I Don’t Have Dual Nationality – Obi Shades Tinubu

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the February 25 election, has thrown a shade at President-elect, Bola Tinubu over the controversy surrounding his dual citizenship.

Recall that Tinubu is alleged to have acquired citizenship of another country other than Nigeria.

David Hundeyin, over the weekend, had sent Nigerian internet users into a frenzy after he uploaded images of a Guinean diplomatic passport bearing “Bola Ahmed Tinubu” and his photograph on Twitter.

Though Twitter sanctioned Mr Hundeyin over what it described as a “breach of privacy”, there seems no end in sight to the controversy as Nigerians have started calling out Tinubu to come clarify himself.

Shading Tinubu in a speech at the National Executive Council, NEC, meeting of the Labour Party in Asaba, Delta State on Tuesday, Obi said:

“I’m a Nigerian. Committed Nigerian. I don’t have any dual nationality. So, this (Nigeria) is my own country.

“And I have said it that even if there is war outside this country and I’m outside, I will come back because this is my country.”
