Famed among Nigerian youths, who dubbed themselves #Obidients, Mr Obi’s journey to the presidency has reached the far ends of the international media such as BBC, CNN Aljazeera, France 24, The Economist, New York Times, and so on.

This means Peter Obi will have to work thrice as hard compared to his opponents. His victory will be a miracle. Featured Image Source: The Head Bridge
