Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, has said that forces opposed to the emergence of new Nigeria, are behind the various propaganda to blackmail him.
Obi stated this via his Twitter handle on Tuesday.
The former Governor of Anambra State, however, vowed never to give up in his quest to reclaim his stolen mandate irrespective of the antics of his detractors.
He urged his supporters to remain calm while efforts were on to restore his stolen mandate.
“I encourage Nigerians to remain calm and steadfast in the journey to reclaiming their mandate of a New Nigeria. I will never give up on this journey until victory is achieved.
“Beyond regaining our mandate, I am committed to lifting people out of poverty and I remain committed to transforming Nigeria starting from the North to every part of the nation.
“There may be more mud slinging from those who are against the emergence of the New Nigeria but, I would never be deterred by the obstacles along the way to victory. I have always lived my life in the most law abiding manner.”
He noted that as human, he was bound to err but added that he would never deliberately violate any law.
“Sometimes as humans, we make mistakes but, I will never knowingly break any law. I am therefore not afraid of the lies and propaganda against my person. They are part of the journey to a New Nigeria.”
