Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi has expressed confidence that he would be the President of Nigeria.
He however said he was not in a hurry to achieve the dream.

Speaking on Friday during the unveiling of the book, Peter Obi: many voices, one perspective, Obi stressed the need to always stand for the truth in the quest to build a new Nigeria.

He also pledged to accept the decision of the judiciary.

He said: “I’ll always insist on what is right. When I was impeached as governor, people asked me to do this and that, I said no. I won’t give money to do the wrong thing.

“Again, I had never met with Mahoud Yakubu, since he became the head of INEC. Although I was together with him as the chairman in a committee but I don’t need to meet him because he has only one vote which he can cast to anyone.

“If he wants to do what is wrong, no problem. One day, this thing we are doing in this country will consume all of us.

He added: “I’m in this journey anyone that thinks I’m on transit is joking. I must be the president of this country. If it’s not today, it will be tomorrow. I’m not in a hurry. I’m not desperate.

“We must fix this country. I have only one passport. if anyone thinks that Peter Obi will run away, is wasting his time.


“I’m in court now, whatever decision of the court, I’ll respect it. I’m not going to riot after which we’ll continue. But I know we’re committed to the destiny of this nation, when it’s God’s time it’ll happen

Appreciating the OBIdients for their understanding and perseverance, Obi insisted that his softness and apologetic disposition remained the way to go and sign of discipline and responsibility.


“We’re trying to build a new Nigeria and that new Nigeria must be ready to say sorry, even if they are right. We need to start thinking about what are we going to do to have a better country”.

Chairman, Obi of Onitsha and Anambra State Traditional Rulers Council, Alfred Nnaemeka Achebe, described Obi as a man of destiny, whose progress in life reflects the hand of God upon him.

“It’s not by his works or by his power,” he submitted.

Lead Editor of the book, Prof. Chinyere Stella Okunna described the piece as capturing everything about the man, Peter Obi.


She said: “We are not saying that Peter Obi is a saint. But he stands out in integrity. Nigeria is richly blessed if this man becomes President”.

“Whatever we realise here will be channelled into the on-going litigation. I am hopeful that the litigation will end well; and the truth will come out”.
