Isaac Fayose says the Labour Party’s presidential flag-bearer, Peter Obi, needs at least N50bn to win the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria.

The younger brother of former Ekiti Gov. Ayodele Fayose said Obi’s online popularity is not enough to secure him victory at the poll and emphasized he needs N50bn to defeat the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate – Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Fayose added that the Labour Party’s presidential candidate lacks the political structure to win the contest.

In a video he shared, the younger Fayose said Tinubu has the money and the structure with which to win the election. 

“Out of all the candidates, Obi is the most popular. If we vote today on social media, he will win. But an election is structure-based. So, Obi will need N50bn to be able to make that government a reality. N50bn, yes, Obi will win.

“Remember, Tinubu is a little bit popular too. He has what they call structure. The structure alone is worth N50bn. He has what they call goodwill. They call him ‘The City Boy’. So ‘where him money no fit reach, him structure go reach, where him structure no fit reach, him popularity go reach.

“Obi, with N50bn, will manage to buy his own army to defeat Tinubu.”
