2023: What Peter Obi Said About Sacrificing For Nigeria's Survival

The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has stated that he is ready to sacrifice for the country’s survival.

Naija News reports that the Director, Strategic Communication, Peter Obi Support Network, Onwuasoanya Jones, made this known in a statement on Monday. Jones stated the former Anambra governor said this in a virtual interactive session with more than 1,000 members of his support group, Peter Obi Support Network. Obi reiterated his undying love for Nigeria and his unalterable belief in its indivisibility, adding that Nigeria can and will come out of the woods of failed political leadership. The LP Presidential candidate urged everyone, especially those in the diaspora, to contribute to Nigeria’s development in whatever capacity. He commended the efforts of diaspora Nigerians in developing the country and urged them not to relent because no matter how comfortable they get in another country, Nigeria will always be their home. 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. This is why I have continued to do whatever I can within my personal and group capabilities to support Nigeria’s march to greatness.” Obi said that he could have obtained resident permits and citizenship rights in any part of the world he wishes, but he has refused to do so because he believes in the Nigeria project. 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.”
