How Osinbajo Could Have Been A Better APC Candidate- Obi

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 presidential election, Peter Obi, says the All Progressives Congress, APC, would have succeeded in its agenda to move Nigeria forward if it had chosen Vice President Yemi Osinbajo as its candidate.

Obi made this statement while exchanging pleasantries with some guests at the 63rd birth anniversary of Dele Momodu in London today.

The former Anambra State governor in a viral video said he had earlier challenged the leadership of APC that if they wanted Nigeria to work as a progressive country, they should have just given Osinbajo the party’s presidential ticket.

Obi is desperate to see Nigeria work

In the video, 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.”

Obi is challenging the victory of APC’s Bola Tinubu as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission. Obi, who came third in the 25th of February election, filed his petition to challenge the outcome of the poll at the Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja around midnight on Tuesday, 21st of March, 2023.

Obi’s petition at the tribunal

The Labour Party candidate argues that the election was characterised by various irregularities including the non-qualification of Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima, to contest the election. Also, he claims that the election was conducted in substantial non-compliance with the provision of the law.

Following the resumption of the sitting today, the court adjourned the pre-hearing of Obi’s petition against Tinubu to the 19th of May, 2023. The court headed by Justice Haruna Tsammani adjourned the hearing because of the failure of parties in the petition to agree on documents among other reasons.
