It’s too early for Peter Obi to become President – Babangida



Peter Obi - Babangida

Babangida thinks Peter Obi Labour Party (LP) Presidential Candidate’s ambition to emerge Nigeria president in 2023 is too early. He added that the flagbearer of the party will not win the Presidential elections.


To defend his position, Aliyu Babangida said “the name is not dropping everywhere else.”


The erstwhile governor of Niger State argued that while younger people in the country may vote for Peter Obi  and cause him to make his mark in the polls, the former Anambra State Governor may have to wait till like 2027 or 2031 before he can become the President of Nigeria.

Babangida shared his view on Channels Television’s programme “Political Paradigm”.

He revealed further that many would have loved Obi to be the running mate to Atiku Abubakar, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).


“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.”
