Ben Murray-Bruce, the senator representing Bayelsa East has stated three things Nigerians should look out for in Peter Obi, running mate to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Bruce in a post on Saturday on his Twitter page, said Obi is a man with ‘Character, competence and Connections’
According to him, the three aforementioned qualities should determine the kind of vice president Obi will be, not the fact that he hails from Anambra State.
The Bayelsa lawmaker also used the medium to call for an end to Identity politics, urging Nigerians to watch out for those qualities in Obi rather than where he comes from.
Bruce wrote: “It is time for Nigeria to bury identity politics.
“Where you come from should not define where you end up. Character, competence and connections, are the 3 Cs that should matter in politics.
“ That Peter Obi comes from Anambra is not the issue. That he has the 3 Cs is the issue.”
