As the country inches closer to the 2023 presidential election, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has declared that he would have picked the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi as Nigeria’s next president if he were God.
He spoke in Makurdi, the capital of Benue while visiting flood victims in the state.
Describing the Labour Party Presidential candidate as the finest option for the country, Governor Ortom said Obi has what it takes to liberate Nigeria from its economic and security woes.
According to him: “If Nigeria needs to make a choice, Obi is one of the finest candidates that we have in this country. In terms of education, in terms of character, in terms of performance, in terms of reaching out, in terms of being a pan-Nigerian, in terms of industrialisation, and passion to ensure that our country is liberated from where we are, out of insecurity to security, and out of economic woes to economic vibrancy and out of lack to adequate social life, you (Obi) have the capacity to make things work.”
Praising Obi’s antecedents as a man of capacity, Ortom avowed that nobody can stop “whoever God wanted as the country’s next president.”
