‘My dear brothers of the Integrity Group, you have done well. They tried to break us, they couldn’t break us and they never will.
“But here in Rivers State, I will say it and let the heavens hear me. Let the earth hear me today. I will not support anyone who says that no other person from other ethnic groups can be president. I won’t.
“I mean, Nigeria belongs to all of us, whether you are Hausa, Fulani; whether you are from Yoruba, whether you are from Igbo or Ikwerre, whether you are from Urhobo, whether you are from Itsekiri, Ijaw or anywhere, you have the right to be president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“So when you go on national television and tell people, don’t vote Yorubas, don’t vote Igbos, you haven’t even mentioned where I’m from, which means nobody cares. identify with me; which means I come from nowhere. But God knows I come from somewhere.
