I’m ideologically opposite of Obi,Tinubu is my candidate— Hadi Sirika

Hadi Sirika, minister of aviation, says he does not share the same vision as Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate.


Sirika in a tweet on Sunday said he is “ideologically opposite” of Obi while affirming that Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is his candidate.


“I am ideologically opposite of Peter Obi, I don’t share his vision nor do I stand for what he stands. I have not endorsed him,” he tweeted.


“I am APC. He is labour. Asiwaju was my candidate long before the primaries and he still is. God willing we are coasting to victory. Jagaba all the way.”


A Twitter user by the name Peter Ayuba Dogo, took a swipe at the minister, saying: “If Tinubu wins, which is very slim, you will never continue in Aviation Sir. He have his agenda and am sure he have his own people. You have played your role.”


But Sirika responded, saying: “Even if it were possible for President Muhammadu Buhari to succeed himself, by whichever miracle, I never will be minister.”


“Public office is NOT a dynasty, it is transient. If it were permanent, I wouldn’t have met it. From General Manager to House of Reps. to Senate, then to Minister. E do na”.


Peter Obi of the Labour Party is one of the leading candidates in the upcoming presidential election scheduled for February 25.


Despite dissenting opinions on his chances of winning, Obi’s candidacy has gained massive support, especially from the youth who seize every opportunity to show their allegiance.
