The former Anambra state governor urged Nigerians to resist politicians who are planning to manipulate them, adding that it is the right of Nigerian youths to elect whoever they want to become the nation’s leader in 2023.

He also said they should not vote based on religion, stressing that the bribe politicians give is stolen from the treasure of the nation.

Obi’s words: “So let’s not listen to the crime, it is we the politicians and elite to manipulate you. It’s enough. Don’t look at our religion, Let nobody tell you that it’s their entitlement. It is nobody’s turn.

“It’s Nigeria’s turn. It’s the turn of Nigerian youths. So, nobody would take anything from them this time. Nobody is entitled to it. And don’t take their money, it’s your money they are giving you. They didn’t print money.”
