Barely hours after attending the presidential declaration by former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, the vice-presidential candidate on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) at the 2019 general election, Mr Peter Obi, has declared interest to contest for the president of Nigeria in 2023.
Obi spoke on his intention to contest in the forthcoming presidential primaries of the PDP before the traditional rulers in his home state, Anambra State, at the Anambra State Government Conference Hall, Agu-Awka.
According to the former governor of Anambra State, he chose to make his declaration first before the monarchs in order to seek their blessings, adding that he needed their prayers and support for the project to be successful.
“I am talking to the traditional rulers because if somebody begins any journey he must first tell his father’s.
“I am telling you as my fathers that I am coming out to contest the position of the president of Nigeria.
“You know me and you know how Nigeria is today. In 2019, I went with Atiku as the vice-presidential candidate but today I want to come out on my own.
“I just came to seek your blessings as the traditional rulers of the State,” he said.
“If I am voted as the president, I will secure Nigeria, create jobs for the teaming youths of the country and pull Nigeria out of poverty.
“Everything I have done regarding resources, I have managed them proudly.
“I want to move this country forward. I’m a Nigerian, I believe in one united Nigeria, I want it secure.
“I am not just aspiring for the political position but to serve and move the country forward.
“I have all it takes to be president and move the country forward,” he said.
