Peter Obi's certificates: Challenge to Tinubu, Atiku, Kwankwaso, others

The politician's aide called on presidential flagbearers from other political parties to also take up the challenge and publish their certificates like Obi.

Meanwhile, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate of Obi has also surfaced online.

The certificate revealed that the former governor started the NYSC program in 1985, a year after his graduation from UNN, and ended in 1986, precisely May 1.

2023 election: Peter Obi in pole position for northern votes

In another report, Obi was tipped to get a block vote in the northern region of Nigeria, a territory many political pundits have described as not favourable for the former Anambra state governor.

Dr Yunusa Tanko, the spokesperson of the Third Force Coalition for the Labour Party disclosed this during an interview.

As gathered by Legit.ng, the northern chieftain dismisses talks that his principal will not be voted for in the north.

He described it as insinuations laced with fallacy, stating that the current statistics favour his principal ahead of other presidential candidates in contention for Nigeria’s highest political seat.

When asked about his principal’s chances in northern Nigeria, Tanko said:

“That is a fallacy. Look, as we are today, check the statistics, the Minister of Finance is from the North, Minister of Defence is from the North, Economic Minister and other major principal officers, the Police IG, are from the North but if one person is killed in the South, 100 other persons are killed in the North.”
