(Video) If Peter Obi was better, Nigerians would have voted for him – Nyesom Wike

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has said if the presidential flag bearer of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, was a better candidate, Nigerians would have voted him in the February 25, 2023 poll.

Wike stated this in an interview with Channels Television on Wednesday, August 30, when asked to speak on the economic hardship being experienced by Nigerians since the assumption of office of the new administration. He said that he has never seen a country where the citizens expect magic, adding that people should be patient.

When asked whether Obi would have handled the major issues confronting the Nigerian economy better than Tinubu if he had been elected, Wike said he doesn’t discuss presidential candidates any longer.

“I don’t want to discuss social media issue,” the FCT minister said. “I don’t discuss about presidential candidate any longer; I discuss about the economy, the President, what he has to offer. If he (Obi) would have been better, Nigerians would have voted for him.” he said.
