Veteran Nigerian actress, Patience Ozokwor, has expressed confidence in the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, to provide the right leadership for the nation.
Ozokwor, popularly known as Mama G added that if Nigeria had got leadership right, her material resources and endowment would have made the country stand out in the comity of nations.
According to PM News, Ozokwor made these remarks on Monday during the unveiling of the ‘Fund40MB Donation Campaign' launching for Peter Obi.
Mama G said that any donation for Peter Obi's campaign remained an investment Nigerian children and unborn children would later reap.
“We want anybody that loves Nigeria and wants everything good for Nigeria to please donate no matter how small. Children, youths and God want Obi.
“We have seen that Obi as a former governor is prudent with public funds and used same judiciously. He has credibility. We want him to come and change things and mend things.”
The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Ejezie Rollas, also spoke in his personal capacity and not for the AGN.
He said that many celebrities had stood aloof for long, unconcerned about politics, adding that this had led to many challenges facing the industry and complaints by practitioners.
Rollas threw his weight behind Obi’s presidential ambition and said that celebrities must be interested in making the nation work well for all and sundry.
Other celebrities in attendance include Klint De Drunk, John Okafor (Mr Ibu), Jerry Williams, Paul Obazele, Rita Arum, Joyce Kalu, Bishop Ime and Alex Osifo.
The Obi support groups in attendance include Like Minds for Peter Obi, Peter Obi Movement, and Peter Obi Support Network.
