Peter Obi’s Supporters Blasts Ned Nwoko Over Utterances That Peter Obi will do well as Minister of Economy
Some social media users have taken to their pages and comment sections to display disappointment over Ned Nwoko’s statement on Peter Obi’s candidacy in an interview with BBC Igbo.
Many awakened youths who have shown patriotism towards the pursuit for a workable Nigeria has blasted the billionaire Nwoko for belittling the peoples choice, nor likening it to a minister of economy.
Below is a narrative of Ned Nwoko’s statement followed by screenshots of a pay back in his own coin.
Delta-born politician, Ned Nwoko has shared his thoughts about former Governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi’s participation in the forthcoming presidential election under Labour Party’s platform.
The politician who is married to actress Regina Daniels, acknowledged that Peter Obi is not like other Governors he has met in the past as he’s quite frugal and a big-time capitalist.
Nwoko also stated in an interview with BBC Igbo, that he would like Peter Obi to come back to the Peoples Democratic Party as he will do well as a Minister of Economy and will also help the economy bounce back.
The Delta-born politician further averred that though Peter Obi is popular and might have a support base, he doesn’t have the structure to function as he would need the majority in either house of reps or senate, state house of assemblies and government.
He also said that all of these might take at least 8 years to be achieved. Nwoko further claimed there are many things that would work against the emergence of Peter Obi as President of Nigeria and “it would never happen”.
Nwoko also said that Igbos are not ready for presidency as that would have shown during the primaries. He also wondered why delegates never supported Igbo candidates, but went for candidates from other regions.
According to him, Igbos are largely selfish and won’t think about others. Nwoko added that he doesn’t subscribe to zoning, but believes in merit.
Recall, that youths of Nigeria has volunteered to drag Peter Obi should he withdraw from Presidential race, they said they are the ones running through Peter Obi.
