2023: Why the Eastern part of Nigeria should support Peter Obi for President. (OPINION)

Peter Gregory Obi was a two term Governor of Anambra state, In his first term as the governor of the state he was Impeached and his impeachment was later overturned by a court ruling in 2007 that allowed him to complete his four years terms, before recontested and won the election in 2010.

Today former Anambra state governor and the Vice Presidential candidate to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in the 2019 general election on the platform of People's Democratic Party (PDP) Peter Obi is 59th today.

Peter obi who has received several awards for the way he manages personal and government funds, he is very frugal in spending. He is well-read and up to date about the laws of Nigeria. And that was why he was able to challenge the the result of 2003 general elections. Eventually, he was given his rightful position.

Some of his quotes are “To you young people, take back your country…it is your future they are toying with”.

“I reduced my convoy to 5 vehicles and you cannot buy fuel unless I am in the car”.

“I beg you to participate more in politics, the society we help them abuse today will take its revenge tomorrow”.

Now let us look at it from this angle while Obi was the governor of the state of Anambra the man stand out very prudent and very active. His government then saw Anambra state free of polio in year 2012 first of it kind before other states follow up. 

Fast forward to 2023 can't Alhaji Atiku Abubakar support his Vice Presidential candidate in 2019 in consolidate the Southern ambition and Igbo Presidency in particular? 

Let me have your view on this, please apply not emotions to contribution.
