The presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, has stated that Nigeria is physically challenged and needs total deliverance and a patriot to salvage the situation.
Obi, who stated this on Friday while addressing the mammoth crowd that thronged the venue of his campaign rally at Rwang Pam Stadium in Jos, Plateau State, said Nigeria was passing through challenges that need urgent deliverance.
He expressed worry and disappointment over how Nigeria suddenly become the poverty capital of the world, adding that economy of the country would be rejigged to eradicate poverty and as well restore the lost hope of an average Nigerian.
“It is a shock that Nigeria become poverty capital of the world through bad leadership. A vote for Obi/Dati will restore the lost hope. The two of us are educated, Nigeria should look at the pedigrees and backgrounds of all the candidate and choose the right candidate. We are the most qualify of all the candidate.
“2023 is not the turn of anyone but the turn of all Nigeria for credible leadership, it is the turn of Nigeria to take their destiny into thier hands. I am contesting because I am a Nigerian. There’s no difference between the rich and the poor, the both go to the same market, we shall bridge the gap if elected,” he assured.
He assured the people of Plateau State that if elected, he would restore the lost glory of the state and as well make it a tourist destination in Africa.
Addressing the crowd, the governorship candidate of the party in Plateau State, Dr Patrick Dakum, implored the people of the state to brace up the challenge and collect their PVC before the deadline adding that by so doing, their labour would not be in vain.
