In what appears a dig aimed at Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party for the 2023 election, Dino Melaye, spokesperson of the Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign, on Wednesday said Nigeria is not looking for attributes of a Director-General of the National Bureau for Statistics (NBS) or motivational speaker in a presidential candidate.
Newsbreak.ng reports that Obi, a former governor of Anambra State, is popular for quoting facts and figures while speaking about challenges facing Nigeria, alongside his plans and policy for the country if elected. However, Melaye, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said his principal, Atiku, is “the only true leader” Nigeria needs.
“While one of them is selling a dream, one is CEO promises Nig Ltd, another a transaction expert but Atiku is the only true leader who speak to the very issues confronting us as a nation. Nigeria is not looking for attributes, DG National Bureau for Statistics or motivational speaker.
“We want results and only Atiku can do that,” Melaye wrote on his verified Facebook page.
