This online news outlet reports that Aliyu stated that Peter Obi should wait till 2027 or 2031 to become President of Nigeria since 2023 is too soon.
If he had stayed with the Peoples Democratic Party, Obi would have been Atiku Abubakar’s running partner, according to the former governor, who was featured on Channels Television’s Political Paradigm (PDP).
Touchaheart Nigeria reports that Babangida said: “Peter Obi is my good friend and a former member of my former Governors Forum.
“A very excellent person. His candidature, in terms of the Presidency, – I think he will make some name now. But he may be able to make it only in 2027, 2031. But 2023? Too early.
“Even though the young people might go for him, the name is not dropping everywhere else. I doubt if Nigerians are ready for him now as a presidential candidate.
“I would have loved him as a Vice President. Many of us were rooting for him to be running mate to Atiku again.”
