Speaking at the rally, Jeremiah Peter who spoke on behalf of all the Obi's supporters in the state said that the roadshow was organised to inform the people of Adamawa that only Obi has the key to saving the children of the poor.
Peter noted that having Obi as a preferred presidential candidate for the 2023 general election is based on his competence, credentials, age and what he would be bringing to the table.
He suggested that Obi's capabilities and qualities even during his time as Anambra state's governor have placed him above other contestants.
Peter urged Nigerians to vote for candidates based on their qualities and not ethnicity, region or religion.
