Shettima: Obi Has Nothing to Offer But Questionable Statistics

 “We’re going to go through some rough waters in the coming months and years. This is why leadership is very crucial,” he said.

Senator Kashim Shettima, Vice-Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has stated that the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, has nothing to offer other than dubious statistics.

Shettima made the announcement on Thursday in Abuja at an APC Professionals Forum event titled:“Dissecting the Asiwaju Manifesto”.
He said the trajectory of the world facing Africa and Nigeria would make or mar the 2023transition, adding that, if Nigeria failed, the black man has failed.
According to him, while he was an incurable optimist, he was also a realist, saying the nation  could not shield itself from the global realities and from the challenges in Ukraine.
“We’re going to go through some rough waters in the coming months and years. This is why leadership is very crucial. 2023 will be a watershed election in the history of this country.

“What are the options available? Our political space is filled with a lot of very careful snails. We have to provoke conversation without descending so low to engage in malicious concoction or dubious aspersions on personalities.
“So what are the options available? I don’t want to mention the whole incident, I will respect our convener. He is an elder statesman that I hold in the highest esteem, I will not question his nationality. No!

“He is a bonafide Nigerian. Peter “Gringori” Obi is my friend but “Gringori” has absolutely nothing to offer apart from dubious statistics. So, the choice before us, there is a difference between daylight and darkness.”

Aisha Buhari, the first lady, stated that after reading Tinubu’s manifesto, she had no doubt that “we would be in safe hands” given his experience in governance and desire to make a positive impact on national development.

Mrs. Buhari, in turn, emphasized that national security was a prerequisite for economic and social development, emphasizing that no nation could progress in the absence of peace, which is why the Constitution was emphatic that the primary responsibility of government was to protect lives and property.
