A Nigerian man who lives in Dubai has revealed that he flew back to the country for the 2023 general elections.
The software developer known as Mac Donald said he is traveling to vote for the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
According to the young man, he and about 19 others stormed the international airport to head back for the presidential polls which comes up on February 25th.
Mac Donald with Twitter username @iboboi007, shared a photo of himself at the airport with other people believed to be Nigerians pushing their luggage.
He wrote; “About 20 of us that wants good governance are currently at the airport, coming back by exactly 18:45 today to vote for H.E Peter Obi. Nobody has monopoly of traveling to vote… We are taking back Nigeria from evil minded fellows.”
Meanwhile, Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential flagbearer has said that unlike some of his political opponents, he will not steal public funds, rather he would be committed to the development of the country.
He stated this on Saturday, while pledging that if elected the president of Nigeria he will be prudent in the management of public funds.
This was in response to the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, who described Obi as a stingy man that could not be trusted with the future of the nation.
Obi, speaking during his presidential campaign rally in Akure, the Ondo State said the country would be safer in the hands of a stingy man like him.
He said; “Yes they said l am stingy, but we are not out to steal the nation’s wealth. All we want to do is to use the nation’s money for our people and development of this country.
“They said that I’m stingy; we want stingy people now, so that we can keep the money. We want to make sure we use your money to transform the country. This election that is coming now, don’t vote for anybody because of tribe but vote for someone that will move the country forward.
“We don’t want anybody to say that it is my turn; we want to change Nigeria for better. Our children will be in school, we don’t want people to run out of Nigeria again. We want to structure Nigeria for development. So, go and pick your PVCs and vote for Labour Party and make sure that they count the vote.”
