Obi said their ideologies and beliefs are not different.
Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party has said there is no difference between him and his counterpart in the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.
When asked about the difference between him and Atiku during an interview on Arise TV Prime Time on Wednesday, monitored by SaharaReporters, especially as they both belonged to the PDP before Obi’s recent defection to the Labour Party, the latter said there was none.
Obi was also former Vice President Atiku’s running mate in the 2019 presidential election, which was won by the incumbent, President Muhammadu Buhari.
Obi said their ideologies and beliefs are not different, adding that Nigerians are left to choose who they trust most out of the candidates contesting the 2023 presidential election.
“I have said it before, there is no different ideology between all of us who are running. Our politics has not matured (to a point) where we have different ideologies, beliefs and everything.
“We are at a what you can call developmental level. So, there is not much difference. What we are competing today or what Nigerians think is the choice before them now is of all these people promising the same thing, who can we trust? So, what we are selling now is trust. What we are selling now is character,” he said.
And when Peter Obi was asked if he did not trust Atiku when he was his running mate, he said, “I did.”
He, however, added that that was in the past and he would not like to dwell on the past.
“That was yesterday, the past. So, for me, the past is gone. We are dealing with the future. Things have gotten worse. And at this stage, I think we can solve the problem. I don’t want to go into the past,” he said.
