The foremost Peter Obi and Yusuf Datti Ahmed support group,
Obi-Datti Frontiers has berated the governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma, over

Obi is running on a tripod of competence, equity and justice and he is the only
candidate with the capacity to lift Nigeria out of the woods and take us to
where we should be in the comity of nations.”
