Peter Obi may be President in 2027 or 2031, not 2023 – Babangida Aliyu
Former Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu believes that Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi may not be elected as President by Nigerians in 2023.
Mr Aliyu made the remarks during his interview on Channels TV “Political Paradigm”.
Aliyu claimed that many people within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were rooting for him and expected him to be the Vice President to Atiku Abubakar.
Obi is the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party for the 2023 elections.
“Peter Obi is my good friend and a former member of my former Governors forum,” Aliyu said.
“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.”
