Prior to the general election on February 25, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, a former governor of Anambra State, projected that Mr. Peter Obi of the Labour Party will win in its entirety.
Only rigging, according to Ezeife, can prevent Obi from becoming the nation’s next president.
Prior to the Labour Party candidate’s and Senator Ahmed Datti’s rally on Tuesday, he made this statement on Monday. He added that he is adamant that Nigerians are aware that Obi is the best candidate in this race.
He said, “I am earnestly looking forward to the day Obi will be sworn in as Nigeria’s President. That day will mark the beginning of Nigeria’s return to the part of the glory.

“Apart from rigging, I would say that nobody else is contesting this election with Obi, inasmuch as I know that some other candidates have so much money at their disposal.
“All powers belong to God. And our God can stop every rigging and I see the hands of God in the ‘Obidient movement’ and I thank all Nigerians for thinking right this time around and I must say that all glory is to our God.
“By God’s grace, there will be an election this February. There will be no interim government and the result of the election is predictable.
“In fact, I can’t wait for that day, May 29, this year when Obi will be sworn in. But if I had my way, why not bring the swearing-in date down to March or April, instead of waiting till May which is three months far away from the February election.”

Obi is scheduled to meet with the traditional chiefs at the Government House in Awka while he is in the state as part of his ongoing national rally.
Over 180 support groups have finalized plans to hold a solidarity match in Onitsha for the rally, according to Mr. Titus Obasi, Head of Media and Publicity for the Labour Party Campaign Council.
Obasi said, “The activities include three town hall meetings at the Government House, Awka where he would meet with traditional rulers and then another town hall meeting with the student community.
“There would also be another town hall meeting with Anambra women at the All Saints Anglican Church hall which would be presided over by the wife of the presidential candidate, Mrs Margaret Obi and then the main rally proper at the All Saints Anglican church field Onitsha.”
Five million supporters, according to Mr. Ceasar Obidile, the leader of Peter Obi Express Media, would visit Anambra.

“We are ready and we are in full spirit because this is his home and all the support groups have mobilized enough and we made enough arrangements for welfare and security,” he said.
Geomartins Uzodike, who was also speaking as the director of the Obi/Datti Campaign Council in the state, pointed out that the rally is a component of the candidate’s and his running mate’s consultation and awareness campaign.
“It is going to be the mother of all rallies and this one is that the candidate is coming home to talk to his people and we have made all the necessary arrangements to ensure a hitch-free campaign rally in Anambra State.
“The meetings with the respective bodies are part of the process and our candidate has great respect for the youths who are represented by the Nigerian students as well as the traditional institution represented by the Anambra Council of Traditional Rulers,” he said.
