The Labor Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has said there will be danger if the whole world starts to support his presidential ambition.
However, he pointed out that those who led Nigeria and Nigerians into the current economic and socio-political problems were the ones who did not support him.
Obi, speaking in Enugu, the capital of Enugu state, shortly after signing the condolence register of the late Ohanaeze Ndigbo Chairman General Professor George Obiozor at the Ohanaeze National Secretariat, dispelled the idea that some politicians in the southeast were not supporting him.
“What is happening is that some people have different opinions, everyone should not support me and everyone will not support me. In fact, if everyone supports me, there is danger. Some will disagree.
“Some people have a structure that has brought us to this situation where we produce 133 million poor people; where our primary health care has collapsed; where we have 20 million children without schooling; where we have almost 40 percent unemployment, with 60 percent youth unemployment, and where we have the highest youth unemployment rate in the world.
“So, they won’t support me, but I urge everyone to remember that we need to build a new Nigeria. Nobody is against me, what people have is a different opinion that is allowed in a democratic regime, ”he said.
Paying enthusiastic tributes to the late leader Ohanaeze, the former governor of Anambra State who is the first to sign Obiozor’s condolence register at the secretariat, said his passing had created a sense of loss for every Igbo person because of his contributions to the Igbo progress. nation.
He said: “I feel very sad that he died at this very difficult time for our nation. If you know Professor Obiozor and his contributions over the years to our country, Nigeria and the South East, you know that every Igbo feels a sense of loss, but we cannot question God.”
