2023: Hold me by my promises, Peter Obi tells Nigerians

THE presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has asked Nigerians to hold him to his promises if elected into office in 2023.

Speaking during the LP presidential campaign rally yesterday in Makurdi, Benue State, Obi said the federal government under his leadership would support every state to develop at its own pace.

He also promised to secure and bring peace to Benue State. He said, “Those who want to go back to their villages will go back. Those who want to go back to their farms will go back and we will support them. Our government is about securing Nigeria.

“We will ensure that we restructure the entire security infrastructure in Nigeria and we will give them all the moral support.

“We are not going to make fake promises; we are ready to do the work. We don’t want people who do not have the energy to do the work. Nigeria over the years has refused to dredge the River Niger and Benue; with the dredging, you will be able to move your goods from Lokoja to Onitsha, use it for River transport.”

He said they will not allow the present flooding to continue without doing anything about it.

Obi also said Nigeria will become better for all citizens if his party takes over power in 2023.

He spoke in Makurdi during the LP rally held at the IBB Square in continuation of his nationwide tour.
