Mr Peter Obi, the former governor of Anambra state and the Labour Party’s Presidential candidate, has recently been in the news. He is either praised, supported, or condemned, criticized for his efforts to transition Nigeria from consumption to production.
Yesterday, Prince Arthur Eze, an Anambra-born business billionaire, condemned Obi’s ambition to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari as Nigeria’s next president in 2023.
While speaking at the 2022 Ofala festival of HRH Igwe (Dr.) Robert Eze, the traditional ruler of Ukpo in the State’s Dunukofia local government area, Eze stated that he warned Obi to drop his ambition, but he refused to listen.
He stated that he advised Obi to wait until the next time after hearing him list the number of states he thought he would win.
“I warned Peter Obi to withdraw from this race, but he would not listen,” he said. I told him unequivocally that I was not a part of his plans. I told him to put his ambition aside and save it for another time.
“When he told me about his ambition, I asked him which states he believes he can win in the west and north – he told me; but I was not convinced. I told him he couldn’t win so he wouldn’t waste his time or money.”
