The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, says he must be the president of Nigeria either now or in the future.
Speaking on Friday at a book presentation in Awka, the Anambra capital, Obi said it might be today or in the future – but he was sure that he would be the president of Nigeria.
“Anyone who thinks I’m on transit is wasting his time. Let me tell you, I must be the president of this country. I’m sure of that. If it is not today, it must be tomorrow,” Daily Trust quoted Obi as saying.
“Other people who want to be, should come and tell us what they want to do, and how to do it. This is my country, I don’t have dual citizenship. If anyone thinks I am going to run away from Nigeria, they are lying.
“I have three engagements in Anambra and Lagos today. I will be speaking in Lagos tonight. We will not leave Nigeria. I am not in a hurry to become the president, but I know it must happen.
