The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi on Sunday called on the General Public to disregard reports that he hates ‘Northerners’.
Speaking to the Muslim community at the Central Mosque, Onitsha, Anambra State on Sunday, Obi stated that he loves every Nigerian.
The LP Presidential candidate in his statement said he has never discriminated against anyone based on religion or tribe and will never do so.
Obi said: “I am a Nigerian who believes in Nigeria. My ADC when I was Governor, Idris, is a Northerner from Kano State, and he is a good man. I have never discriminated against anyone based on religion or tribe, and I will never do that.”
“I want the whole nation to hold me accountable on this. I will never discriminate against anybody. I will continue to support you, especially in areas of education, health and your worship.”
“Please disregard anyone who tells you that I do not like the Northerners. I love every Nigerian.”
