The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has said a united, secure and productive Nigeria was possible to achieve.
Obi who was rounding up his trip to Frankfurt, Rome, Toronto and other countries, said such was the collective dream of all Nigerians.
The former governor of Anambra said this in a series of tweets thanking the Nigerians he had interacted with during his foreign trips.
He wrote, “I am profoundly grateful to my fellow Nigerians whom I met and interacted with in Frankfurt, Rome, Toronto, Los Angeles, Houston, Charlotte, Washington D.C, Atlanta and New York. Your warmth and collective graciousness has been elating; and your passion for rescuing Nigeria, inspiring.
“Your best wishes and prayers continue to uplift me. As I return home after eight days on the road, I do so with a renewed sense of purpose and conviction.
“My takeaway is that a united, secure and productive Nigeria, which is our collective dream is possible. It is a dream we intend to bring to actualization. Thank you all for the quality time; expressed confidence and suggestions. Thank you for believing that a new Nigeria is possible.”
During one of the trips, Obi stated that he had no plans to steal public money, adding that God should punish him and his children if he ever tried such.
He said, “If I take public money that I’m not entitled to, God should punish my children and me, not because of anything but God gave me enough.
“I say to people, President Biden is worth 8.9 million USD. Why should somebody like me steal public money when I am richer than the American President? I am already over-blessed by God. We just need to develop our country.
“I’m not looking for a private jet, sophisticated house or to buy a house in America because I can’t live in America.
“What we are doing is not about the normal politics or contesting elections.”
