The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has urged supporters in Gombe State to vote based on competence and accountability not based on sentiments in the general elections.
The former governor of Anambra State stated this on Wednesday, while addressing women supporters in the state.
Obi said: “Don’t vote for anybody because he is from the North, if they tell you they are from the North, tell them you are hungry, your children are hungry and have no jobs.
“You have been voting for the North what did you get from voting the North? Do you buy bread cheaper because you are from the North?
“Let nobody tell you about religion, whoever does that, ask him to show you where Muslims or Christians buy bread cheaper. Do Christians or Muslims buy bread cheaper because of their religion?
The presidential candidate of the Labour Party said that anyone campaigning based on religion or ethnicity was only deceiving Nigerians and such persons would not deliver good governance that would benefit Nigerians.
Obi added that, “We are the structure. You are the structure. Their structure is that of stealing and corruption but we will wipe it away.”
