Alhaji Mukhtar Shagari, a former deputy governor of Sokoto State, has disclosed that he was approached to serve as Mr. Peter Obi’s running partner but turned down the offer.
As a leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he asserted that he firmly thinks that the PDP will always be victorious against the Labour Party in elections.
Alhaji Mukhtar Shagari made a statement in an interview with Channels TV Politics Today.
He asserts that “lofty ideas” are not necessary to address Nigeria’s problems.
For instance, Shagari cited the absence of the Labour Party from his hometown of Sokoto.
I was asked to be Peter Obi’s running companion, he stated. I informed them that I would be unable to leave my party because I firmly believe in its guiding principles, in what it stands for in Nigeria, and in the fact that the Labour Party will never be able to defeat it in an election.

For the Senate, who is running? I received no useful information regarding who is running for governor or anything else.
The problem is that Nigerians are always looking for solutions to the ills and difficulties plaguing their nation, whether they be in the areas of infrastructure, security, economics, or alleviating poverty. They are not searching for high concepts.
