I am more qualified than APC’s presidential candidate – Peter Obi

Published

on

The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, says he is more qualified than Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

He made the declaration in an interview with Vanguard, while responding to a statement made by Tinubu’s running mate, Kashim Shettima.

The APC vice presidential candidate had earlier said Obi doesn’t have what it takes to govern Nigeria, adding that that he can only be president of Igboland.

In response, the former Anambra governor said; “I’ve heard all sorts of things from people and some are statements that should not be made by people who are in leadership position. One of the presidential candidates once said a section of the country will not vote for me and now another one. Such statements, for me, debases the polity and questions the unity and the love we should have for each other.

INEC has stated the qualifications for contesting the elections which I’m sure I’ve fulfilled and I do not know the special qualification his principal, the APC candidate, possesses that I do not possess and I think I’m more qualified than his principal for that office. Is it age qualification? Is it education? Is it in terms of being an entrepreneur? I believe that anybody can be more qualified than me. But I’m qualified.”
