The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, (LP), Peter Obi has promised to build a nation where everyone will be respected if elected as Nigeria’s president in the forthcoming election.
The former Anambra State governor stated this on Sunday at the People’s Town Hall 2023 organized by Channels Television.
On what influenced his decision to join the presidential race.
Obi said, “I decided to be part of this race because we want to start turning Nigeria around for Nigerians. We want to build a nation where everyone will be respected,” he said, stressing that any leader who wants Nigeria to succeed must take away his personal interest and that of his friends and groups. That is the only way Nigeria can achieve and we are ready to do that.”
Speaking further Obi said security personnel would be well motivated to perform their duties.
“for our men and women in the security, we will ensure they are motivated and supported and properly insured and make sure they are confident their families are protected in case something happens to them. All procurement in the Military and other sectors must be transparent. It must be measurable and visible. The days of doing things hidden are gone.
“We need to involve every community in Nigeria in security where each community secures their community and shares information with other communities.
“We have to be alive for the constitution to be amended, not wait for all of us to be dead before doing something. I will use my powers as the President and Commander-in-Chief to secure Nigeria as quickly as possible,” he pledged.
On education Peter Obi said, “Education is an investment because the more your people are educated, the more you will see development. Health, Education, and pulling people out of poverty will take top priority in my government.”
