Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party, has come forward to claim he is not a citizen of another nation.
The former governor of Anambra state discussed a variety of topics in a recent interview, including his supposed arrest for impersonation in the UK.
Peter Obi made it apparent that he had no dual citizenship, asserting that he had even lost his right to live permanently in the UK and that his honorary citizenship in Dallas was simply a gesture of welcome.

Obi said to Arise News on Monday night, May 1, “My honorary citizenship in Dallas, Texas means nothing, it doesn’t even grant me Visa-free entry to the United States.”
“I am a Nigerian who believes in Nigeria, hence I have never filed for citizenship there and I never will.”
The LP candidate declared at the end of the interview that he was not in any way anxious to succeed Muhammadu Buhari as the next president of Nigeria.
"I don't have an urgent need to become president. I only want Nigeria to succeed."
