Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has expressed unflinching love for his country, Nigeria.

Obi in a virtual interaction with more than 1,000 members of his support group, the Peter Obi Support Network, expressed optimism that Nigeria can fix its leadership problem.

He called on every Nigerian, especially those residing abroad to play their role in whatever capacity they can to ensure the country grows.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Director, Strategic Communication, Peter Obi Support Network, Onwuasoanya Jone, on Monday.

Obi recalled how he relocated to Nigeria after spending 10 years in the United Kingdom to contribute his part to Nigeria’s development.

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.”

He said that he refused to obtain a resident permit or citizenship in any country because of his belief in the Nigeria project.

Obi added, “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.”
