January 25,(THEWILL) – The Chairman of the Labour Party in Cross River State, Amb Patriarch Ogar Osim, says the party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has everything Nigeria needs in a leader.
He disclosed this in Calabar during a media engagement to drum support for the party’s presidential candidate.
He said Obi is the only candidate in the face, whose health, academic records and health does not need to be ascertained or defended.
In his words, “Peter Obi has everything that Nigerians need in a leader that will change the sorry state of our country.
“He is the best among the best. He is the only Candidate in the race that you don’t need a team of Doctors to ascertain his state of health, neither do we need a team of lawyers to defend his academic records or his source of wealth”, he said.
He described Obi’s ambition as being beyond politics, but a divine movement rooted in God almighty for Nigeria.
He said no amount of scheming against him will work because he represents freedom and greatness for this country.
He added that the Labour Party is here to win and solicited the support of the media in sensitising people to get their PVCs and vote for the party at the polls so Nigerians can enjoy the natural resources and blessings embedded in the country.
On his part, the coordinator of the Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Council in Cross River, Professor James Ekpoke, said with Peter Obi Nigerians have hope.
Professor Ekpoke, who is also a former Vice Chancellor of the University Of Calabar, said he has studied Obi right from his Governorship days and no governor has left money after eight years and it’s always debt.
“Peter Obi is a saviour, now we have a genius coming out.
“With the terrible corruption that has kept us where we are and his record in public service, it behoves on us to follow that person.
“We stand firm to plead with Nigerians to join hands and rescue this country”, he said.
He faulted the NNPP presidential candidate Musa Kwankwaso’s allegation that Peter Obi has an ethnic agenda, saying it is the greatest fallacy.
He added that the experience he (Kwankwaso) boasts of, is based on appointments by the government, which he earned through patronage.
