Ngige who spoke to journalists at his Abuja residence on Sunday, February 10, also said that contrary to public perception, Obi did not do well as governor of Anambra state.
He went on to say he would battle Obi for votes even in Anambra Central Senatorial district where the PDP VP candidate may have more popularity.
