Tinubu has capacity more than Peter Obi – Doyin Okupe

Doyin Okupe, Director-General of the Peter Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Organisation in 2023, says President Bola Tinubu was the best among all presidential candidates who contested the 2023 election.

In an interview with Channels TV on Friday night, Mr Okupe said, “Let me tell you, of all the people who ran for president in 2023, by the benefit of hindsight, Bola Tinubu is the best.”

Lauding Mr Tinubu for his great job as former governor of Lagos, Mr Okupe dismissed his candidate in 2023, Mr Obi, and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party as inferior to Mr Tinubu in terms of knowledge and capacity.  

“From benefit of hindsight, I’ve seen Peter Obi, I’ve worked with Atiku Abubakar. I knew Bola Tinubu long time ago. But in terms of capacity, capability, knowledge, and commitment, you know, people keep underestimating what he did in Lagos. He did a wonderful job,” Mr Okupe said.

He added that one year is too quick to assess the performance of Mr Tinubu in office, urging Nigerians to give the president a chance to make the country better.

Mr Okupe resigned from his role with Mr Obi’s team shortly after the 2023 election, citing ideological differences.
