to him, though Peter Obi is liked by the youths, his chances in 2023 are not bright.

“Peter Obi is my good friend and a former member of my former Governors forum. 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.
“I would have loved him as a Vice President. Many of us were rooting for him to be Vice President to Atiku again.”
