When I spoke about boycotting my conference activities this morning to join the @PeterObi 1 million man match, some thought I was just pulling some publicity stunts for Peter Obi, but am glad I proved them wrong once again. We're marching for our future.#1MillionMarch4PeterObi pic.twitter.com/HEhDT6lvY7— Chigozie I. Alex 4 Peter Obi🇳🇬 (@ChigozieIAlex) May 21, 2022

Was a success. Thank you to all that made it possible. I left the PDP secretariat Umuahia without no payment but fulfilment of purpose. I feel involved and I can't ask for a better experience. pic.twitter.com/4aPut71mE3
