Senator Ben Obi, Berates Osinbajo, Fashola Over Their Comments On 2023 Presidency, Calls Them Insensitive & Mischievous
A member of the PDP Presidential Council and the Director of the Campaign’s CUPP/Inter-party Directorate, Sen. Ben Obi has described as insensitive and height of mischief, Vice President Yemi Osibanjo’s comment on 2023 elections.
Osibanjo had in Ibadan recently postulated that President Muhammadu Buhari will hand over the presidency to the south west after completing his two terms of eight years in office. Obi in a statement in Abuja, berated Osinbajo for asserting that the presidency will revert to the South West after Buhari in 2023, saying “the PDP will win the 2019 presidential election in which case Osinbajo’s reckless and morally outrageous scenario will never come to pass.”
He said: “The mere thought of making that insensitive declaration after Obasanjo’s eight-year presidential tenure and Osinbajo’s four years as vice president, in the context in which power is yet to rotate to the South East, is the height of political intolerance and mischief-making”. Obi directed Osinbajo to re-learn the historical circumstances that threw up the Obasanjo Vs Falae presidential contest in 1999 and why the Late Dr Alex Ekwueme sacrificed so much to ensure that Obasanjo won that election.
