Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo has expressed his strong belief that Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the presidential election held on February 25, continues to be the candidate for a better Nigeria.
According to reports, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Bola Tinubu, who was the candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress at the time, as the winner of the election.
However, this announcement was followed by legal challenges from opposition parties and their candidates, including the Labour Party and Peter Obi, who contested the validity of the electoral process that resulted in Tinubu’s victory.
During a recent conversation with media personality Chude Jideonwo, former president Obasanjo emphasized his belief that despite President Tinubu being declared as the winner of the last election, Obi is still the candidate that the country requires.
He said, “For the Nigeria that I believe we need to have at this point in time, Peter Obi is still the best candidate.”
When reflecting on his most profound impact, the ex-president expressed, “My greatest legacy lies in the fact that I arrived on this earthly realm, where God’s boundless kindness was bestowed upon me, and His grace illuminated my path.”
