I Am Contesting As A Nigerian
Meanwhile, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has come out to clear the air about contesting as a Nigerian and not as a Biafra agitator.
According to him, he is running for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as a Nigerian.
Obi cleared the air that he wasn’t contesting in support of any Biafra agitation because according to him Biafra war stopped existing about 52 years ago and it has remained so for him.
Naija News reports that the Labour Party flag bearer made this pronouncement when he was featured on Brekete Family Show in Abuja on Monday.
His reaction was against the backdrop of the agitation of the sovereign state of Biafra which is popular among some sections of the South East region.
