Of all the people that ran for President in 2023, Tinubu was the best – Former Labour Party member, Doyin Okupe (video)

Politician, Doyin Okupe, has stated that of all the people who ran for the Presidency in the 2023 elections, Tinubu was the best. 

Okupe who served as the Director-General of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Organization in the 2023 general election, stated this during an interview on Channels TV on Friday night, June 7.

He said hindsight has provided him the opportunity to realise that Tinubu is the best for the job.


“Let me tell you, of all the people that actually ran for President in 2023, by the benefit of hindsight, Bola Tinubu is the best. I have seen Peter Obi, I have been with Atiku Abubakar, I also knew Bola Tinubu many years ago. I have not seen him in the last 7 to 8 years, that is not the point but he is the best in terms of capability, commitment and knowledge.”


Okupe said Nigerians cannot judge the Tinubu administration like they judged past administrations because he came in after it seemed like governance was ‘’abandoned for 8 years.”


Insisting that one year is too short to judge the current administration, Okupe said that if Nigerians give Tinubu more time, he would do well.


Asked if his statement isn’t a betrayal of Obi whom he campaigned for in 2023, Okupe disagreed. According to him, his support for Obi was borne out of the mutual belief they had that a Southerner should be the president which led to their exit from the PDP.
