The presidential candidate of the Labour Party(LP), Peter Obi has identified those who he said are those against his presidential bid.
According to him, they are those who brought Nigeria and Nigerians to the current economic and socio-political problems.
Peter Obi, who spoke shortly after signing the condolence register of the late President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Professor George Obiozor, at the National Secretariat of the Igbo socio-cultural organization in Enugu, the Enugu state capital, said that he is not surprised that some people are against his presidential ambition.
“Some people have a structure that has brought us to this juncture where we produce 133 million people who are poor; where our primary health care has collapsed; where we have 20 million out-of-school children; where we have almost 40 per cent unemployment, with 60 per cent youth unemployment, and where we have the highest youth job prevent in the world.
“So, they will not support me but I urge all of us to remember that we need to build a new Nigeria. Nobody is against me, what people have is a different opinion which is allowed in a democratic dispensation.”
The Labour Party flag bearer said that it would be dangerous to have the support of all Nigerians in his quest to be the next president in 2023.
“What is happening is that some people have different opinions, everybody should not support me and everybody will not support me. In fact, if everybody supports me, there is danger. Some will disagree.
