The Northern Elders Forum says Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, won’t support any action aimed at dividing Nigeria if elected president in 2023.
NEF spokesman, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, who stated this added that Nigeria will not be divided if the LP presidential hopeful fails to win the 2023 presidential election.
He stressed that no presidential candidate would embark on dividing the country if elected in 2023.
The NEF spokesman was reacting to a Twitter user who expressed fears that the LP presidential candidate will divide the country if he becomes the president in 2023.
The Twitter user @AnthonyAnya33, tweeted: “I understand why you’re scared… he will divide the country but ask yourself what if he fails to win do you think the country will remain one?”
Baba-Ahmed in his reaction tweeted, “I am afraid you are wrong on both counts. Not Obi, no candidate will divide the country when he becomes President, unless he deliberately chooses to govern in a manner that infinitely dwarfs the current administration’s record.
“The country will not divide if Obi does not win either.”
