2023: Ex-presidential aspirant asks Northerners to support Obi, gives reason
A presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) during the 2019 elections, Charles Udeogaranya, has advised the core North to support the candidacy of Peter Obi, presidential flag-bearer of the Labour Party for the 2023 election.
Udeogaranya who gave this charge in a statement sent to POLITICS NIGERIA on Monday said an Igbo individual deserves to be Nigeria’s next president. According to him, that ‘singular action will unite Nigeria’.
Obi is a former governor of Anambra State.
“No Nigerian who is sincere to himself or herself can be in denial that the Igbos who Nigeria has denied presidency for over fifty years, should not produce the next president of Nigeria in 2023; a singular action that will unite Nigeria and build inclusiveness for Nigeria to move forward.
“Nigerians in general and particularly the good people of Northern Nigeria must put all hands on deck and ensure that Mr Peter Obi, presidential candidate of Labour Party and as well, the best candidate on all numerous fronts, emerge victorious on the 2023 presidential election for the common good of all the people of Nigeria,” Udeogaranya’s statement partly reads.
