2023 election: Peter Obi reacts to Tinubu ‘disowning’ Osinbajo


Peter Obi, a former Governor of Anambra State and presidential aspirant in the 2023 election, on Tuesday said the competition between All Progressives Congress (APC) heavyweights, Bola Tinubu and Yemi Osinbajo, should not be paramount to Nigerians.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Obi said the social problem of kidnapping and its implications on the economic development of Nigeria should worry his compatriots.

This newspaper recalls that reacting to Osinbajo’s declaration to run for president, former governor of Lagos State and presidential aspirant, Bola Tinubu, on Monday, said Vice President Osinbajo is not his “son”.

“I don’t have any son grown up enough to make such declaration,” Tinubu had said.

Asked in an interview on Arise TV his take on the aspirations of Messrs Tinubu and Osinbajo, Obi, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said the 2023 election should be “issue-based”.

“Nigerians should now be concerned about the issues. This is not time for who is here or there; who is son or who is father. The thing is, we have a problem. People are not being kidnapped as one, two now, they are packing families. That should bother us,” he said.
