Obi tasks rich Nigerians to do more for the poor in areas of water, education

Peter Obi, the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general elections, has charged Nigerian Muslims to use the window availed by Sallah to seek Allah’s intervention in Nigeria’s situation.

Obi charged the people not to allow the prevailing unprecedented hardship in the country to affect their spirit of love, brotherliness and peaceful co-existence

Rather Obi said the people should use this year’s Eid-El Fitri festivities to engender the spirit of oneness and also re-dedicate themselves to the virtues of love, patriotism and unity for the desired national development.

The former Anambra state governor in a message to Muslims noted that the two major faiths Christianity and Islam coming out of their fasting period should allow the solemnness of the holy months to influence their thoughts and actions in relating with one another and thinking about the future of the country.

Obi said that it’s discomforting the amount of blood being shed in this country daily and asked that the situation be taken to Allah for his prompt intervention.

The LP standard bearer said that the blood of thousands of innocent souls being wasted daily in our land at various troubled spots, particularly the stress of school children in the North, and the needless death of our troops should be enough mitigation to plead to God to save this country from destruction.

“An intense prayer for our dear country has become very necessary more than ever before as our nationhood is in dire need of divine intervention to survive,” he said.

“Our economy is already under severe stress, the currency is losing value daily, unemployment and inflation rising.”

A statement by Dr Yunusa Tanko, POMR Spokesman, said Obi finally implored the people not to despair and miss the essence and meaning of festivity and the divine succour it brings, assuring us that there is always a light at the end of every tunnel as a new Nigeria is still POssible.
