Labor Party presidential candidate Peter Obi has expressed optimism about the creation of a new Nigeria, noting that previous major political parties had brought more pain than relief to the country.

Obi was speaking on Wednesday when his presidential campaign council came to Gombe state to solicit votes, noting that the solution lies with the Labor Party.

Our correspondent reports that Obi previously met Gombe women at the International Hotel Conference Hall, where he sought their support, stressing that they should use their permanent voter cards to bring the right change to the country.

She told the participants that as mothers of the nation, they have a vital role to play by not only participating in politics but also leading their children to vote wisely in the 2023 election.

He said: “The 2023 elections are elections that will usher in a new Nigeria that its citizens will begin to trust and have confidence in,” adding that the job of building a new country like Nigeria requires both physical and mental energy. .

“We want to build a new Nigeria,” he said, adding: “You voted for the umbrella, which leaked and left you suffering; you voted for the broom, which dragged you into poverty.

“Now is the time to vote for human beings for a new Nigeria. It’s time to vote for mom, dad and kids.”
