The 2023 Nigerian presidential election will be held on 25 February 2023 to elect the president and vice president of Nigeria.

Incumbent APC Presidentย Muhammadu Buhariย is term-limited and cannot seek re-election for a third term.

Party primaries were scheduled for between 4 April and 9 June 2022 with theย Peoples Democratic Partyย nominating former Vice Presidentย Atiku Abubakarย on 28 May while theย All Progressives Congressย nominated former Governor of Lagos Stateย Bola Tinubuย on 8 June.

For the less politically representedย Labour Party, former Governor of Anambra Stateย Peter Obiย was nominated on 30 May.

In the weeks after the primaries, vice presidential running mates were announced with Abubakar choosing Governorย Ifeanyi Okowaย on 16 June while his main opponents initially picked placeholder running mates before later substituting in substantive nominees with Obi selecting former Senatorย Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmedย and Tinubu picking Senatorย Kashim Shettimaย on 8 and 10 July, respectively.

If channels television invite and asks you why are you defending Tinubu, Atiku or Peter Obi, withย  atleast four reasons, what would you say?

Iโ€™m a supporter of Peter Obi and if anyone ask my why, below are my reasons:

1. AGE :ย We all pray to grow old and in good health. So being old is NEVER a crime. In fact, it is a glory and a great achievement. This is why I pray for everyone especially old people battling with their health that God will grant you miracle and set you free completely.

However, there is time for everything and not all dreams can be realized because dreaming does not end. Every new day birth new dream. And when a war gets to the point where elders begin to carry weapons, then the war must come to an end.

Elders do not fight wars. Only children fight enemies at the gate. Out of all the major aspirants, Dr Peter Obi is the youngest of them all. And as long as cognitive and coherent abilities drop with time, then the issue of age will remain a concern among patriots. Elders guide and dish out wisdom. You donโ€™t find them in war fronts.

2. JUSTICE :ย I strongly believes in the principle of fairness, equity and justice. If power must return to south, then it must go to the South East. The SW has ruled for 8 Years with Obasanjo and currently as vice President Osibanjo. Jonathan has ruled under South South. So the only region left to lead is the SE in this democratic dispensation. No matter how many times you pray and fast, a nation without balance cannot have peace and prosperity.

I hate religion . But I am spiritual enough to know that basic truth.ย 2 Chronicle 7:14ย has buttressed this.ย So let us stop praying for peace in the land. Let us start working towards Justice. So among the aspirants in the SE, Peter Obi is most competent and a fantastic track records for me as I respect others.

3. WELFARE:ย It is not just the cry for Wealth Maximization, capital formation, job creation, poverty reduction and dependency ratio as economic indices, there are times a nation also needs cost minimization indices to succeed. You cannot continue to waste resources that are not enough. Peter Obi fits in all these areas for me. I saw what he did with Innoson Motors and many other investment as a governor. He is the only governor who left power since 2014 without pension and gratuity today. That means alot to me when we talk of GREED MANAGEMENT.

There is so much waste in the land. His achievement in education means lot to me as well. And how he single handedly established a teaching hospital in Anambra today.

4. NATIONAL UNITY AND PEACE:ย Every region needs presence and a sense of belonging for peace to reign and a leader that will lead the call by example. There is never a time Nigerians are divide this much in our history. For the first time, I see youths across religions, tribes and cultures looking for a way out. It is high time we gave every region a sense of belonging in Nigeria for peace to reign. Enough of violence and crime in the land.

Every other aspirant includingย Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubuย andย Alhaji Atiku Abubakarย is good in his own right and space and they must be respected over their dreams and aspirations. I once voted for each of them in the past.
But as far as 2023 is concerned, I feel Peter Obi is the best of them all. The older we become in life , the less we gamble about the future If we truly want a beautiful Nigeria.

I wish every contestant a good health and the best in their dream aspirations.
God bless Nigeria.

Over to you!
