The former Governor of Anambra State and the Deputy National Director General of President Goodluck Jonathan Campaign group, Mr. Peter Obi, has called on the people of Anambra State and Nigerian to return President Goodluck Jonathan to power, saying that none among those contesting against him is a credible alternative.
Obi was speaking yesterday at Onitsha during the visit of the First Lady, Mrs. Patience Jonathan.
Obi, who insisted that Jonathan remains the best candidate, said that no past president had done what Jonathan did in four years.
He said Jonathan had not only resuscitated dead corporations in the country such as the railway, but was building new ones and expanding the frontiers of the country’s economy. Using agriculture as an example, Obi said under Jonathan, Nigeria’s food import bill had reduced by 50 per cent.
On the reasons while Jonathan should return, Obi said he possessed essential qualities of leadership which, according to him, includes patience, fairness, sense of justice and integrity among others. He argued that General Muhammadu Buhari’s taunted integrity does not translate into APC’s integrity as, according to him, all those surrounding Buhari cannot be said to be men of integrity.
