I have a sense of fulfilment for joining politics, this is just the beginning — Peter Obi



Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), says he will not stop seeking elective office until he “dismantles the crime scene” in Nigeria.


Obi spoke on Saturday during an event to celebrate Black History Month at Oxford University.


Obi said he left a huge financial investment to join politics and contest for the 2003 Anambra governorship election.


The former Anambra governor said despite his financial loss, he has a sense of fulfilment that he joined politics to change certain things.

“Looking back now, as difficult as it is and with all the things I have lost, I have a sense of fulfilment that at least I can say I change this and change that,” he said.


“As I was coming here today somebody asked me how do you feel about contesting the election for the office of the president and what has happened.


“I said let me tell you, this is just the beginning, we won’t stop until we dismantle that crime scene. That is basically how I feel.


“For me, we need to all come together to make Africa, including Nigeria, work and collectively, the black world.”


Obi said Africa is the “most unexplored and unproductive” continent in the world.


He added that what is lacking in the development of Africa is leadership, noting the continent can be turned around within a small space of time.


Asked to react to the recent supreme court judgement on his appeal, the LP presidential candidate declined to comment, saying he would write down his thoughts later.

  1. Obi, I think you lost the election because many people were scared of Igbo and their Biafra agenda. But I believe in you and plans not just for Nigeria but for the black race. Trust me Obi I always admire your way of reasoning. Best wishes
