A former World Bank vice president, Arunma Oteh has declared support for Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

According to Oteh who revealed her stance in a series of tweet on Sunday, noted that she could not remain apolitical due to recent economic situation of Nigeria.

Explaining further, she said that she had worked with Peter Obi and she is convinced that he is a better candidate to lead Nigeria.

Her tweets read: “My choice is unequivocal and this is based on Peter Obi’s stellar track record. I had the honour to serve with him on Nigeria’s Economic Management Team chaired by the President and so my basis is not hearsay. He stands out, and Nigeria is in a desperate situation. “The stakes for Nigeria are too high. I cannot, in good conscience, sit on the fence. The situation is desperate and Nigerians will need to work hard to #TakeBackNaija.”

“No country can afford corruption, and certainly not Nigeria, a nation of 200 million with 100 million living in poverty almost 62 years post-independence despite huge resources and enormous talent.”
