“Peter Obi can only become a President in Igboland”- Kashim Shettima
Shettima has been unveiled as the running mate of APC’s Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The vice presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Kashim Shettima, has berated the chances of Labour Party’s Peter Obi becoming president of Nigeria in the 2023 presidential elections.
In an interview on Channels TV, Shettima opined that the former Anambra State governor lacks the structure to win a presidential election in Nigeria.
“The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi has no political base and structure to win the next coming election in 2023. As far as I am concerned he’s politically structure-less with little or no experience to lead this country,’’ the former Borno State governor said.
“Nigeria requires a technocrat and a sound Administrator who will continue from where President Muhammadu Buhari stopped not someone who will come to take us back in the era of PDP. Nigerians don’t want that.
“Our Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the right person needed for this position in a time like this. He’s a unifier, an administrator, a technocrat name it. That is why Nigerians both old and young are rallying round him to ensure that he wins the forth coming election.
Shettima believes Peter Obi has a stronghold on South-Eastern Nigeria and can become president of just the region.
“Presidential position is not for the unprepared neither is it an all comers affairs. Peter Obi can only become a President in Igboland but definitely not in Nigeria. Nigeria is too big for him to handle. He has no leadership ideology nor experiences like President Muhammadu and our incoming President in the person of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,’’ Shettima opined.
