Obi in a tweet on Monday, March 6, disclosed that he has visited the woman whom he described as an icon of Nigeria’s democracy.

She is my point of contact with every Nigerian who suffered a similar fate in their bid to exercise their voting rights, and contribute to a new Nigeria. Like many Nigerians, I acknowledge her bravery and resoluteness.
Jennifer is a true manifestation of Profiles in Courage for a new Nigeria,” the Labour Party flagbearer tweeted.
Obi who is a former governor of Anambra state came third in the poll with over six million votes.

In another report, Jennifer Efidi, dubbed by many as a hero of democracy, may fly out of the country after the election as her resilience caught the eye of a kind man.
Jennifer, a Nigerian woman, was attacked by thugs at the Nuru/Oniwo Ward, Polling Unit 065, in Surulere while waiting to vote on Saturday, February 25.
She, however, returned with bandages on her face after receiving treatment to cast her vote. Pictures of Jennifer casting her vote circulated on social media and earned her the admiration of Nigerians.
