Mr. Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the previous year’s elections, has condemned the deportation of Osun indigenes from Lagos State, labeling it as a violation of citizens’ rights.

Reports emerged on Saturday detailing the deportation of Osun indigenes from Lagos, with police officers reportedly conducting the operation in various locations, including Ajah, TBS, and Lagos Island.

Expressing his disapproval, Obi took to his social media platform on X to denounce the action, emphasizing its adverse implications for national unity and development.

He asserted that every Nigerian, regardless of their state of origin or current residence, deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.

“Let us always remember that we are all Nigerians, united by a common destiny,” Obi underscored, emphasizing the collective responsibility to uphold values of unity, fairness, and justice and to resist all forms of discrimination or injustice.

Highlighting the constitutional rights of every Nigerian citizen to reside and seek livelihood in any part of the federation, Obi stressed that the deportation issue transcends Osun State and affects all Nigerians who uphold principles of unity and justice.

While urging for calm pending the outcome of the investigation ordered by the Osun State Government, the former Anambra State governor reiterated the importance of upholding national unity and protecting the rights of all citizens.
