Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party (LP), has stated he won’t leave Nigeria if war breaks out there.
If war should break out, Obi stated he would rather perish in Nigeria than live free in another nation.
He revealed this to more than a thousand members of his most important support network, the Peter Obi Support Network, during a virtual interactive session.
The former governor of Anambra State claimed that he purposefully avoided gaining citizenship and a residence visa from other nations because he has faith in Nigeria.
According to Obi: “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.”
The presidential candidate appealed to Nigerians in the diaspora to contribute to the country’s development.
