The spokesman of Atiku campaign Organization, Senator Dino Melaye has explained that the noise on Social Media will not help Labour Party’s candidate Peter Obi to win next year’s general election.
Meleaye posited that elections are carried out physically and not online.
The Kogi born Senator made this known on Friday night when he featured on Politics today on Channels Television.
He discredited any momentum on social media about the increased chances of Obi becoming the next president as just mere wishful thinking, full of euphoric beliefs.
He said, “To start with, there is no wave. What you have is euphoria; a created euphoria,”
Although, he praised Obi for being a fantastic guy and having the intellectual capacity to resolve the numerous problems the country is dealing with, but admitted that it wasn’t his time yet to become the next president.
“I have tremendous respect for him and I have said it before, but this is not his time,” he said.
“He does not have what it takes now to unify the country,” he continued, believing that it will take a miracle to get to Aso Villa as Nigeria’s number one citizen.
Taking a comprehensive look at the performance of the Labour Party in Osun State, Senator Dino said that social media couldn’t help translate their support for the Labour Party candidate despite Obi’s support.
