If elected, Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, promises to eradicate poverty and insecurity.
This was said by Obi on Monday at the Muhammadu Dikko stadium in Katsina during a rally for his party’s presidential nomination.
If elected president, the LP candidate promised to work to ensure residents’ welfare.
“For the previous 24 years, Nigerians have been duped. Please cast your vote for the Labour Party in the upcoming elections, I beg of you. We have promised to put a stop to the violence, alleviate the suffering, and bring peace back to this nation, Obi stated.
Obi and his running mate Datti Baba-Ahmed also went to a town hall meeting with females and students from several universities in the state.
The LP candidates said it is time for change in the country, adding that they are committed to building a new Nigeria.
“We want to build a Nigeria where there will be security of lives and property; nobody will be in IDP camp; your children will be secured and they will be in school. I will seek your support for that,” Obi said.
“You have been deceived for the past 24 years, that’s what we want to change. Let’s have a new Nigeria.”
In his remarks, Datti Baba-Ahmed said the LP has all it takes to tackle the challenges troubling the country.
“All issues bedeviling the country have come to an end. We will hold your hands to say bye-bye to poverty, unnecessary killings, and kidnapping,” Baba-Ahmed said.
“Job opportunities will be available; the economy will be improved and strengthened. As you can see the condition of poverty and hunger you were sunk into, we are the ones who know how to rescue you.”
