The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in the February 25 presidential election, Peter Obi, has said that nobody can force him to flee Nigeria.
Obi stated this when he spoke at the Onitsha Holiday Resort, Onitsha, on Thursday, April 13, where he appealed to the voters in this Saturday’s supplementary election in Ogbaru Federal Constituency to conduct themselves peacefully.
The former Anambra state governor mentioned that his party is committed to creating a new Nigeria, adding that there are too many “thieves” who are inflicting suffering on the masses, and vowed that his party is committed to purging the country’s political system of such people. He said he will not give up until such people are shown the way out of political offices in the country.
“There is too much suffering in this country, and, that is what we, in Labour Party, are fighting to end. There are many thieves in the country. So, Labour Party is fighting to create a new Nigeria. I am here with you, and nobody is going to force me to leave Nigeria”, Obi insisted.
INEC had after the February 25 presidential and National Assembly Polls declared the election in Ogbaru federal constituency inconclusive, citing the inability of the commission to conduct an election in about 45 polling units, stating that it could not deploy electoral materials in some of them due to violence while election in some was cancelled as a result of malpractices.
