ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has expressed confidence in Peter Obi, the candidate of the Labour Party in the 25 February presidential election, saying that he is still the candidate for a better Nigeria.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), declared the then candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress and now-president, Bola Tinubu, as the winner of the election.
The announcement however, was tailed with legal suits from the opposition parties and their candidates, including LP and Obi.
They are challenging the process that produced Tinubu as winner of the election.
In a recent chat with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, former president Obasanjo insisted that despite President Tinubu being declared as the winner of the last election, Obi remains the candidate that the country needs.
“For the Nigeria that I believe we need to have at this point in time, Peter Obi is still the best candidate,” Obasanjo said.
On what he considered his greatest legacy, the former president said: “That I came here [earth] and God was immeasurably kind to me and showed His grace on me.”
