Ayodele Fayose has sounded a note of warning to president-elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu that Peter Obi is not an individual who can be intimidated.
The former Ekiti state governor was speaking on TVC news on Tuesday, February 28, 2023, as he stated that Nigeria’s next president should work with the Labour Party flagbearer.
Fayose admitted that Obi’s emergence has become a thorn in the flesh to many politicians and described the former Anambra state governor as a smart man.
The People Democratic Party (PDP) member also noted that Obi is a man of little want and has the sincerity of heart needed to steer Nigeria to the path of development.
Fayose said: “Peter Obi should continue to thank God if this is an uncommon grace in Nigeria, Peter Obi has become an issue with Nigeria.
“Whoever wins this election, if he does not carry Peter Obi along will be in trouble, and the government won’t stand the test of time.
“Peter Obi is an institution now, you know Peter Obi has been a very smart guy, but that has been Peter Obi. You’ll see him carrying his bag alone, enter the motor alone.
“Peter Obi is a man of little wants, and little needs, he is saying the truth, and he is modest. He will tell you that my shoe is to make me comfortable.
Peter Obi deserves what is happening but let me tell you whosoever becomes the president of Nigeria should rally us.”
