“As you are aware, the challenges before Obi are not just to win the election, but to also create millions of jobs for the unemployed youths in Nigeria. We would stand by him because amongst us are diverse millions of entrepreneurs who are successfully running their own companies, in America, Asia, Europe, Africa, everywhere” Uche, added, in the statement, released in Abuja.

“Our decision to support Obi was predicated on the fact that Obi is an entrepreneur himself and deserves our backing given his promises to revolutionise Nigeria’s economy by creating production spaces and plethora of jobs. We are aware that Nigeria is a giant of Africa and therefore demands a creative, visionary leader, who is honest and sincere and whose exemplary leadership will make impact not only on Nigerians but on the entire Africa. Obi’s records and vision for Nigeria are inspiring and we know what good leaders are like and what they do for their country men and women. We see Obi as a perfect mold of such leaders. That’s why we are supporting him” the statement concluded.
