Peter Obi Reveals Why Why Some People Are Against Him

Mr. Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s nominee for president, has warned that there may be danger if everyone starts to support his bid.

However, he pointed out that those who had contributed to Nigeria’s and Nigerians’ present economic and sociopolitical issues were not behind him.

Obi, who spoke in Enugu, the Enugu State capital, shortly after signing the condolence register of late President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prof George Obiozor, at the National Secretariat of Ohanaeze, dispelled the notion that some politicians in the South-East were not supporting him.

He said;

“What is happening is that some people have different opinions, everybody should not support me and everybody will not support me. In fact, if everybody supports me, there is danger. Some will disagree.

“Some people have a structure that has brought us to this juncture where we produce 133 million people who are poor; where our primary health care has collapsed; where we have 20 million out-of-school children; where we have almost 40 per cent unemployment, with 60 per cent youth unemployment, and where we have the highest youth job prevent in the world.

“So, they will not support me but I urge all of us to remember that we need to build a new Nigeria. Nobody is against me, what people have is different opinion which is allowed in a democratic dispensation,” 

Paying glowing tributes to the late Ohanaeze leader, the former Anambra State governor who is the first to sign Obiozor’s condolence register at the secretariat, said his demis3 had created a sense of loss to every Igbo person owing to his contributions to the progress of the Igbo nation.

“I feel very sad that he di3d this very trying time of our nation. If you know Prof Obiozor and his contributions over the years to our country, Nigeria and to the South-East, you will know that every Igbo person feels a sense of loss but we cannot question God.”
