Erebuoye, also the president of the Concerned Nigerian Network in Diaspora, advised Nigerians to see themselves as one, irrespective of tribe, religion and other sentiments, wherever they reside.
“No matter where you come from, as long as you are a Nigerian, you have no restriction of movement and have the right to call any part of the country your home irrespective of your political affiliation.
“You should be allowed to vote for a candidate of your choice during elections without intimidation.
“Only lazy and visionless people discriminate amongst themselves; our goal should be building a prosperous and a better Nigeria where all will live in peace and harmony.”
He noted that if Nigerians could contest elective positions in the United States and other parts of the world without any form of discrimination and emerge victorious, there should be no political hindrance in the country.
