Economic hardship: No religion, tribe or political party buys food cheaper – Peter Obi

Amid worsening economic hardship and hunger, Mr Peter Obi of the Labour Party, LP, has maintained that no religion, tribe, or political party buys food cheaper in any market in Nigeria.

Obi said Nigerians should join hands in moving the nation from consumption to production for the good of society.

The former Anambra State governor gave the assertion in a post on his X handle on Monday.

According to the former presidential candidate of LP, Nigeria’s many challenges as a nation could be conquered by unity of efforts, collaboration, 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.”
