I prefer younger running mate, says Peter Obi

The presidential flagbearer of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has said he prefers to have a younger running mate.

Obi spoke on Wednesday when he apprared on Arise TV Morning Show.

He said, “We’re talking to a quite number of people and Hakeem Baba-Ahmed is a capable hand. But I wish I can work with somebody who is more younger.
