The proud Igbo lady also encourage Nigerians to avoid being distracted by making caricature of other opponents but should focus on who is the best for Nigeria.

“I don’t think I think that it’s unfortunate that we often turn our opponents into caricatures, and I don’t think that’s necessary. What’s important to think about is not how can we demonize other opponents, but rather who is the best? And Peter Obi is by far the best.”

“One thing that is so significant is how he has changed, completely changed the political landscape in Nigeria. We’ve never had this kind of organic, grassroots enthusiasm from people all over the country. And most of all, we’ve never had the sense of hope.”

“I always believe that there is nothing more essential to the human spirit than hope. People might say cynically that hope doesn’t win elections, but actually it does, because what happens is that hope propels people.”
