He has a good profile and appears smart but he wont win, Besides, we have a lot talkers no action in this govt already ;)
I heard/read he did well in his debate but the anambra voters did not watch the debate or do not care about debate. Maybe if their local radio station aired it in igbo then there would have been a 5% chance for him.
