"I said Obi said he wants to move Nigeria back from consumption to production and I said that is not true. He cannot do it because his own business survives on consumption. Is that a lie? He has been an importer and I said he deals with cash and carry economics; container economics, imports.
“All the goods that can be produced in Nigeria, Obi imports them in his supermarkets. That is consumption economics. That kind of person cannot tell you that he is moving you from consumption to production. He will then be committing self-economic su*cide and Obi will not do that to himself.
“So, Obi is deceiving everybody and I can’t take that back because that is true."

The former Anambra governor’s decision to pursue his presidential bid on the LP’s platform has not only brought the party to the national limelight but also ensured the conversations are not only about the ruling APC and the lead opposition PDP.

Obi’s supporters, who call themselves Obi-dients, are everywhere on social media, highlighting why the Anambra-born politician deserves to be elected as Nigeria’s number one citizen in 2023.

After months of being described as a mere social media movement with no physical political structure that can give Obi victory, Obi-dients have started organising “million-marches” across states to showcase their numerical strength and mobilisation power.
