As the general elections in 2023 approach, political rhetoric, remarks, opinions, assaults, and defenses are becoming more and more common. Of course, the fact that the electorate is engaged in politics, as opposed to other electioneering times, is a positive indicator.
Pastor Reno Omokri, a former aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan, stated on Sunday that the former governor of Anambra state is an excellent candidate for the 2023 presidential election after accusing Peter Obi’s supporters of threatening his life. Peter Obi is the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP.
Through his verified Twitter account, Reno said this. He claimed that Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s candidate, is better than Obi, despite Obi being a great contender.
He advised people to back anyone they wished while still showing respect for one another.
He said ;
“I love Obidients, because they love #RenosNuggets. But I am voting for Atiku Abubakar. It does not mean Peter Obi is not an excellent candidate. He is.
“Just that Atiku is a better candidate in my opinion. We can all support who we want and still respect each other.”
Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State for Labor and Employment, stated that Obi has more experience in leadership than Atiku, the former vice president, in an interview with ChannelsTv.
He claimed that in terms of decision-making ability, Mr. Peter Obi is “ahead of him (Mr. Atiku).” So how are we going to hand over the reins of the nation to someone who has never held a position and has never demonstrated the ability to make important decisions? Atiku Abubakar hasn’t been scrutinized and isn’t trusted. Even Obi has occupied a position higher than his before.
“The major competitor we face today has never held a position of executive authority in a position of authority. Therefore, we cannot speculate because Atiku Abubakar never had an executive post where he had the last say; he was never a governor, chief executive, or anything else. Atiku Abubakar is already behind Peter Obi.”
