He is the best candidate so far but!! I don't want him to run for presidency , he could have done it a long time ago now the country is beyond repair, every body is waiting for who to point fingers at scapegoat

He deserve it.

If I have my way, I'll work for this man and secure his victory

No one thought Obama could win and become the president of the US, including black people. While I wouldn't mind president Peter Obi if he can win, I'm more worried about what comes after. Can Nigeria restructure during his tenure, or are we going back to fool-ani janjaweedism?

Yes take the bull by the horn. Not playing second... to your fellow man.Bigger Betterthan

He is making his intention known to the traditional rulers in his region but yet to obtain form ...keep on deceiving yourself oo

Nobody is perfect. No politician anywhere in the world is squeaky clean. Nigerians, you are being offered the chance to get it right, at least, for once. Go for Peter Obi Go for national rebirth Go for visionary leadership. Nigerians, for once let's begin to chart a new course

Where dem dey run dey go

I think i will go for Peter Obi instead. With his clean record and other merits to add to his CV he can do better. But i pray by the time he gets there make cold breeze no go blow his promises off Sha. I will go for him.

Hallelujah 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

The best so far

He will still withdraw for Atiku, Trust me.

Wish him all the best. Better than those that have declared interest so far. May be Umahi can come close my personal opinion

I owe him my support

Well now i have someone to vote for no more atiku...
