- Peter Obi, vice presidential candidate of the PDP, has referred to the electoral process as 'clumsy', after casting his vote

- Obi lamented over the amount of time it took for him to vote; stating that things can be done better

- The former governor, however, expressed confidence that the PDP will win the elections


As Nigerians across the country cast their votes in the 2019 presidential and National Assembly elections, the vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, has referred to the electoral process as 'clumsy'.


Obi made the comment after casting his vote at his polling unit in Anambra state on Saturday, February 23.


When questioned by a Legit.ng reporter, Damilare Okunola, about what he thought about the electoral process so far, he said: “The process was clumsy. You all saw how long it took me to cast my vote. I believe we can do better.”


The former Anambra governor also spoke on the alleged arrest of some PDP bigwigs. He confirmed that chieftains of the opposition party, including himself, had been harassed and opined that the development means trouble for the country.


Obi, however, expressed confidence that the PDP will win the elections, saying: “I am confident that we will win, because the situation of things in Nigeria will make people change."


He added: “And if we don’t win, we shall accept it.”
