Peter Obi does not have the experience to run Nigeria – Governor Okowa

Delta state governor and PDP Vice Presidential candidate, Ifeanyi Okowa, has said that the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, is not good enough to lead Nigeria as he doesn’t have the requisite ‘experience’ to be a President.

Okowa shared this thought during an interview with BBC Pidgin. He said;

“I did not say he won’t have any votes, he will have. But what I’m saying is that he’s not a new candidate. It has not been long since he left PDP. You know he was in APGA before, from APGA he came to PDP. It hasn’t been long since he left (PDP) so he cannot say anything about PDP because that’s where he was before.

“Some of us are still here. At every party, there are good people and bad people. But today’s Nigeria is very troubled and we need the right person. That is why I am appealing to our youths to be wise and vote well, they should not be blinded by the concept of a false change because that is how they raved on Jonathan in 2015.

His (Obi) previous experience is not enough for this one (presidency), it will be hard. His experience is not deep enough. Even as a current governor ruling in a time of crisis, I know how hard it is. I even want to learn under Atiku because he has experience with the federal government.

The thing is not easy. For them to have handled the economy at that time and made it something better, offering hope, creating jobs, and filtering the society, was not easy because it’s a bigger thing. So someone is supposed to learn through that. If you look at Obi’s experience you’ll know it’s small.”he said

  1. What a hopeless and self-deceiving statement to make. Okowa is a failed Governor. A complete disaster. Throughout his tenure he has been struggling to pay workers’ salaries. He will cut, reinstate, and cut workers’ salaries at will. He is owing pensioners in his state. He is not even a fit candidate for VP as it would seem we are encouraging failure to promote such a person to the vice presidency. His tenure in Delta is nothing to write home about. He should go and learn from Peter Obi who never owed salaries or pension. For the avoidance of doubt, Peter Obi is eminently qualified not only to rule this country but to lead us (including the failed Okowa) out of the doldrums we find ourselves.
