The All Progressives Congress, APC vice presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima, has played the ethnic card by saying that the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate Peter Obi can only become president in Igbo land and not in Nigeria.
Appearing on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Friday, he also claimed that Obi lacked the requisite experience to rule Nigeria, even when his principal Bola Tinubu does not have a better experience. Both Obi and Tinubu were two-term governors.
He added that the LP’s presidential candidate lacked the structure and political base to win the 2023 election.
According to Shettima, Nigeria is too big for the former Anambra State governor to handle.
He said, “The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi has no political base and structure to win the next coming election in 2023. As far as I am concerned, he’s politically structureless with little or no experience to lead this country.
“Presidential position is not for the unprepared, neither is it an all comers affairs. Peter Obi can only become a President in Igbo land but definitely not in Nigeria. Nigeria is too big for him to handle.
“He has no leadership ideology nor experience like President Muhammadu and our incoming President in the person of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”
