In the statement he titled: ‘My observations, my reservation’, he said: “Any plan to rig this 2023 presidential election against the wish of this massive youth movement all over the country will cause doom in this nation.”
Chibuike further said: “Today I was opportuned to participate in the Abuja 5 million man match rally for Peter Obi, and I could see thousands and millions of resilient young men and women ready to take back their country, any attempt to manipulate their wish will not go down well in this country.
“I could see the energy, I could see the resilience, I could see the determination, I could see the commitment, I could see the readiness; and above all, I could see God at work in this movement.
“A new Nigeria is possible come 2023!”
