Obi has embarked on consultations across Nigeria in a bid to rally support for his 2023 presidential aspiration.
The ex-Anambra State governor’s emergence has made next year’s election the most complicated and unpredictable in the history of the country with Nigerians who have long clamoured for a change in the status quo queuing behind the gap-toothed graduate of philosophy.
The other two major contenders – Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the PDP flag bearer, Atiku Abubakar, have also embarked on a series of consultations ahead of the election.
