ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- I will rather die in my country, Nigeria, than live free in another man’s country, says Mr. Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate.
The former Anambra State Governor explained that he loves Nigeria and can never have another country to call our own but Nigeria, regardless how successful he is in another country.
“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,” 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.”
The presidential hopeful noted that he has continued to do whatever he can within his personal and group capabilities to “support Nigeria’s march to greatness.”
Obi stated this in a virtual meeting with members of his support group, the Peter Obi Support Network, on Monday.
“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“, he added.
Mr Obi has gained major acceptance among young Nigerians who see him as a better alternative to other candidates contesting for Nigeria’s top job.
His campaign runs on the energy of young Nigerians who dud themselves “Obidient” followers on social media.
