Tinubu Is Copying Peter Obi’s Planned Policies – Labour Party Campaign Member, Chris Nwokobia

President Bola Tinubu has been accused of copying all the planned policies of the Labour Party's presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

A member of the Labour Party/Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council for the 2023 election, Prof Chris Nwokobia made the claim during a live programme on Arise News TV on Thursday.

According to him, Tinubu’s style of governance showed he did not have any fresh ideas on how to solve the country’s lingering socioeconomic issues.

He argued that Tinubu’s appraisal of his performance in the last month is false, adding that President Muhammadu Buhari began similarly, but that in the end, his administration was unable to deliver on his campaign promises to Nigerians.

The Labour Party chieftain said Obi would have done better if given the chance due to his expertise in politics and economics.

Nwokobia said “All we have seen in the life span, one month of this administration is copycatting the policy programmes of Peter Gregory Obi. Peter Gregory Obi would have done better. Clearly, he understands Nigerian politics. Clearly, he understands the economy. Clearly, he understands business and he is a trader.

“Regarding the pace of Mr President, I disagree with those who say he is moving so fast. Haven’t we seen since 1999, several administrations, some moved faster than this? At some point, it took Buhari about six months or five months to appoint ministers in 2015. He was moving at quite supersonic pace that Nigerians said, ‘Oh, the body language of the president could do so much.’

“He (Tinubu) exchanged services chiefs, he removed subsidy because there was no provision for subsidy beyond June. He had no option but to do that. But the question I always asked economists and those who had gone to this garment of the seat is where really was the subsidy?”
