I Prefer Younger Running Mate, Peter Obi Reveals

Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Mr. Peter Obi

Standard bearer of the Labour party (LP), Peter Obi, says he would like a younger person as his running mate.

He said his party is considering a number of people to be his running mate, including Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF).

The former governor of Anambra said this on Wednesday in an interview on Arise Television. 

There has been a speculation about who Obi would pick as running mate for the 2023 elections. 

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

“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.”
