Former Anambra State, Peter Obi, on Thursday declared his 2023 presidential bid.

The former governor disclosed this at a meeting with traditional rulers from the South-East on Thursday.

However, he is expected to make a formal declaration of his 2023 presidential bid on Friday.

Obi was former Vice President Atiku Abubakar’s running mate in the 2019 presidential election.

“I am here to notify our traditional rulers and seek their support on my intention to vie for the presidency in 2023.

“If elected as Nigeria’s President next year, I will create jobs, boost our economy and improve the quality of our education. I will turn around the country for the better and transform Nigeria from a consuming nation to a productive one.

“I have done a careful study of Nigeria and I can tell you that if I have the opportunity, I will turn around the country. And I’m using the example of what we have been able to do in Anambra state. There’s practically no difference between Anambra and Nigeria.”
