Dr. Obiageli Ezekwesili, the former World Bank Executive and one time minister of education has pitched her camp with Peter Obi as she pledged to vote for him over Tinubu, Atiku or any other candidate in the forth coming 2023 presidential election.
Ezekwesili said she came to the conclusion on voting for Peter Obi over Tinubu and Atiku based on the publicly available information of the candidates. And her ratings on the candidates led her to the decision and preponderance of her conclusion.
She analyzed that “women which make up about 51 per cent of the voting population are more inclined towards the presidency of Peter Obi, adding that the former Anambra governor’s prospect cannot be dismissed taking into the perspective various zones of the country and the appetite they have for an inclusive approach to governance.”
Speaking to the host of Channels Television’s Hard Copy programme, she said, “To the specific issue of a presidential candidacy, what I said and which I repeat everywhere that I am asked is that I look at the other two candidates and I rate them immediately on the basis of what we know, and for the three candidates there is publicly available information with which to do the rating.
“So after I have done my rating, there is absolutely no way I would leave a Peter Obi and vote for any of the other two candidates.”
