Former Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye, has said it is not yet time for the former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, to be president, adding that such could happen in the future.
According to Melaye, Nigeria doesn’t need the idea Peter Obi is putting forward which is about cutting cost of governance.
The Senator who spoke in a video on his social media pages said what the country needs at this time is a unifier.
He said, “Peter Obi is one of the finest Nigerians who is intellectually mobile, he is a great Nigerian and by the grace of God, he is qualified to be a president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the nearest future.
“Mr Peter Obi, I celebrate your movement for a new Nigeria, but I want to advise that your time is not now, you have to wait for your time.
“I have listened to your arguments and your deliveries including your campaign but I can say that 90% of your campaign is dwelling on reducing the cost of governance.
“I want to tell you that the problems of this country are beyond just cutting the cost of governance. It is less than 1% of our national problems.
“What we need in this country is to unite the nation. Nigeria has never been this divided in our national history. We need one character who has the ability to unite us as a nation.”
