Peter Obi better than Atiku - Ezekwesili

A former Minister of Education Oby Ezekwesili says the Labour Party presidential candidate for the 2023 elections is a better option than the other two frontliners- Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party

She however noted that the trio are from the same political class.

Ezekwesili, in an interview with Channels TV Sunday night, said Nigerians are “served badly as a country in terms of political class,” while endorsing Mr Obi as a better candidate.

“Somebody says to you between a cast of possible presidents that include the three frontrunners that we currently have – a possible President Tinubu, Atiku, and Obi – do you need anybody to tell you where you would be going? It would be an Obi.

“Regardless of the fact that he comes from that particular political class that we are talking about, he still at least represents many more shapes than the other two top candidates (Atiku and Tinubu),” Mrs Ezekwesili said.

Obi, a former Anambra governor, has been punching above his political weight since acquiring the ticket of the Labour. Many youths dissatisfied with the status quo have provided oxygen upon which his campaign is running, much to the discomfort of veteran politicians, Messrs Tinubu and Abubakar.

The LP presidential candidate is campaigning on making Nigeria a producing country, cutting cost of governance, among others, if elected.
