Author, Chimamanda Adichie, has extolled the virtues of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, on his 61st birthday.
In a lengthy post on her Facebook page on Tuesday, Adichie recounted Obi’s relationship with her late parents and family.
She went on to talk about how she couldn’t wait to be able to call Obi her president.
Adichie said, “Happy Birthday to Peter Obi, my dearest Big Bro:
“I will never forget your kindness to my beloved parents. Thank you for the respect you showed them, for your many visits to Abba, where you gave to Daddy and Mummy the most precious gifts: your time and your attention.
“You are a good man. You are loved. You are appreciated.
“Mummy called you her ‘first son,’ my siblings and I call you our ‘big bro,’ and I cannot wait to call you ‘My President.’
“I cannot wait for February 25, 2023, when I, with personal pride in you and with hope for what Nigeria can become, will cast my vote for you and your running mate, Senator Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed.”
