His Excellency, Mr. Peter Obi, former Governor of Anambra State and Presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday afternoon met with delegates and leaders of the PDP in Ondo State. He asked the delegates to support him at the primaries as the best candidate that can fix Nigeria’s ailing economy. He said “what the country needs at this particular period is somebody who can turn around the economy of the country and not a consensus candidate”.
In his remarks, former governor of the state, Dr Olusegun Mimiko, said the PDP was lucky to have competent, credible people as aspirants to contest for the post of president. In their separate remarks, the Ondo State PDP Chairman, Fatai Adams and the party’s governorship aspirant in the state, Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), commended the presidential aspirant for coming to identify with the delegates and stakeholders of the party. They stressed that his performance during his tenure as governor of Anambra speaks volumes of his pedigree.
