Former Minister of Education, Obiageli Ezekwesili, has said she would vote for the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi, ahead of Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the 2023 election.
Ezekwesili said Obi is ahead of the top three presidential candidates vying for the 2023 presidential election.
The former minister said having done her ratings based on available information in the public domain, she will vote for the former Anambra State Governor.
She stated these while speaking on Channels Television Hard Copy programme.
“To the specific issue of a presidential candidacy, what I said and which I repeat everywhere that I am asked is that I look at the other two candidates and I rate them immediately on the basis of what we know, and for the three candidates there is publicly available information with which to do the rating.
“So after I have done my rating, there is absolutely no way I would leave a Peter Obi and vote for any of the other two candidates,” she said.
She said analysis has shown that the youths are clamouring for change; hence their decision to back Obi.
