The presidential aspiration of Peter Obi, former governor of Anambra State, got a huge boost, Wednesday, when prominent stakeholders in Anambra State endorsed him for president.
At the event which held at Senator Uche Ekwunife Event Centre, Awka, the stakeholders based their support for Obi’s presidential aspiration on what they termed his impressive performance in the state while in office.
The event took place during the Anambra Central Senatorial District Stakeholders’ Briefing/Town Hall Meeting organised by Sen Uche Ekwunife to render her stewardship to the people.
The meeting was attended by lawmakers at state and federal levels, monarchs, presidents-general of communities, religious and market leaders, leaderships of organisations, youth leaders and other stakeholders across party lines.
The chairman of the occasion, Sen Ben Ndi Obi, expressed satisfaction with the leadership qualities of Obi and Ekwunife, noting that the two had made positive impacts in the lives of the people.
The former Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Inter-Party Affairs, said Ekwunife had been impressive with her performance in the senate, pointing out that he had no doubt that she would do better if given another opportunity to serve.
The former lawmaker who represented Anambra Central in the senate equally spoke highly about former Governor Obi, expressing confidence that Obi would fix Nigeria’s problems if given the opportunity.
