Mr. Peter Obi has described as timely, the release of a new book Hands Off Africa, written by the Catholic Pontif, Pope Francis, stressing that the book “touches on a very critical point of discontinuing the exploitation of Africa by the Western powers.”
Mr. Obi, the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the February 25, 2023, election, noted further that in the book, “prefaced by our literary ambassador and global author – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie,” Pope Francis suggests that Africa should be left alone to ‘”be the protagonist of its own destiny!”’
Obi said that he has “consistently called on Nigerians to take back their country because only Nigerians can save Nigeria. This is the only nation that we have, and it is ours to build and develop.
“When I rejected the dual citizenship of other countries years back, I was conscious that Nigeria as the only country that I have will need my full attention and commitment in the years to come.
“I remain committed to the progress of our nation, Nigeria, and to her continued constructive role in Africa. -PO.”
