“I formally, hereby, announce that I will, therefore, personally, vote for HE Peter Obi and his vice presidential candidate on election day, February 25th, 2023, as president and vice-president of the federal republic of Nigeria.

“I also call on all well Nigerians irrespective of ethnic, religious, and even political backgrounds to vote for H.E. Peter Obi without hesitation, as he is our best hope of a new Nigeria of peace, stability, and progress.

“I have also requested the leadership of PANDEF, as a democratic institution and all other socio-cultural and socio-political bodies which I head, to consult with their members at the levels of the states, local governmentsand diaspora to take further steps in supporting my choice of H.E Peter Obi.”
