Babachir Lawal, a former secretary to the government of the federation, is optimistic that Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, will bring in a new Nigeria.
“We are all gathered here today because we all desire a change for our beloved country. We want a new Nigeria. We want to take back our country and make it great. And we all believe that the team that can do this for us, is the team of Peter Obi and Datti,” Lawal, who was represented by Prof. Wesley Daniel Nafarnda, said during his welcome address at the National Endorsement Prayer Day for Obi – Datti, organized by the Coalition of Peter Obi Supporters
He said that the 2023 general elections will be notable in many ways because it will be the first time that young people from Nigeria and Nigerians from all walks of life, regardless of their religion or ethnic feelings, will mobilize and support the Obi-Datti ticket in huge numbers.
Lawal continued, “Let’s elect the correct man (Peter Obi), so that Nigeria can become a great country and occupy a position in the committee of great nations.
The former SGF continued by saying that Obi’s history in Anambra state and other areas of life demonstrate that he possesses the traits necessary to be the kind of leader that Nigeria needs right now.
We have all assembled here to once again show our support for our presidential candidate Peter Obi and his running mate Datti-Baba Ahmed, stated the event’s chairperson, Prof. Patricia Obiefule. The unusual aspect of this occasion is that religious leaders from both Christianity and Islam have gathered to support him in prayer and ask God to grant him victory on Saturday.
She continued by saying that the Labour presidential candidate is qualified and experienced to make Nigeria a better and brighter place.
“Beyond the endorsement, we can all see that Nigeria needs help from the myriad crises that have beset the nation, and all hands need to be on deck to save Nigeria,” said Mazi Nice Chijioke, National Director of the Enyimba Progressive Association (EPA). We are making an effort to steer our country in a new direction.
