The former Minister of State for Health, Mr Fidelis Nwankwo said only Peter Obi will fix the scarcity of food, fuel and naira wreaking havoc in Nigeria.
He made the statement when the Labour Party’s presidential candidate visited him in Ebonyi State.
Nwankwo, who made this known while speaking with newsmen in Abakaliki, capital of Ebonyi State, said the country is in a total mess and needs a young man that has the capacity and vision to transform the country.
The former chairman of Izzi LGA, who is aspiring to fly the governorship flag of the Labour Party in Ebonyi State, stressed that Nigeria needs a good leader that will end the lingering challenges, especially, insecurity in the country.
According to him: “Mr Peter Obi is on a presidential campaign tour [across] the states of the federation. He toured the northern states and today, [it] is the turn of Ebonyi State. As you can see, Obi’s candidature is a movement. It is more than a political process.
“The electorate in Ebonyi is desirous to see him (Obi). They are waiting to hear from him, and to know the plans he (Obi) has for Nigeria and Ebonyi in particular. Peter Obi is coming because Nigeria is not at its best time, it needs good leadership. There are lots of problems facing the country, ranging from, food, fuel, Naria scarcities and insecurity.”
Nwankwo said that he is prepared to fly the flag of the Labour Party, in Ebonyi State, especially as the Supreme Court decides on who becomes the authentic governorship candidate of the party next week.
According to him: “I have been aspiring to fly the flag of Labour Party, in Ebonyi State but there have been hitches here and there, but I’m sure within few days to come, it will happen.”
He said, “running with Peter Obi will be an honour because Nigerians want him, and I believe also that Ebonyians want me likewise.”
