The former minister said Obi, one-time a governor of Anambra State, possesses what others do not have, even as the country suffers from poor leadership.

“Somebody says to you, between a cast of possible presidents that include the three frontrunners that we currently have – a possible President Tinubu, Atiku, and Obi – do you need anybody to tell you where you would be going? It would be an Obi.

She also lamented the country’s leadership problem, adding that the country has recorded stunted growth as a result of it.


However, she acknowledged that the current political awakening in the country, especially among youths, will alter the landscape.
