As the 2023 election approaches, Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, says he is not an Igbo candidate, but the most qualified of all the 18 presidential hopefuls.
Newsbreak.ng reports that during a visit of the former Anambra State governor to Media Trust office in Abuja recently, Obi urged Nigerians to vote for him because ‘I have the capacity, commitment, and qualification’.
“I am contesting as a Nigerian. I don’t want people to vote for me because I am an Igbo man or because I am from South East because people don’t buy bread cheaper because they are from that zone.
“I don’t want anybody to vote for me because I am a Christian; I don’t want them to vote because it is my turn, it is not inheritance. It is the turn of Nigerians to take back their country.
“I want them to vote for me because of character and competence, I have the capacity, I have the commitment, I am qualified,” he said.
