‘Show me anyone who has more experience’ – Labour party VP Candidate, Datti-Ahmed tackles Okowa for saying Peter Obi doesn’t have enough experience to lead Nigeria

Following his assertions that Peter Obi lacked the necessary expertise to lead Nigeria, Datti Baba-Ahmed, the vice presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has criticized Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, Atiku Abubakar’s running partner.

In an interview with BBC pidgin on Monday, August 1, Okowa had stated that Obi’s experience was insufficient to solve the issues plaguing the nation. In the elections scheduled for 2023, he counseled the youth to choose their leaders wisely.

He maintained that Atiku had greater administrative experience in the Federal Government than Obi.

“I did not say he won’t have any votes, he will have. But what I’m saying is that he’s not a new candidate. It has not been long since he left PDP. You know he was in APGA before, from APGA he came to PDP. It has not been long since he left (PDP), so he cannot say anything about PDP because that’s where he was before.”

“Some of us are still here. At every party, there are good people and bad people. But today’s Nigeria is very troubled and we need the right person. That is why I am appealing to our youths to be wise and vote well, they should not be blinded by the concept of a false change because that is how they raved on Jonathan in 2015.


“His (Obi) previous experience is not enough for this one (presidency), it will be hard. His experience is not deep enough. Even as a current governor ruling in a time of crisis, I know how hard it is.


Reacting in an interview on ChannelsTV Monday night, Datti Baba-Ahmed challenged Okowa to present anyone that has more experience than the former Anambra State Governor.

“It’s untrue that Obi does not have enough experience. He is more experienced than any of the contestants. Show me anyone who has more experience than peter Obi. None of them have as much as peter obi has.”

He further stated that he and his principal were looking forward to having a “government in money and not money in government.”
