 2023 Peter Obi visits ex presidential candidate gets endorsement

 

Former Anambra State governor and candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 presidential election, Peter Obi has visited
Kingsley Moghalu- a former presidential candidate in the 2019 polls.

Moghalu, a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), who has also endorsed the candidacy of Peter Obi, made this known in a tweet on Friday.

The 2019 Young Progressives Party (YPP) presidential candidate described Obi as a man with uncommon passion for educational development.

He said : “H.E. @PeterObi paid me a visit yesterday morning at my residence in Abuja. I was very glad to receive him. We discussed the state of the nation and his aspiration to lead our country from 2023. I have always enjoyed a warm fraternal relationship with “Okwute”. We collaborated closely when he was Governor of @AnambraStateGov and I, also an Anambra indigene, was Deputy Governor of @cenbank .

” I recall his keen interest in education and our close coordination when, as CBN DepGov, I influenced a corporate social responsibility investment of N1 billion by the Bank in building infrastructure for Anambra State University in Igbariam (Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University). I also recall H.E. PO’s ’s invitation to me to deliver the 6th Edition of the Anambra State Distinguished Public Service Lecture in 2011 on the subject of Nigeria’s banking reforms , his conferment on me of the Anambra State Government’s Special Award for Excellence, and our collaboration as colleagues in Nigeria’s Economic Management Team (EMT) under then President @GEJonathan.

“As someone who has been a leading voice for our youth and a Third Force approach to Nigeria’s democracy, I believe PO’s candidacy is a welcome development.”
