A former lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye, has told the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to wait for his time to achieve his presidential ambition.
Melaye stated this in a video shared on his Facebook page on Friday.
Melaye said while Obi is indeed a good product, the time was not right for him to actualise his presidential ambition, adding that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, fits the bill more.
“I have listened to your postulations, arguments, deliveries, and campaigns and I can say 90 per cent of your campaigns are dwelling on reducing the cost of governance.
“You are a great Nigerian and I salute your political and intellectual sagacity. You are one Nigerian that I know that tomorrow, there’s a space for you. But for today, let us forget the social media drama, diaspora euphoria.
“The truth of the matter is that we need a unifier and a Nigerian that can solve the problem of insecurity and that will have intel from every security facet of our national life. We need a Nigerian that will get intel from Cameroon, Mali, Chad, Benin Republic.
“We need a Nigerian that has that capacity to solve the problem of Boko Haram, bandits, and others because he has intel from all the neighbouring countries and that Nigerian today is Atiku Abubakar,” Melaye said.
