Elder statesman and Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George, has stated that Former Governor Peter Obi is competent, capable, possesses integrity, sound character and has all it takes to serve Nigeria at the highest level.
George made this known when Obi visited Lagos State PDP stakeholders and executives on Tuesday, in furtherance to his 2023 presidential aspiration.
He explained that Obi has been tested and proven competent, both in the corporate and public spaces, adding that he should be given the chance to salvage Nigeria from further failure.
His words: “I knew Peter Obi even before he became Governor. He has a firm background of entrepreneurship, expert knowledge of finance and economy, and sound record of public service, considering what he did in Anambra State.
“Nigeria definitely needs a capable leader like Peter Obi to rescue it from the myriad of challenges it is contending with. I urge Nigerians to support him and give him the chance to fix our nation.”
In his reaction, Obi pledged to continue to contribute to building a better nation for all. He lamented the astronomically high level of insecurity in the nation. He urged Nigerians to make the right decisions in 2023 to avoid losing the country to criminal elements, bent on overrunning the entire country.
