Twitter street on fire as Peter Obi Declares for 2023 Presidency.



“Peter obi declares for presidency” is arguably the best News thag came out of Nigeria today. For the first time in a long while, Nigerian youths showed their happiness towards someone who aspires to contest the 2023 elections.

This is unlike the backlash that had followed people who in one way or the other endorsed Bola Tonubu or Atiku Abubarkar for president in 2023. Earth sound had reported that a pastor had placed a curse on all those who endorse Tinubu for 2023 election saying that “ Anybody that’ll Endorse Tinubu will not Enjoy 2022.

Peter Obi, the former governor of Anambra State, has declared his intention to run for president in 2023.

The vice presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2019 elections made the declaration in Awka while speaking to the royal fathers and Presidents General of the state’s 181 communities at Government House in Awka.

See what he said.

Peter obi declares for presidency.

Peter Obi who is also known as Okwute was expected to officially declare his presidential candidacy on Friday.

This is the first time Obi has publicly stated his intention to run for office in 2023.

Peter Obi for President 2023.

The twitter space as well as other social media platforms in Nigeria stood still for Peter Obi after he revealed his intention to contest for the 2023 presidency.

As matter a matter of fact, one facebook user identified as Phils mocked Alhaji Atiku Abukakar when he wrote; “

“Atiku spent all the money, rented venue, paid artistes to perform, gathered the crowd, invited the press, Peter Obi came there and declared for FREE.

Peter Obi’s declaration is now trending everywhere with Atiku’s money. But I doubt Obi truly knows how influential he is.

On Facebook, Best Chimezirim wrote; “Man like Peter Obi 🙌, my love for him.
Because of this man, I’ll go and search for my misplaced pvc.

The Obi presidency might be the miracle we need, the igbos have been long neglected in executive positions, and this should be an issue of concern for any detribalized person.

I can still remember some excerpts from his speech during the 2019 atiku/obi saga:
-Unemployment rate
-Poor investment in Education
-Inequality index
-Pathetic investment in SMEs
-Worsened internal security
-Index of malnourished children under the age of 5
-Jobs! Jobs!! Jobs!!! Etc
Peter Obi DISCOMBOBULATES and throws me off balance, the way he sites economic figures ad lib 🤣🤣🤣
He has a relatively excellent track record, I pray he wins🙏

Japheth Prosper shared a story about how Peter Obi’s achievements in education, she wrote;

My office was in search of a video editor years ago. We advertized in the media and many people showed up for interview. It was a scarce venture at that time.
Unfortunately none of the people who came for interview knew about After Effect which was one of the major packages listed on the requirement tablet.

We needed someone who was very competent and very conversant with all the packages.

A week later, a teenager showed up. I thought he had come to make an enquiry but was shocked to hear that he came for the interview.

“What interview?” I echoed with heightened curiosity.

“Video editing,” he responded without much emphasis. I thought he was joking.

I asked how old he was and he said he was eighteen with a school cert as his qualification. I just felt he was a joker.

In no time, he sat on the chair facing mine and exhumed his laptop from his bag. Minutes later, he was showing me what he knew on my desk in his computer.

Soon, all the members of the management team stood listening to the boy as he lectured everyone of us on all the things he knew; and he knew more than we could imagine – more than everyone we had interviewed for the job.

My boss asked how much he would take if we employed him and he said he would rather we negotiated with him on a contract basis. He dictated all the terms. He would come only three times a week. And he wanted to be paid two hundred and fifty thousand naira! My salary was not up to half the amount he requested. It was an outrageous sum.

We pleaded with him to come down a little but he was not willing to go down lower than that. He said he was already making over three hundred thousand naira from the jobs he did for churches and pockets of other organizations. We needed him badly. We didn’t want to let go.
My boss called for a meeting immediately the boy left us.

“How are we going to pay him?” he asked.

I came up with with an idea to salvage the situation. I suggested we advertize in the media that we would hold lectures for candidates who were interested in video editing and we could then raise money from the students to pay the young man. Again, our in house computer gurus could also learn from the young man and take over from him on the day he decided to go.

My boss bought the idea and we immediately swung into action. We called the young man and told him of our plans. He didn’t mind so long he would get his pay. He demanded we get a projector. He didn’t mind that most of his students were going to be more educated and older than him because he trusted his abilities.

We did radio jingles and our phones began to buzz incessantly. People were calling from every nook and cranny. The first set of students we admitted for the first week fetched us 1.8 million naira. The course was for three months.

In six months, we had made over ten million naira from video editing students.
Why am I telling this story? Because most of us have not yet realized that crude oil can’t put food on our table as much as human capital development would.
This boy who turned things around for us at the office then did not come from Jupiter. He came from Anambra state. When we asked how he came to know all the things he knew, he revealed that the state governor had brought in computer specialists to the state from Asia to teach them for free. As a beneficiary of this initiative, he was able to learn all the things he knew.

The governor of Anambra state at that time was Peter Obi!

Now, if for nothing else but sentimental, tell me why I shouldn’t cast my vote for a giver of life; the one who understands that crude oil isn’t what we should be talking about now?

Peter Obi might not know this but he gave a boy life and by extension indirectly trained more people and put food on their tables.

I have said this many times before that Nigeria has all that it takes to be great with the kind of human resources available at its disposal. What is lacking is just the political will!
