The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has been described as one of the best material to become president and a very decent man.
The statement was made known by a former Ambassador and Foreign Affairs Minister, Aminu Wali, HausaToday learned.
According to the founding father of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi’s tribe, unfortunately, will work against him.
He told The Sun: “Unfortunately, where he is coming from, we have a problem. If they the leadership of the Igbo cannot contain this IPOB and the rascal called Kanu, how can I take my fate and give it to somebody from there?
“Well, I can’t take my fate and my people’s fate and give it to people that cannot be able to put their house in order.”
He, however, added that if the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) can be contained, Igbos can be supported to emerge president.
“Now, in every single state, the IPOB has more control…, it is just as you say in Sokoto or Zamfara, Katsina and a bit of Kaduna… in every of the five states of the Southeast, who calls the shots?” Wali asked.
“And once you have an active secessionist tendency in any part of Nigeria, you cannot afford to now allow a leeway for those people to succeed in the succession. Nobody is saying you cannot.
“If you follow the constitutional way of dissolution of the country, nobody can fight you because it is there in the constitution. Follow the constitution, down to a referemdum. Fine.”
