He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, his decision to accept the nomination was borne out of his commitment to rescuing Nigeria, and he is certain that he won’t regret the move.
He added that Obi and other Labour party stakeholders also played a major role in his decision as he buys into their agenda and movement of getting Nigeria to where it should be.
His words, “My task here today is simple and it is to accept my nomination but just before I do that, I should give justifications as follows.”
“The undeniable and unchallengeable fundamental reason for being on this ticket is to rescue Nigeria.”
“And it goes logically without saying that you can only rescue that which is in trouble and Nigeria is in trouble and I cannot afford not to be part of the movement to rescue Nigeria.”
“The second reason is that I believe in the greatness of Nigeria. I believe there will be peace and prosperity, and I believe Nigeria people will unite.”
“Having come from the education sector and background, when I hear a valuable thing I know it and I cannot let it pass. The comment from our presidential candidate that the fertile land in the north is the crude oil of Nigeria is one.”
“How much more nationalist and detribalised can you (Obi) be? I see a brighter future for Nigeria from such a comment. He is someone of integrity and capacity.”
“This is a high point in my life and career. Having said this and with all trust in Almighty Allah and my belief in Nigeria and with all humility, I accept the generous nomination to be the vice-presidential candidate of the Labour party for the 2023 general election.”
