The group’s National Convener, Chief Ugochukwu Orji, said that with Peter Obi’s unique leadership qualities, it was important members of the group take to the streets, market squares, Worship Centers, village squares, LGA Headquarters and states across the country in sensitising and educating Nigerians on why the likes of the former Anambra State Governor, Mr. Obi, deserves to rule Nigeria.
According to him, “we would be working across the 181 communities in the state, to garner support for Obi’s Presidential victory and ensure Nigerians see reasons why he deserves to rule the country.”

Senator Umeh who was also at the meeting and spoke, said those speculating that the LP Presidential Candidate, Mr. Obi’s structure for the election ends only on social media, are even helping to project the party and its candidate more for a landslide victory.
According to him, at the moment no political party in Nigeria, has a kind of structure the LP have for the election. Nigerians, especially, the youths irrespective of Ethnic, Political and Religion affiliations, are all out to vote Mr. Obi as the next President of Nigeria.
Umeh urged the group not to allow any selfish politicians influence them with any kind gesture that would create division among them.
