An elder statesman, Tanko Yakasai has described the endorsement of the Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi by former president Olusegun Obasanjo as insignificant, saying Obi was not among the two major contenders in the race.
Yakasai made the disclosure while reacting to Obasanjo’s new year message titled, “My appeal to all Nigerians particularly Young Nigerians.”
Specifically, Yakasai opined “Obj endorsement insignificant. The 2023 contest is a race between two top contenders, and even the gap between the major contender is so wide that no one will waste his or her vote on a contestant that is far far behind these big two.
“And whoever chooses to elect somebody that has no significance in the race knows too well he or she has wasted his or her vote.
“Obasanjo might have his reasons, but it will certainly not count on the February election. The contest is zeroed to two contenders, so Obj endorsement is clearly insignificant,” he added.
