The Labour Party flag bearer said he is the youngest, fittest, and most qualified candidate to be President among the four leading contestants.
He stated these at a town hall meeting with Anambra traditional rulers at the Government House, Awka, as part of his nationwide campaign for the presidential election in February.
“This is not about turn but about capacity because if it is about turn, people like us would insist that it is our turn and should be considered.
“The job of a president is not a retirement loan or for any kind of settlement but about uniting and rebuilding the country.
“They said that I am a stingy man and I say they didn’t say that I am extravagant or that I embezzled public funds only that I am stingy and I tell you the job and the presidency of our country needs a stingy person.”
Speaking on behalf of the monarchs, Igwe Sunday Okafor of the Okpuno community, lamented that in the past, those who had been President of the country preferred going for treatment abroad noting that the cost of medical trips abroad has been a drain on the funds of the country positing that Nigerians do not need such kind of President.
Okafor noted that only God would choose who would be the next President of the country but expressed the wishes of the Traditional Rulers that God would choose Obi in the February 25th general elections.
