It is just seven days to the long awaited Presidential Elections, as Nigerians are getting ready to vote the candidate of their choice. However, the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter obi, released a statement via his twitter handle on Saturday, where he said, “Fellow Nigerians, we are down to Crunch Time – 7 Days to the Main Day. Our strength is in our diversity. We need to reset and reboot Nigeria in all ramifications –leadership and governance, security of life and properties, economic and political freedom. We must celebrate our Shared Values and Responsibilities.
In this march to freedom, I have not come out for myself! I have come out for the millions of youths that are losing hope in our beloved country! Datti and I, wish to deliver a new Nigeria that is POssible!. I have come out for the millions of women who are afraid of tomorrow and what it holds for them and their children! I have come out for the poor who are asking whether it’s a sin to be a Nigerian! For them, I have come! For them, Datti has come!. Our message has been consistent. Nigeria is not bereft of the required human capital necessary for good leadership. Nigeria is also not bereft of good governance ideas and plans. However, our country is bedeviled by the impunity of those few who have perfected the dubious act of State Capture. These national interest issues need to be addressed urgently. The process will start in earnest on 25th February.
However, our country is bedeviled by the impunity of those few who have perfected the dubious act of State Capture. These national interest issues need to be addressed urgently. The process will start in earnest on 25th February. This will include 3 level policing Federal, state and community. We will raise the population to police officer ratio to a higher level and ensure properly manned, equipped and technologically driven security system. The change we seek to bring will be all encompassing. WE will bring back Patriotism and national Pride. Loyalty should be to God and Country. The Constitution and Rule of Law will have primacy. May God help Us all”.What do you have to say about this statement from Mr. Peter obi?
