Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the 2023 general election Mr Peter Obi is more competent than other presidential candidates.
This is the view of former education minister Oby Ezekwesili. She spoke on in a programme hosted by Channels Television on Sunday.
According to her, “If somebody tells you to case votes between the possible presidents that include the three frontrunners that we currently have – a possible president Tinubu, Atiku, and Obi, do you need anybody to tell you where you would be going? It would be an Obi.
“Regardless that he comes from that particular political class that we are talking about, he still at least represents many more shapes than the other two top candidates.
“We have not seen an amalgam of people with the requisite skills of leadership. Skills of leadership are not ad hoc, they’re not things that happen by virtue of somebody thinking ‘I could be a leader’.
“Those attributes of competence, of character, of capacity – there is a deliberateness behind it that then enables people to mobilise the kind of action that is necessary to deliver.”
She commended the youth support for Obi, adding that the tide would ‘deeply evaluate the kind of leader to be elected’.
