“I Am Truthfully And Wholly Committed To The Stand Of One Nigeria” – Peter Obi

During his speech on a special broadcast to mark the 2023 Armed Forces Remembrance, the Labour Party (LP), Presidential candidate, Peter Obi declared that he is committed to a united and one Nigeria.

Just before heading to the United Kingdom for his engagement at Chatham House, Obi speaking said he is offering himself to be the team leader of a new Nigeria where nobody regardless of their tribe or tongue will be estranged, marginalized, or excluded.

He pledged his commitment to engendering a country where equity, justice, and fairness rules, should he win the election.

“I Mr. Peter Obi, a proud Nigerian of Igbo extraction, am truthfully and wholly committed to the stand of One Nigeria.”

“It is worth calling a spade a spade, there are youths all over Nigeria who are frustrated because of injustice, poverty, lack of opportunities, employment, and apparent exclusion.”

“Such youths will seize any opportunity and use any tool to express their frustration and anger; I believe that some of those who are agitating are doing so partly due to failures of creating an inclusive and progressive Nigeria.”

“A working Nigeria, with equity, justice, and fairness will effectively checkmate extreme groups such as Boko Haram and ISWAP,” he said.

The carrot-and-stick approach is, in Obi’s opinion, the most effective way to deal with the issue that appears in the form of ambiguous nationalism, bigoted patriotism, and religious bigotry.

He went on to say that it is now more crucial than ever to build the nation and stabilize society.

Obi stressed that Nigeria must win over those that can be won over, by ensuring equity and justice dictates the way in which the country operates.
