The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi says he is contesting as a Nigerian, adding that his presidency would not support the realisation of Biafra.
Obi made this known in an interview with Brekete Family Show in Abuja on Monday, when asked if as president, he would push for Biafran Republic. He said “Biafra war ceased to exist about 52 years ago and it remains so. I am a Nigerian. I am contesting as a Nigerian.”
“I’ve said that those who are agitating, be it those who are agitating in South-West, South-East or in the North. There is agitation everywhere because of the injustice, unfairness, marginalisation, poverty, call it any name. People are bound to agitate.”
The former Anambra State governor said that if elected president, his only interest was in a new Nigeria for all, reiterating his promise to dialogue with all agitators across the country.
“I said I will consult and discuss with all of them (agitators). A new Nigeria is what I want to build and people will be proud. That’s why I said, I will solve the problems of the North, South-West. I want Nigerians to move around with their passports proud that they are Nigerians.”
