Why Nigerians didn’t vote for Peter Obi – Wike

Nyesom Wike, the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has said if the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, were a better choice, Nigerians would have voted for him during the 2023 general election.

Wike made this submission during an interview with Channels TV on Wednesday, August 30.

The minister said he supported President Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the expense of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, the standard bearer of his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the poll.

Asked whether Obi would have handled the significant issues confronting the Nigerian economy better than Tinubu if he had been elected, Wike said he no longer discusses presidential candidates.

“I don’t want to discuss social media issues,” the FCT minister 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,” he added.
