Former Anambra State Governor Chukwuemeka Ezeife has stated that the Ohanaeze Ndigbo should back Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi to victory.
Ezeife was reacting to Ohanaeze’s support for Obi for president.
The elder statesman urged Ohanaeze to go above and beyond endorsing Obi in order to ensure his victory in 2023.
He urged the apex Igbo socio-political organisation to provide Obi with logistical and financial support to help him win the election.
“Ohanaeze should not only endorse Obi but also sponsor him to victory.
“I came to the East, they told me that Obi deserves to be president because it is the turn of Ndigbo.
“I went to the West, they told me that Obi deserves to be president because he has the intelligence and capacity to return Nigeria to part of glory and in the North, they told me that he deserves it because they believe he has the economic survival plans for Nigeria in his palms, based on his antecedents,” he told newsmen yesterday.
Lately, Obi has enjoyed a large followership from Nigerians who believe it’s time for a change in leadership.
As Nigeria inches closer to the February election, Obi’s acceptability continues to increase among Nigerians.
