President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday said that immediately he hands over to the next President on May 29, he will take off from the swearing-in venue to Kaduna before proceeding to Daura, his hometown.

Tawfiq Akinwale, the Oyo State Labour Party (LP) candidate in the 2023 governorship election, has said if his party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, had won this year’s presidential election, Nigeria would have been in serious trouble

According to Mr Akinwale, Obi’s attitude shows how intolerant he is to his fellow countrymen who are Muslims.

Mr Akinwale said this during an interview with Symfoni , a social media-based news platform, which was monitored by SaharReporters. He blamed Peter Obi for the defection of several of the party’s governorship candidates, mainly from the North, to other opposition parties.

He said: “The Peter Obi that you know is a deceit; the Peter Obi that you know is a pretender. All the bigots of this world is (sic) Peter Obi because he is not somebody that should be trusted with the leadership of this country. Glory be to God almighty that did not allow him to win the election. If he had won, Nigerians would have been in a serious problem because of his attitude.
