Elder statesman and former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George, has said that former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, is competent, capable and possesses integrity, sound character, and has all it takes to serve Nigeria at the highest level.

George stated this yesterday when Obi visited stakeholders and executives of the party in Lagos State in furtherance of his presidential aspiration. He said that Obi should be given the chance to salvage Nigeria from further failure.

“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,” he said.

In his reaction, Obi urged the leadership of the PDP to elect someone with capacity, competence and commitment as its candidate.

Obi, who stated that the country needs a candidate that can change its trajectory, said it is very important for the country not to make a mistake in its presidential choice in 2023.

He said: “I came here to consult and dialogue as a family member in the PDP and most importantly to continue to explain to the people on the dire need not to make mistake in 2023.

“The country is going through a very difficult path and we must not allow it to continue, otherwise all of us will pay for the consequences.”
