Governor Ugwuanyi’s Media Aide Jumps Ship, Joins Peter Obi Campaign Movement

A media aide to Governor Ifeanyi of Enugu State, Mr. Emmanuel Jonathan has declared his support for the Labour Party, LP, Presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi.

Jonathan, a Special Assistant to the Governor on media, made the endorsement of Obi in a statement made available on Wednesday morning.

Governor Ugwuanyi is one of the G-5 governors who are having a running battle with the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar. However, the governors are still silent on their choice candidate for the election.

Jonathan has now become the first politician appointee in Ugwuanyi’s government to openly endorse Obi.

He is to lead one of the Obi’s campaign groups, Obi/Datti Apostles Presidential Campaign Support Group.

The PDP chieftain said in the statement that he could no longer keep mute in the face of bad leadership, stressing that he had chosen to add his voice in support of the Peter Obi/Datti Yusuf Baba-Ahmed presidential ambition.

“Nigeria as a country has suffered inept leadership for years leading to the exposure of many innocent Nigerians to a hellish condition while still alive.

“The only panacea to redress this situation is to first of all appreciate the words: Truth, capacity, justice, equity and fairness while making choice on those who will pilot the affairs of Nigeria in the next four years, which the Peter Obi/Datti Baba-Ahmed Presidential aspiration epitomizes,” he said.
