Former governor of Anambra state and presidential aspirant, Peter Obi has raised financial support of 25 billion nairas to support his presidential ambition.
Peter obi who recently dumped the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and joined the Labour Party (LP) is gaining massive support from Nigerians and personalities like Obi Cubana, Prince Arthur Eze, and others.
Remember that Dr. Doyin Okupe, the Director-General of the Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Organization, earlier claimed that his team would mobilize nearly 30 million people to help the Labour Party, LP, and its candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, win the election.
Okupe, who abandoned his presidential aspirations in favor of Obi, disputed claims made by some that the former Anambra governor lacks the necessary structure to win a presidential election.
In an interview with Sunday Vanguard, President Olusegun Obasanjo’s former Special Assistant on Media and Publicity expressed confidence that the LP’s candidate will become Nigeria’s next President because he was the best of the best.
“We have a saleable candidate and have a candidate that is adjudged to be the best in Nigeria currently. We have a currency that is comparable to none. Peter Obi, in terms of currency, is the sure bet that’s available politically in Nigeria today”.
“It is impossible for any political party to produce any candidate that can match him in terms of performance and integrity. He has over-proven that he’s a man that has integrity. In terms of antecedents, what he did in Anambra State is classic and exemplary. In terms of execution, knowledge, and exposure especially in the economy, no aspirant or candidate comes close to him”, the DG stated.

According to him, Obi’s presidency would focus on changing the country from consumption to production, reducing poverty, changing the attitude of governance from the elites collecting together to share to encouraging people to create wealth, and leading and managing governance resources responsibly, transparently and honestly.
