The presidential flag bearer of the Labour Party, Peter Obi has stated that he loves Nigeria and prefers dying in the country war than staying alive in another country.
The former state governor made this known while addressing members of his support in a virtual meeting.
Peter Obi said “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,”
“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.”
He further stated: “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.”
