Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) nominee for president, has said he is willing to make sacrifices to ensure the survival of the nation.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, Onwuasoanya Jones, Director of Strategic Communication for the Peter Obi Support Network, announced this in a statement on Monday.
According to Jones, the former governor of Anambra made this statement during a virtual interactive meeting with more than a thousand members of his support network, the Peter Obi Support Network.
Obi reaffirmed his unwavering love and conviction in Nigeria’s unity and added that the country can and will emerge from the shadow of its failing political leadership.
Everyone, especially those in the diaspora, was exhorted by the LP presidential candidate to make some kind of contribution to Nigeria’s growth.
He praised the diaspora Nigerians’ efforts to develop the nation and advised them not to give up since, no matter how at ease they get abroad, Nigeria will always be their home.
He said, “I love Nigeria irrevocably, and I believe no matter how far we travel or how successful we become outside Nigeria, we can never have another country to call our own but Nigeria. This is why I have continued to do whatever I can within my personal and group capabilities to support Nigeria’s march to greatness.”
Obi said that he could have obtained resident permits and citizenship rights in any part of the world he wishes, but he has refused to do so because he believes in the Nigeria project.
Obi said, “When I left the UK after residing there for over 10 years, I returned everything that belonged to them. I have a singular focus on Nigeria, and I do not think I need the citizenship or residence rights of any other country when I haven’t finished exploiting my nature-given rights and privileges as a Nigerian.
“If I am out of Nigeria today and there is a war in Nigeria, I will find a way to return to Nigeria because I will rather die in my country, Nigeria, than live free in another man’s country.”
