Razaq Abubakre, an Emeritus Professor and former federal Commissioner, said LP presidential candidate Mr Peter Obi couldnt have beaten Presidentelect Sen.
Bola Tinubu at the last presidential election.
Abubakre, also a former Vice Chancellor of AlHikmah University Ilorin said this in Abuja on Friday.
The technocrat alleged that Obis lacklustre performance as former Governor of Anambra State worked against him.
Abubakre said that Obis inability to build leaders, unlike Tinubu, who has inspired several leaders nationally and internationally, was part of his undoing.
He further stated that the allegation against Obi in some sections of the media where he was accused of practising tribal jingoism during his governorship tenure against nonIgbo speaking people, was part of his albatross.
Some of his activities, performance and attitude in synchrony to those of some of his followers, the obidients, reveal their latent parts.
His use of religion in contradistinction to Asiwajus MuslimMuslim ticket gave him a transient false national spread.
His alleged impropriety with state funds, as confirmed during an interview with Kadria Ahmed that he invested state funds in his family business, is also part of his undoing, Abubakre alleged.
He recalled the simile employed by Rabiu Kwankwaso, NNPP presidential candidate, during his speech at the Chatham House, London, that Obis electoral fortune was like the foam of Andrews Liver Salt that comes with power and disappears almost immediately.
