The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has shaded the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu by declaring that the presidency is not anybody’s turn.
Recall that Tinubu had famously used the word ’emi lokan’ meaning I am the next, in the build up to the presidential primary election of his party.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that Obi had on Monday during the Labour Party Leadership Retreat called on Nigerians to give his candidacy a chance to turn things around.
In his words, “We will do this retreat now, after election we will do another one, election next year will not be based on ethnicity, we have had it before, it would not be on religion.
“There is no place that Christians buy things cheaper, there is no place that Muslims buy things cheaper. It will not be by my turn, it is nobody’s turn. It must not be by connection. Election next year must be based on character and trust, it must be based on competence.”
