Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP in the 2023 general elections, Peter Obi has appealed to his supporters to imbibe tolerance in the course campaigning for his presidential bid.
Obi made the appeal in a statement issued via his verified Twitter handle on Sunday.
While thanking supporters for believing in him and his commitment to building a united, secure and well-functioning Nigeria, Obi appealed to his supporters to be more tolerant of other people’s views, dissent and divergent opinions and possibly learn from them.
He said, “While the frustration and anger in the country is understandable, we must strive to channel that energy positively in ways that will earn the support and collaboration of others.
“Even as our message continues to gain broad acceptance, there are some we still need to work to convince. In expressing ourselves, we should do so with grace so as not to precipitately shut doors to future collaborations on sustainable nation-building. -PO,” the LP candidate added.
