2023: VP Candidate Baba-Ahmed Fights Okowa For Downplaying Peter Obi’s Experience

OduNews reports that Okowa, who is the running mate of the Peoples Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, said Obi lacks enough experience needed to paddle the affairs of the country and as such cannot perform well as Nigeria’s president.

“His (Obi) previous experience is not enough for this one (presidency). It will be hard. His experience is not deep enough,” the Delta governor had said.

Reacting to Okowa’s comment on Monday night, Baba-Ahmed said Obi is the most qualified among the candidates of the four leading candidates vying for the presidency.

“That is absolutely untrue. In fact, I beg you to show me anyone who has had more leadership experience in the contest. By that contest, I mean the candidates that we have — the four leading candidates,” he said.

“I fail to see anyone who even comes close to his excellency, Peter Obi. The is now at the stage where we need private sector experience and among all of them, no one has much private sector business sense, prudence, frugality, ability to manage persons, communities, and interest groups. None of the other three has as much.

“That comment is a very unfair comment, and I will like to think that very soon, the maker of that comment will have to retract because it shows that he has no idea about what capacity is.

“Apparently, we were in the senate together. We used to sit not too far away. I have a lot of respect for him, but I least expect him to misread what capacity is. When you speak of capacity, you are talking of people like Peter Obi and with all modesty, my humble self.”
