During an exclusive interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today show, Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), shared his perspective on the recent election. He mentioned that if the Labour Party’s candidate, Peter Obi, had presented a more compelling candidacy, Nigerians might have chosen him in the February 25, 2023 election.

Wike, the former governor of Rivers State, explained that he had thrown his support behind the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) over the candidate of his own party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, during the fiercely contested election.

He stated, “I prefer not to engage in discussions centered around social media topics. My focus is now on matters related to the economy and the actions of the President.”

Wike continued, “If Obi’s approach was more effective, the Nigerian people might have favored him.”
