The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has insisted he will not abandon Nigeria if war breaks out in the country.
According to Obi, he would prefer to die in Nigeria, than be a free man in another country.
He disclosed this during a virtual interactive session with more than 1,000 members of his foremost support group, the Peter Obi Support Network.
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.”
The presidential candidate appealed to Nigerians in the diaspora to contribute to the country’s development.
