O’Gersh shared a picture of himself at Uhuru Peak, next to the Labour Party flag on Tuesday saying, “On Fri, 20/10/2022 after 10½ hrs of climbing, hiking and trekking, I made it to the Uhuru Peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, 5,895m above sea level.
“There is no better place to announce the coming of a New Nigeria than the rooftop of Africa.”
Reacting to this gesture, Mr Obi in a brief statement on Thursday said, “I am always overwhelmed by the show of love and support from the OBIdients in Nigeria and Diaspora. Your many acts of sacrifices reassure me of your patriotism and flaming desire to take back your country for good.

Mr Obi further noted that though the 2023 journey may be a though one, still the he, his running mate, the Labour Party and the Obidients will not stop, till the movement gets to the top which would be the winning of the forthcoming election.
