Nigeria: I Will Be President – Peter Obi

Presidential candidate of Labour Party in the 2023 general elections, Mr. Peter Obi, has expressed optimism that he would eventually become the president of Nigeria.

He also assured that he would accept the decision of the court in his petition against the declaration of the candidate of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as winner of the presidential election by INEC.

The former Anambra state governor however said he is not desperate in his quest to lead the country as president.

He spoke during the unveiling of a book titled; “Peter Obi: Many Voices, One Perspective” authored by three media professionals led by a renowned professor of Mass Communication, Stella Chinyere Okunna in Awka, Anambra State yesterday.

Obi emphasised the need for everyone to always stand for the truth in the quest to build a new Nigeria.

He said, “I’ll always insist on what is right. When I was impeached as governor, people asked me to do this and that, I said no. I won’t give money to do the wrong thing.

“Again, I had never met with Mammood Yakubu since he became the head of INEC. Although I was with him as the chairman in a committee, I didn’t need to meet him because he has only one vote which he can cast to anyone.

“If he wants to do what is wrong, no problem. One day, this thing we are doing in this country will consume all of us.

He added, “I’m in this journey. Anyone that thinks I’m on transit is joking. I must be the president of this country. If it’s not today, it will be tomorrow. I’m not in a hurry. I’m not desperate.
