The running mate to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the 2019 election, Peter Obi, has picked the party’s nomination and expression of interest forms to contest for the 2023 Presidency.
Obi is now set to rival his former boss, ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar, who had earlier obtained form to vie for the same position.
The form was purchased by the Like Minds (LM) lead by Ekene Nwakuche their leader.
Speaking shortly after purchasing the forms, Nwakuche stated that they are a group of young Nigerian professionals that feel the country is not going in the right direction and needs “a seasoned technocrat that can steer the affairs of the country in the right direction.”
He said if the country can cut down the cost of governance, things will be better “and we believe the person that can do that is Peter Obi”.
The group comprising of professionals, businessman , public servants, different category of contractors, artisans said, “We want the country to move forward. We think Peter Obi can steer it forward and we believe in him because we’ve seen what he did in Anambra when he was a governor. And we have heard him talk, he has the wealth of experience to lead Nigeria to the promised land.
“We are doing this because of our children. Because if we don’t get it right this time around, this 2023, I don’t know where we’ll be. Each and everyone of us here knows how the country is; and we want a better Nigeria. I believe that if you are from Nigeria, be it from the north, south, east, west, you want a better Nigeria.”
