Speaking on Channel TV, the Harvard trained and one time World Bank Vice president and Nigeria’s former minister of education said that Peter Obi of Labour Party is far much better than Tinubu and Atiku.
Her words: “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.”
She continued with her comparison of the presidential candidates, “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.
“We have actually lacked the kind of leadership that in one person and persons, in other words, our leadership class and our political class, we’ve not seen an amalgam of people with the requisite skills of leadership.
“Skills of leadership are not ad hoc, they’re not things that happen by virtue of somebody thinking ‘I could be a leader’. So those attributes of competence, of character, of capacity – there is a deliberateness behind it that then enables people to mobilise the kind of action that is necessary to deliver.”
She also highlighted the Nigerian youths support of Peter Obi as an indication that competence is supreme.
