ABUJA, NIGERIA- Lolo Iyom Josephine Ezeanyaeche, 104, has endorsed Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, for president.
The Nigerian Tribune reports that Ezeanyaeche, also known as Mama Africa, gave her endorsement on Wednesday, February 22, when she visited the Labour Party office in Abuja.
Among all the frontline standard bearers across political parties, she believes Obi is the most qualified.
In addition to being the Chairman Emeritus of The Voice for Senior Citizens of Nigeria, Ezeanyaeche strongly believes that the former Anambra governor is the man who will fix Nigeria and give it a new beginning.
She explained: “The searchlight for his selection was nationally oriented and accepted for his visionary leadership, integrity, transparency, competence, capacity, character, selflessness, enlightenment, education, nationalistic and globally acclaimed.
“Calling him for this honourable task in our assessment will comfort Nigerians for a new beginning.”
“Obi will fix the economy and create jobs, if the economy is fixed, it will be easier tackling insecurity, fighting corruption and improving social well-being of the people.”
“Peter Obi will passionately undertake major constitutional changes that will bring about devotion of power, fiscal federation and entrenching of good governance and rule of law.”
According to Ezeanyaeche, Obi has the character, competence, and capacity to lead Nigeria based on his track record and previous achievements.
As she puts it, “Nigerians will be healed of the wounds caused by incompetent leadership.” 2023 elections:Lolo Iyom Josephine Ezeanyaeche
In addition, a pastor of an Assemblies of God congregation in Ghana has endorsed the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi ahead of the 2023 elections.
An online video shared by the pastor suggested that Obi instead of being elected should be appointed president.
In his own words: “Today in Nigeria, three men are standing for election. One of them when you check his record, he left office, just governor, just like regional minister, and he left N75billion in the coffers for the next man.”
