”You are all partners in this great assignment of rescuing Nigeria by ensuring the election of Obi/Datti presidential ticket, come February 2023 by the grace of God.

”We key into realization of the dream of our principals of taking back Nigeria from consumption to production, unemployment to employment, insecurity to security.

”It is a big task but by the grace of God and support of the right thinking Nigerians like you, we shall win and all will end in praise,” Abafi said.
