Awka, April 25, 2023 – Peter Obi, the Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, has promised to assist in rebuilding a mosque in Awka.

Speaking on Monday while visiting members of the Muslim community in Awka to felicitate with them on the celebration of Eid el-Fitri, Obi said his visit had nothing to do with politics.

The former Anambra Governor, who was also in Onitsha mosque on Sunday for the same purpose, explained that paying such visits should not only be borne out of political ambitions.

While donating cartons of noodles, bags of rice and soft drinks to the community, Obi promised to help them in rebuilding of the mosque, which was undergoing facelift.

“I thank you for inviting me to the mosque to celebrate with you.

“You wanted to come to my house instead, but I said it will be better for me to come and now that I have come, I have also seen that the mosque is undergoing reconstruction.

“I want to pledge here and now that I shall contribute to the work you have at hand, to ensure that you have a befitting place of worship.

“I am a Christian and you are Muslims, but we are all Nigerians, and Nigeria is one. It is only politics that divides us. But let me tell you, I have never seen any road that is built and it is only for Muslims to drive on.

“I have also not seen any market where Christians buy bread cheaper than Muslims. If you know such market, please tell me, let me go and buy,” he said.(GBN)
