It was a shocking development to the 'Obidient family' as the Anambra born-business billionaire, Prince Arthur Eze, has disassociated himself from Peter Obi’s 2023 presidential ambition and publicly withdrawn his support from Peter Obi's ambition.
Eze, made his position known recently, at the occasion of the 2022 Ofala festival of HRH Igwe (Dr.) Robert Eze, the traditional ruler of Ukpo in Dunukofia local government area of Anambra State.
He said, “I warned Peter Obi to withdraw from this race but he would not listen. I told him plainly that I am not part of his plans. I told him to drop his ambition, and wait for next time.
“When he told me about his ambition, I asked him the states he thinks he can win in the west and in the north – he told me; but I was not convinced. I told him he cannot not win; so that he would not waste his time and money.”
Pointing at Governor Soludo, Eze, continued: “This is the person we are tipping to take over as Nigerian president of Igbo extraction in the time to come. We have a presidential candidate that we are supporting now. After his tenure, he will hand over to Soludo as president.”
It will be recalled that Obi visited Eze in August to market his presidency ambition and to solicit for his financial supports.
