A Nigerian man has donated the sum of N500,000 to support the campaign of Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
The young man identified as @RichMoney001, who revealed this on his social media page, urged Peter Obi not to disappoint if he wins the presidential election in 2023, and he added that the money he donated is his 9 months savings.
According to the staunch Obi supporter, he considers the donation as his contribution to a better Nigeria, and promises to donate more before the election.
“Am using my 9months savings to secure my future generation yet unborn. Pls @PeterObi when you become president come 2023 election pls don’t disappoint me and other youths that believes in you. 😥 My donation for @PeterObi campaign is not a mistake and i will donate more before the election, is my own little way of contributing for a better Nigeria. God bless Nigeria.” He wrote.
The young man’s gesture was however met with mixed reactions. While he was applauded by a number of Nigerians on the micro-blogging platform others tagged it as unnecessary.
