A former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State, Valentine Ozigbo has dumped the main opposition platform.

52-year-old Ozigbo was the PDP flagbearer in the 2021 Anambra governorship election.

The ex-President of Transcorp has reported that he would work for the rise of Peter Obi as Nigeria’s President.

The former Anambra governor is the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP).

Ozigbo disclosed that his choice to resign from the PDP depended on the requirement for Nigeria to have a capable and visionary person responsible for affairs of the country.

He noted Nigerians have been parted into two categories: those working to sustain the status quo and those awkward with business as usual and need to bring positive change.

“I belong to the group that is uncomfortable with the status quo, and we must do what we have to do to save this country and set us back on the path of progress,” Ozigbo said in a statement.

Encouraging people of clear mind to rise up to be counted, the financial specialist advised residents to conclude whether they like to be “on the dark side or on the side of the light”.

He noted that in 2023, Nigerians can either attempt to settle in the powers that have destroyed Nigeria or warriors of the light who will attempt to bring equity, value, and harmony.

Ozigbo portrayed Obi as a man with the right vision, assuring that his temperance, capacity and experience would remove the country from disturbed waters.

The politician said the nationwide support the LP flagbearer is getting “is based mainly on the revolutionary, inclusive, and inspiring leadership he demonstrated as a governor”.

“Having worked with him closely during my governorship campaign in 2021, I can attest that Obi is a thoughtful, kind, and generous leader who seeks excellence in all he does.

“Pulled by the brilliance of the candidacy of Peter Obi and Yusuf Datti, inspired by the passion of the Nigerian youth and driven by an undying love for Nigeria, I formally join the Obi-dient Movement.”

Ozigbo encouraged the people to attempt to change the dreams of Nigeria into the real world and “get it right” at the polls next February.

Lamenting the condition of the country under the All Progressives Congress (APC), he hailed the young people for showing positive energy, strength and enthusiasm in picking who will lead from May 29, 2023.

“They have rejected the lust for power of politicians that ought to be in retirement. They have consciously chosen who they want to lead them into the next four years.

“They considered fairness, justice, and equity. They have adopted a bold vision of a country where everyone is carried along irrespective of beliefs, faith, tribe, language, gender, and social status,” he said.

Ozigbo added that young Nigerians were focused on seeing that peace got back to the country and that residents experienced what the founding fathers and heroes wanted.
