Isaac Fayose, a younger brother to former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, Isaac Fayose has opined that Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi will only manage to defeat Bola Tinubu of the All progressives Congress with N50 billion.
Fayose, who agreed that the former Anambra governor has a strong online presence, said the numbers on social media would not be enough to win the 2023 election.
He said Obi would need nothing less than N50 billion naira to ‘build structure’ and be able to win the 2023 presidential election.
He noted that Obi needs both structure, online presence and money to win the election, adding that Bola Tinubu already has popularity, money and structure.
Fayose said: “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 N50 billion to be able to make that government a reality. Fifty billion, yes, Obi will win.
“Remember, Tinubu is a little bit popular too. He has what they call structure. The structure alone is worth fifty billion. 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 fifty billion, will manage to buy his own army to defeat Tinubu,” he added.
