Desperate politicians sowing seeds of discord among Nigerians –Obi

Desperate politicians sowing seeds of discord among Nigerians –Obi

Presidential Candidate of Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 presidential election, Peter Obi, has accused desperate politicians in the country of sowing seeds of discord among Nigerians in a bid to cause a division in the country.

Obi who made the allegations while addressing Muslim faithful as they marked the Sallah holiday on Sunday in Onitsha, Anambra State, said as a believer in the Nigerian project, he would continue to “believe in the oneness of Nigeria as an entity, irrespective of tribe and religion.”

 “I’m here today to celebrate with you on this year’s occasion. Nigeria is one country.

I’m one Nigerian who believes in Nigeria, and also that we are one, irrespective of tribe and religion,” the former Anambra State governor said.

“The only thing that brings division among us is politics.

Once it’s time for election, some politicians engage in divisive campaign, but it should not be so.

One of my businesses is run by a northerner from Kano, and the business is doing well.

Nigerians are one but once politics come on stream, some desperate politicians who want to reap from where they did not sow would try to divide the citizens along tribal and religious lines.

“I have never discriminated against anyone on basis of religion, and I will never do that. You all are my brothers, and I am your brother.

Today is not for politics but for celebration. I came after election because if I came during politics, people would have said it is because I am running to be president.

“No one has supported the Muslim community in Anambra like myself.

This Mosque was demolished at some point, but when I became Governor I rebuilt it the way it is today. We see you as part of us, and I want to assure you that no one can stop you from living here and carrying out your businesses.

“I live here in Onitsha, and if there is any need to contact me, always do so.

If you need me in the area of healthcare and education, feel free to call on me because those are areas I’m very passionate about,” Obi added
