Peter Obi will do well as minister of economy says Ned Nwoko
The former House of Representatives Member, Price Chinedu Munir Nwoko, aka Ned Nwoko, who is married to the Nollywood star Regina Daniel, said the former Governor of Anambra State, and the presidential flag bearer of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, don’t have the structure to lead the country.
While speaking in an interview with BBC on Tuesday, he eulogised Obi, described him as ‘thrifty’ said he will do well as a minister of finance or economy, and don’t think the Igbos are ready for the presidency.
“Peter Obi is a good man and has impressed me. When he came to London he came alone. He’s a capitalist, a big-time player in the business world, and conservative in how he handles things, ‘ he said
“I will like him back in PDP, he will do well as Minister of Economy, and he will help us turn around Nigeria’s economy.
Mr Nwoko further said “there are certain factors in the Labour Party that would hinder Obi from unseating the ruling the party
“Labour Party does not have the structure to win but they have a support base. He’s a popular candidate but cannot become president because he does not have the structure.
“As a president, you must have the majority of the Labour Party in the House of Representatives and Senate. Many things in Nigeria will work against the emergence of a president under the Labour party, It wouldn’t happen.”
