2023: Nigerians need to ‘scrutinize, press’ Tinubu, Atiku, Obi, Kwankwaso, others – Hakeem-Ahmed

The Northern Elders Forum (NEF) spokesman, Baba Hakeem-Ahmed has urged Nigerians to scrutinize and “press” all the presidential candidates ahead of the 2023 elections.

He said all the presidential candidates should be scrutinized on how they intend to resolve Nigeria’s challenges if elected.

Hakeem-Ahmed spoke while appearing on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.

He pointed out that most of the presidential candidates are very experienced, hence they should tell Nigerians how they intend to tackle the country’s challenges.

According to him: “Nigerians need to press our candidates. We desperately need to find out who among these people should be trusted.

“These are all hugely-experienced people in terms of managing people. These are also people with enough money to get to at least a point where they are now candidates. Their personalities should be scrutinised.”

The forefront presidential contenders are Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP); Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
