    Why I prefer younger running mate – Peter Obi

    Published By:

    The former governor of Anambra State and presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, stated the reason why he prefers a younger person as his ruining mate.

    Obi disclosed this on Wednesday on Arise TV Morning Show.

    When asked about the rumours on social media that he had picked Director of Publicity and Advocacy of Northern Elders Forum, Dr. Baba-Ahmed, as his running mate.

    He said, “We’re talking to a quite number of people and Hakeem Baba-Ahmed is a capable hand. But I wish I can work with somebody who is more younger.

    I prefer younger people who have a lot to offer rather than recycling old hands. I want a competent person and I am building a formidable team.

    “I want people who can look me in the eye and disagree with me during cabinet meetings. People who have their own minds and ideas.”

    He noted that he had practised all that he is preaching and the records are there for Nigerians to verify.

    “How can I hire professors to write or draft policy documents for me that I don’t even believe in? Obi added.

    “I have replicated all that I am promising Nigerians before. It would be the same thing. What I did in Anambra and what I achieved is what we will replicate on a larger scale. We want Nigeria to become the engine of production.”
