Obi spoke while x-raying his chances of securing maximum votes in the southwest in the 2023 election.

Obi, who is the Pro-Chancellor of the university, stated that he had proved he could do the job, adding: “And my promise is a promise: that I will deliver. It is for us to look at our promises and how we will be able to deliver in parts.”

“The job requires a lot of phys­ical and mental energy; it’s for you to assess who is most likely to do the job.”

“It’s not acceptable, we will pull people out of poverty, we will work hard to remove Nigeria from con­sumer to producer, we will support the private sector, which in turn will provide more jobs for our youths.”

Meanwhile, the APC has said it will record landslide victory in the South-West for its presidential candidate, Sen. Bola Tinubu in the 2023 general elections.

r Isaac Kekemeke, APC National Vice Chairman, South-West, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Akure.

Kekemeke agreed that the APC lost narrowly to the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) in Oyo and Ondo states in the 2019 presidential election “because of some disunity in the house.”

But he described the success of the PDP in the two states as accidental victories which should not be used to predict the 2023 presidential election results “because the APC had waxed stronger ever after.

“The PDP should know that it was a one-chance victory because in the 2020 governorship election in Ondo state, we beat them in almost all the local government areas of the state.

“We had an unprecedented outstanding governorship victory in 2020 because the factors that militated against our success in those states in 2019 were no longer in place.

“So if they talk about 2019, good sense of simple arithmetics should make them to remember Ondo 2020. They are holding on to 2019 but have forgotten the 2020 elections,” he stated.

According to the APC stalwart, the 2020 governorship election victory of the party shows that factors that responsible for the accidental victory of the PDP in 2019 have been settled.

He boasted that the 2020 victory of the APC at the gubernatorial election in Ondo state would be child’s play compared to the landslide victory that the party would record in the entire South-West in 2023 “because all the odds are now against the PDP.

“We are not divided. Our wall is not broken, so no lizard can enter like they did in 2019 when there was a crack.

“ They were like lizards that came to play on the opening but that opening is now closed. It was not just closed today but in 2020 and they saw the result in Ondo.

“Even their recent victory in Osun is not a yardstick to measure the PDP’s popularity in the state. We have an ongoing case at the Election Petitions Tribunal, and we are confident of reclaiming our mandate very soon,” the APC stalwart said.
