A Nigerian man has caused a stir online after donating his entire nine month savings to ensure the Labour Party (LP) flagbearer, Peter Obi emerges as president in 2023.
Naija News reports that in the post shared on Twitter, the man said he is donating the money to secure his unborn future generation.
He further urged the former Governor of Anambra State to ensure that he does not disappoint him and other Nigerian youths who believe in him.
He tweeted: “Am using my 9 months’ savings to secure my future generation yet unborn. Pls Peter Obi when you become president come 2023 election pls don’t disappoint me and other you that believes in you.”
This generated mixed reactions online as some Nigerians fault the man’s action, stating that it is a misplaced priority.

It is not an investment to your future… This parties have more than enough to run their campaign and don’t need individual funds. Since it’s voluntary I don’t have a problem but Imagine using that money to better your life and help your family members in need than donating to political parties. Misplaced priority
