Adamu Talba Garba, a former presidential aspirant voiced his opinion regarding the chances of Peter Gregory Obi the presidential flag bearer of the Labour Party and former governor of Anambra State at the forthcoming presidential election, he acknowledged that Peter Obi is knowledgeable when it comes to buying and selling, but emphasized that Nigeria is a state, not a shop.
According to him, a lot of supporters of Peter Obi are backing him simply because they are trying to vent their anger and frustration. He explained that the former governor of Anambra State would have been a perfect match should Nigeria be in search of a shop manager.
In his words;
“The Obedient or Peter Obi movement is just a euphoria. We believe in power shift, David Umahi and Rotimi Amaechi, a former minister, all contested for presidency under our party. If Nigeria is looking for a shop manager, Peter Obi would have been a perfect candidate. Unfortunately, Nigeria is a state and not a shop. We need a statecraft economic model.”
