2023: ‘Peter Obi Has More Advantage Than Other Presidential Candidates’ 

By Raymond Ozoji, Awka

The Convener FUND40MB for Peter  Obi and humanitarian activist, Comrade Kennedy Iyere, has stated that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the incoming 2023 presidential election, Mr. Peter Obi, has more advantage than the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and candidates of other political parties because of  his general acceptance across the country.
Iyere, who stated this in Enugu during an exclusive interview with our correspondent, said that Peter Obi is obviously the most acceptable presidential candidate in the Southeast region and the country at large.
He said that Peter Obi has the credentials to lead Nigeria to the path of national unity and political stability. According to Iyere, Ohaneze-Ndigbo was yet to declare its stance on Peter Obi’s presidential ambition; that Ohaneze-Ndigbo was currently sitting on the fence, not coming out plain to support him.
Iyere further disclosed that the only authentic Igbo group publicly supporting Peter Obi’s presidential aspiration was the Igbo Elders Consultative Forum chaired by Chief Chukwuemeka Ezeife, former governor of Anambra state.
Iyere however maintained that Ndigbo were part and parcel of the Nigerian nation and have equally contributed immensely to her growth and advancement. He was of the opinion that Ndigbo should be allowed to produce the next president as they have not tasted the presidency since the return of democratic rule in Nigeria.
He said, “In terms of unity, only the Igbos have been able to prove that we can live and stay together as one big family. In your village and in my village they are there. They come with the mind to stay and build any community they live.
“Ndigbo have suffered long time political exclusion in Nigeria for reasons no one can explain. This sentiment has elicited the sympathy of people with just character to come to their aid. This is why I blazed the trail in the campaign for Igbo presidency in 2023 and Peter Obi has met the admiration and endorsements of the entire Nigerians.”
