Celebrity businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu well known as Obi Cubana could not hide his feelings on Monday when LindaIkeji blog published some statements made by the Delta State Governor and the Peoples Democratic Party running mate to Atiku Abubakar in the forthcoming 2023 presidential election, Ifeanyi Okowa who said, the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi lacks the needed experience to govern Nigeria because of the country’s current complex nature and problems.
Governor Ifeanyi Okowa had stated this during BBC Pidgin English interview as transcribed and reported by LindaIkeji blog on its Instagram page.
The report reads thus:
Delta state governor and PDP Vice President candidate, Ifeanyi Okowa, has said that the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, is not good enough to lead Nigeria as he doesn’t have the requisite experience to be a President.
Okowa shared this thought during an interview with BBC Pidgin English.
“I did not say he won’t have any votes, he will have. But what I’m saying is that he’s not a new candidate. It has not been long since he left PDP. You know he was in APGA before, from APGA he came to PDP. It hasn’t been long since he left (PDP) so he cannot say anything about PDP because that’s where he was before.
“Some of us are still here. At every party, there are good people and bad people. But today’s Nigeria is very troubled and we need the right person. That is why I am appealing to our youths to be wise and vote well, they should not be blinded by the concept of a false change because that is how they raved on Jonathan in 2015.
His (Obi) previous experience is not enough for this one (presidency), it will be hard. His experience is not deep enough.
Even as a current governor ruling in a time of crisis, I know how hard it is. I even want to learn under Atiku because he has experience with the federal government. The thing is not easy.
For them to have handled the economy at that time and made it something better, offering hope, creating jobs, and filtering the society, was not easy because it’s a bigger thing.
So someone is supposed to learn through that. If you look at Obi’s experience you’ll know it’s small.”he said
Shortly after the publication, an Instagram user, by name, Sara Obuks said: “Okowa way damage Delta State. Warri don’t have one good road. Everything don spoiled”
Obi Cubana added his contribution with emojis, full of laughter.
Many Instagram users believed to be Nigerians took the comment section of Obi Cubana posted comment to join the celebrity business man with more laugh emojis and expression of condemnation of the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa.
