Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has said the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the February 25 presidential election, Peter Obi, is still the candidate for a better Nigeria.
DAILY POST reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, declared the then candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress and now-president, Bola Tinubu, as the winner of the election.
The announcement was tailed with legal suits from the opposition parties and their candidates, including LP and Obi, challenging the process that produced Tinubu as winner.
In a recent chat with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, former president Obasanjo insisted that despite President Tinubu being declared as the winner of the last election, Obi remains the candidate that the country needs.
He said, “For the Nigeria that I believe we need to have at this point in time, Peter Obi is still the best candidate.”
On what he considered his greatest legacy, the former president said, “That I came here [earth] and God was immeasurably kind to me and showed His grace on me.”
