Obi made the declaration on Thursday while addressing the Anambra State Council of Traditional Rulers at the State Government Conference Hall, Agu- Awka, Anambra State.

According to Obi, he decided to express intention first before the monarchs in order to seek their blessings, adding that he needed their prayers and support for the project to be successful.

“I am talking to the traditional rulers because if somebody begins any journey he must first tell his fathers.

“I am telling you as my fathers that I am coming out to contest the position of the president of Nigeria.

“You know me and you know how Nigeria is today. In 2019, I went with Atiku as the vice-presidential candidate but today I want to come out on my own.

“I just came to seek your blessings as the traditional rulers of the State,” he said, revealing that he would run for the post if PDP zones the ticket to the south.

He said that after careful studies of Nigeria, he discovered that Nigeria is at the lowest ebb and needed somebody like him to move it forward.

The former governor of Anambra State said he strongly believes in one united Nigeria, noting that he is in the race to move Nigeria forward.


“If I am voted as the president, I will secure Nigeria, create jobs for the teaming youths of the country and pull Nigeria out of poverty.

“I want to move this country forward. I’m a Nigerian, I believe in one united Nigeria, I want it secure.

“I am not just aspiring for the political position but to serve and move the country forward. I have all it takes to be president and move the country forward,” he declared.
