Iyom Josephine Ezeanyaeche, a 104-year-old woman, has expressed her support for Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to become the president in Saturday’s election.
Ezeanyaeche, popularly known as Mama Africa, during a visit to the LP’s office in Abuja, said Obi would make Nigeria an investment hub.
She said the endorsement of Obi to win the forthcoming election was given his qualification as the best out of the four major contestants.
She said, “The searchlight for his selection was nationally oriented and accepted for his visionary leadership, integrity, transparency, competence, capacity, character, selflessness, enlightenment, education, and nationalism.
“Calling him for this honourable task in our assessment will comfort Nigerians for a new beginning.
“Obi will fix the economy and create jobs, if the economy is fixed, it will be easier to tackle insecurity, fight corruption and improve the social well-being of the people.
“Peter Obi will passionately undertake major constitutional changes that will bring about the devotion of power, fiscal federation and entrenching of good governance and rule of law.”
Ezeanyaeche described Obi as having a great opportunity to change the course of the country’s future for good. And he has the character, competence and capacity to look at his previous achievements and previous performances.
She stated that Obi would unite the people of Nigeria in all ramifications to make Nigeria one united family.

She said that Nigerians are long yielding for the younger generation to take the mantle of leadership to rescue her from her current predicament.
She added, “Nigerians will be healed of the wounds caused by incompetent leadership.”
On his part, Mr Julius Abure, LP Chairman, thanked Ezeanyaeche for believing in Obi to transform Nigeria.
He said, “I, therefore, want to urge all our supporters that on the 25th of this month which is Saturday, they should all come out to cast their votes for the labour party.
Abure said that they had been assured by security agencies that they are on top of the matter.
He added, “I, therefore, want to use this opportunity to appeal to INEC that the standard they have laid, the integrity they have built over the year, they must crystalize it by their activities in this election.
“They must be patriotic and put the interest of the country first and beyond every other interest.
“They must avoid the temptation of allowing this election to be compromised.
