‘Don’t just endorse Obi, sponsor him to victory’ —Ezeife tells Ohanaeze.

Former Governor of old Anambra state, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has told the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, to move beyond its recent endorsement of the presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, and consider sponsoring him to victory in the 2023 presidential election.

Ezeife who charged the Igbo group to move beyond mere endorsement of Obi in a statement in Awka on Sunday, said the best way of showing its approval for Obi was for “Ohanaeze to go beyond endorsement and give financial and logistic assistance to enable him come out victorious during the elections.”
