2023: Obi Picks PDP Presidential Nomination Forms
This follows the purchase of the expression of interest and nomination forms for him by a group which identified itself as Like minds for Peter Obi.
Addressing newsmen shortly after obtaining the N40m nomination forms, spokesman of the group, Ekene Nwakuche said the members hold no affiliation to any political party but decided to rally behind the former governor based on his capacity to provide good governance.
"We don't belong to any political party. We are just a group of young Nigeria professionals that feels that the way the country is going, the country is not going in the right direction and we need someone, a a seasoned technocrat that can steer the affairs of the country in the right direction, and cut down the cost of governance.
"Because we believe that if we cut down the cost of governance, the country would move in the right direction. We are different individuals in the group- professionals, businessman, public servants, different category of contractors and artisans.
"We have members from everywhere in Nigeria and we are fully represented. We want the country to move forward. We think Peter Obi can steer it forward and we believe in him because we have seen what he did in Anambra when he was a governor. And we have heard him talk; he has the wealth of experience to lead Nigeria to the promised land," he said.
