Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party (LP), has promised to stay in Nigeria even if war breaks out there.
Obi declared that he would rather perish in Nigeria than live free in another nation in the event of a conflict.
He revealed this to more than a thousand members of his most important support network, the Peter Obi Support Network, during a virtual interactive session.
The former governor of Anambra State claimed that he purposefully avoided applying for citizenship and a resident visa from other nations because he has faith in Nigeria.
Obi claims: “I returned everything that belonged to them when I left the UK after living there for more than ten years.
“I am only focused on Nigeria, and I do not believe that I need citizenship or residency privileges in any other nation while I am still able to make use of my naturally occurring rights and privileges as a Nigerian.
“I will find a method to get back to Nigeria if there is a war there today because I would rather die in my nation, Nigeria, than live free in another man’s country,” a Nigerian said.
