The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi said the  presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu is his respected elder brother.

The former governor of Anambra state made the remarks in an interview on #WithChude, which the host, Chude Jideonwo, shared on Monday on his Twitter page.

When asked about the recent video with Chude Jideonwo that went viral in which he reportedly said Tinubu was not physically fit for the office of President but most people around him are supporting his ambition because of the money they will get from him.

Reacting to that, Obi said people took his statement about Tinubu out of context. “Tinubu is my respected elder brother. The only thing I’m saying is where we are today. It is a job that requires physical and mental energy, because the country is in a mess. It’s a 24-hour job.

“They have contributed one way or the other in the past and they have to be respected and recognised in due time, but I just tried to explain that because they contributed in the past and everything doesn’t necessarily mean that they have to stay forever and ever.”
