Multiple for profits and non- profits

The use of tribalism and bigotry is not only unacceptable but also a threat to our democracy and our nation's unity. We must continue to work together to ensure that our elections are conducted peacefully and that the rights of every voter are protected.

I’ve always known we were divided in Nigeria, I just didn’t know it was this deep. This States election has revealed the true underbelly of our whale. I’m deeply troubled by the unimaginable level of violence, ethnic profiling &the unprecedented voter suppression across PUs. Sad!

Fellow Nigerians, it's 3 days to go and in my quiet moments I know that Nigerians are wondering what Peter Obi is thinking. I will share my thoughts here because I have Nigeria on my mind!
