The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has claimed that Nigerians would have voted for Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, during the February 25, 2023 general election, if he was a better candidate.
Wike spoke on Wednesday while featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme.
The ex-Governor of Rivers State said he supported President Bola Tinubu, the then presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, at the expense of Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the keenly contested poll.
Wike claimed he doesn’t discuss presidential candidates any longer.
However, he said, “I don’t discuss presidential candidates any longer; I discuss the economy, the president, what he has to offer.
“If he (Obi) would have been better, Nigerians would have voted for him.”
