“No doubt Obi through his wide acceptability has shown that his candidacy is divine and seen as only person that take Nigeria out of its present bondage. All other candidates were chosen based on merit,they’re all people of integrity and impeccable character, all we’re interested in who will deliver the dividends of democracy to their people,” Ekenulo said.
