The presidential candidate said he was ready to redirect leadership, pull it out of its sorry state and hand it back to the youths and entire Nigerians who had borne the brunt of bad leadership all the while.
“As you know, campaigns have not started. So, I am not here for campaigns. I am here to receive our brand new state secretariat from a wonderful supporter, who gave us this building to support our Labour movement.
“We have not started campaigns. When campaigns start, we will come and we will be able to tell you what we are going to do. But one thing we will assure you is that our journey is not a normal campaign. We are bringing back Nigerians, to take back Nigeria.
“When that time comes, you will know. We will be able to change this country. It cannot continue the way it is, today”. Obi who was treated to a rousing reception by his supporters in Imo and beyond enthused.
