Obi Is God’s Gift To Nigeria, Our Rising Star From The East – Ezeife
By Our Reporter
The first civilian Governor of Anambra State, Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has described the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, as God’s gift to Nigeria and the country’s rising star from the East.
He said Obi is specifically molded to help end Nigeria’s woes and to enthrone justice, equity and fairness.
Ezeife made these declarations when he led top Igbo leaders, including former President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, John Nnia Nwodo, to Labour Party’s Presidential Rally in Enugu.
Expressing special thanks to many national leaders and elder statesmen, including former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Afenifere Leader, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, elder nationalist Chief Edwin Clark of the Niger Delta and Middle Belt Leader, Dr Bitrus Pogus, who have openly endorsed Obi as Nigeria’s next President, Ezeife said of Obi in an address at the Presidential rally in Enugu that “God has molded him in a special way to solve Nigeria’s leadership challenges. He is young, energetic, vibrant with superior intellect”.
Ezeife, an Oxford trained economist, also said: “Peter is competent, has the capacity, capability and character. And he possesses the required skill, set knowledge and qualifications to navigate Nigeria away from her sociopolitical, economic and security challenges.”
Commenting on some Igbo leaders whose public utterances and actions suggest they do not support Obi’s Presidential ambition this 2023, Ezeife said pointedly: “They are selfish and they are not speaking for our group interest, but they will soon see the truth, repent and bring resources to advance the project.
“Ndigbo are supporting Peter Obi and Nigerians are ready to take back their country,” Ezeife declared.
