Presidency is nobody’s birthright – Obi

Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), says Nigerians will elect a leader that they trust as it is not the turn of anyone to govern the country.

Speaking at a retreat organised by LP on Monday in Abuja, Obi said: “It will not be by turn, it is nobody’s turn. It must not be by connection. The election next year must be based on character and trust; it must be based on competence.”

Many pundits believe this is a veiled attack on the APC Presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, who in June this year, spoke about how he helped Buhari clinch power and why he deserves to be the next President.
