The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has called on Nigerians to join him in making Nigeria work, promising that he will not leave any of his promises unfulfilled.
Newsonline reports that Peter Obi promised if elected on February 25, 2023, he will save the country from all the challenges it is facing from economy, insecurity, lack of education and healthcare.
The former governor of Anambra State who said this in his New Year Day message said the country cannot continue in its all-around retrogressive movement.
He said Nigerians should hold him accountable for all his promises and his determination to move the country from consumption to production.
Obi said, “I call on all Nigerians to unite our efforts in the journey of taking back our nation from the cold hands of corruption, insecurity and unproductivity. 2023 is a very critical year that will determine the next direction of our nation.”
“This nation cannot continue in its all round retrogressive movement in the coming years, as that will result in its total collapse. 2023 is an existential year in the history of our nation. It is a year we all must unite against the continued abuse of our nation’s democracy and economy. The power is in our hands to take back our nation, this year, and make it work. I call on Nigerians to support me in saving our nation. My commitment is securing the country, unifying the nation and moving it from consumption to production.”
“I call on Nigerians to hold me accountable to my promises for a better nation, when I am elected. I have made a pact with Nigerians and I will not leave any of my promises unfulfilled. Nigerians can hold me accountable by my words of promise. I wish Nigerians a very productive 2023 and urge everyone to remain law-abiding, while contributing to the growth and development of the nation.”
Peter Obi also added that the nation is in an Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp as result of bad governance which made many citizens to spend their Christmas and New Year in IDP Camp.
Speaking in Wassa IDP camp in Abuja, Federal Capital Territory, on New Year Day, Obi said, “It was a very sad and first hand experience of what the IDPs are going through; no water, no health care, no light, no secondary school, etc. As long as they are in IDP camps, Nigeria is an IDP Camp.”
