Peter Obi: Why some people are against me

The Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, has stated that there will be danger if everyone begins to support his presidential ambition.

He did, however, point out that those who brought Nigeria and Nigerians to their current economic and sociopolitical problems were not supporting him.

Obi, who spoke in Enugu, the Enugu State capital, shortly after signing the condolence register of late Ohanaeze Ndigbo President General, Prof George Obiozor, at the Ohanaeze National Secretariat, dispelled the notion that some politicians in the South-East were not behind him.

He said: “What is happening is that some people have different opinions, everybody should not support me and everybody will not support me. In fact, if everybody supports me, there is danger. Some will disagree.

“Some people have a structure that has brought us to this juncture where we produce 133 million people who are poor; where our primary health care has collapsed; where we have 20 million out-of-school children; where we have almost 40 per cent unemployment, with 60 percent youth unemployment, and where we have the highest youth job prevent in the world.

“So, they will not support me but I urge all of us to remember that we need to build a new Nigeria. Nobody is against me, what people have is a different opinion which is allowed in a democratic dispensation.”
