Peter Obi is a Nollywood actor, he can’t win – El-Rufai

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State, has described the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi as a Nollywood actor.

El-Rufai said Obi does not have the capability of securing two-thirds of votes needed across the country to win the February 25 presidential election.

He stated this on Thursday during TVC Programme ‘Journalists Hangout’, adding that the LP candidate, without the political spread, won’t go far in the upcoming election.

He also said the battle to become Nigeria’s next president is between Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar respectively.

According to El-Rufai, the surveys done by the APC exposed revealed that it would be a tight election but Tinubu was ahead.

He said; “How can Peter Obi win any election? Peter Obi is doing 1 per cent in Sokoto, Kano etc. And these are the places the voters are.

“The fact that you’re doing 70 percent in Anambra state does not mean somebody doing 10 percent in Kano is not better than you. Kano is four million votes that actually happen. The number of votes in Anambra is the size of one local government area in Kaduna state. So, all states are not equal.

“If you poll states and you make them equal, yes, Peter Obi will sweep the south-eastern states; he will do well in south-south; where else? He’s not polling well in the south-west other than a drop in the ocean in Lagos. He’s polling in the Christian enclaves in the north — he’s polling well, but how many are they?

“Peter Obi cannot win the election. He doesn’t have the number of states; he doesn’t have 25 percent, the last time we checked in more than 16 states. He can’t go anywhere.

“Peter Obi is a Nollywood actor and that’s all he will be. This election is between the APC and PDP because they have the footprint; they have the spread. Ethnicity and religious bigotry will not take you anywhere and that’s what the Labour Party campaign is about.

“We are the only party with a candidate with a broad-based support across Nigeria, and by the grace of God, we are going to win.”
