Nigeria’s future depends on February election, says Obi

By Valentine Amanze

The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Vice Presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, has called on Nigerians to see the nation’s general election of February, 2019 as decisive about the future and economic progress of the country and not about the usual sentiments/interests on casting of votes.
Obi gave the advice in Rano, Kano State, during the PDP Kano South Senatorial rally, yesterday.
Obi said that over the past three years the foundation of Nigeria had come under serious threats due to incompetent governance, inadequate attention to the economy which had spiraled into unprecedented unemployment, inflation, economic hardship and mistaken outspokenness on corruption for real policies that would make corruption unattractive.
Obi, the immediate past governor of Anambra State, also said that the only way to stop what he described as “the backwards movement of the country”, was by sending those that have failed to improve lives out of power through the ballots.
His words:
“When I became the Governor of Anambra State, I did not complain about what I met on ground. God, I believe, gave us eyes in the front to look forward and not backwards. This does not mean that we should not take note of the past to build great future, but the case of failing to solve even one of Nigerians’ many problems and to perpetually resort to blame game is a sign of incompetence to govern. What Nigerians should do is to vote in Atiku/Obi for their proven track records of successes in employment generation, wealth creation and consensus building among Nigerians.”
If elected into office, Obi said that they would create jobs, secure and unify the country.
