Mr Peter Obi, a former presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) has reacted to rising poverty and hunger in the country.

Obi spoke at an online event.

He reminded Nigerians that no religion, ethnicity, or political party can buy food at a lower price in any Nigerian market.

Obi urged Nigerians to work together to shift the country’s focus from consumption to production for the benefit of society.

The former Anambra State governor claimed in a post on his X account on Monday.

According to LP’s past presidential candidate, Nigeria’s numerous issues as a nation may be overcome by unity of effort, teamwork, and mutual respect.

He said:

“In continuation of my Easter Sunday activities yesterday evening, after sharing the Easter joys with the inmates of Onitsha Correctional Centre, yesterday, I was at the Central Mosque, Onitsha to pray with the Muslim Community in the City who are in the last ten days of the Ramadan fasting.
It was heartwarming to see how they were able to judiciously deploy the little resources I gave them last year for the renovation of their mosque.
“I took time to remind them, and indeed every Nigerian, of the need to rise above religion and tribe, but in unity and brotherly love, continue to work hard for the development of our dear nation.
“Our many challenges in our nation can be conquered by a unity of efforts, collaboration, and mutual respect. As I have always maintained, no religion, tribe, or political party buys food cheaper in any market anywhere in Nigeria.
“We must, therefore, join hands in moving our nation from consumption to production, for the good of society. I shared my little Easter gifts, and Financial support with the community and appreciated them for their kind words, encouragement, and prayers.
“Together as one, we will build the New Nigeria.”

Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the 2023 election, in other news, has issued a plea to Muslims during this period of Ramadan.

He exhorted Muslims to use the month of Ramadan to pray for the country and implore God to lead it out of difficult times.

In a post on his X account on Monday, Obi stated that Ramadan is more than only personal contemplation, but also a time of solidarity and social purpose.

The former governor of Anambra State exhorted Muslims to utilize Ramadan for contemplation, to improve their connection with Allah (SWT), and to emerge from the holy month renewed in their faith.

He believes that people should use the spirit of Ramadan to foster brotherhood and sisterhood across the country.

“I believe that we will use this moment to pray for the nation in these most trying times, to guide and protect our country to lead us out of these challenging times.
“Dear brothers and sisters in Islam, as the crescent moon heralds the onset of the holy month of Ramadan, I extend my warmest wishes for a blessed Ramadan.
“As you embark on this sacred journey of fasting, prayer, and self-reflection, let us embrace the spirit of Ramadan with open hearts and unwavering faith. May the sacrifices of this period cleanse our hearts and renew our love for one another.
“May this month be filled with abundant peace, finding inner tranquillity through devotion to Allah (SWT), and resonating with peace throughout our nation. May the blessings of Ramadan bring you closer to Allah (SWT) and fill your hearts with the joy of faith and community.
“Utilize this time for introspection, strengthen your connection with Allah (SWT), and emerge from Ramadan reenergized in your faith. Ramadan is more than personal reflection; it is a time for unity and collective purpose.
“Let us harness the spirit of Ramadan to strengthen the bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood nationwide. Share Iftar meals, offer support to those in need, and celebrate the togetherness of defining the Islamic community.
“Promote peace and understanding within Nigeria. May the lessons of Ramadan – compassion, empathy, and self-restraint – guide our interactions and foster a more peaceful society.
“Contribute to the progress and productivity of our beloved nation. May the discipline and focus honed during Ramadan regenerate dedication to building a better Nigeria for all,” Obi said.
