"My support for Obi is not because he is an Igbo man. It is because I am convinced that based on his past antecedents and manifesto, he is better placed to make a better president than his contemporaries.

"There is much suffering in the land. Things have really fallen apart. The economy is bad; businesses are not moving fine. Civil servants and pensioners are suffering, and school leavers are not getting jobs. Therefore, the country needs a president, who is mentally, emotionally and physically and intellectually fit to pull the country out of such messy situation.

"I am proud and happy about the enormous support Obi is enjoying across Nigeria. This further heightens my belief that he is the candidate beat."

While assuring that she would deploy her contacts and resources to mobilise support for the LP candidate, Ezeugwu, a former councillor in Nkpologwu, Uzo-Uwani LGA of Enugu State, urged Nigerians to go all out to get their PVCs, cast their votes accordingly, and ensure that their votes count.

She called on the candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu; the candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and others, to allow the southeast to produce Buhari's successor; based on equity, justice and fair play; and based on the fact that other regions have taken their turns at different times.
