“He is not a new face, for anybody to say this is a new face, I don’t understand it. Because he is part of the process, he’s been governor for eight years.

“He has left a political party for another before he left for this.”

In October 2014, Obi left the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to the then-ruling party, citing the need to be a competitor and not a spectator in national affairs.

In 2018, Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the PDP, said he chose Obi as his running mate, owing to the former governor’s vast knowledge of the economy.
