If opponents come at us through land, sea or air, we’re ready to respond – Peter Obi
The Labour Party presidential candidate in the 2023 presidential election, Peter Obi, has urged his supporters to remain calm and have faith as that he will reclaim the mandate from president-elect, Bola Tinubu.
He stated this via his Twitter account on Tuesday, April 18, adding that he never expected the journey to having a new Nigeria to be an easy one.
Obi noted that if the those in the old order come at him and his supporters either by land, air or sea, then they will respond in the same manner.
The former governor of Anambra state reiterated his commitment to a “Nigeria that will be beneficial to every Nigerian”.
He said; “I encourage Nigerians to remain calm and steadfast in the journey to reclaiming their mandate of a New Nigeria. I will never give up on this journey until victory is achieved.
I never expected the journey to a New Nigeria to be an easy one. The forces, who had over the years, lived off the old order, are bound to fight back, as is being experienced now.
If they come at us through land, air and sea, we will respond to them through land, air and sea but, we will remain law abiding and will never give up on the nation. We are on the right path and we will remain committed to the course.
I reiterate my commitment to building a Nigeria that will be beneficial to every Nigerian. The struggle to reclaim this mandate is not about me as a person but, about millions of Nigerians who placed their trust in me through their votes.
The millions of Nigerians who voted for me did not just cast their votes but, they invested their hopes in me and they deserve justice. So, we must stay the course.
Beyond regaining our mandate, I am committed to lifting people out of poverty and I remain committed to transforming Nigeria starting from the North to every part of the nation.
There may be more mud slinging from those who are against the emergence of the New Nigeria but, I would never be deterred by the obstacles along the way to victory. I have always lived my life in the most law abiding manner.
Sometimes as humans, we make mistakes but, I will never knowingly break any law. I am therefore not afraid of the lies and propaganda against my person. They are part of the journey to a New Nigeria. -PO”
