Pedro Obithe Labor Party (LP) presidential candidate, has urged the electorate to give him a chance to create a new Nigeria where people have equal opportunities.
Speaking at a rally in Maiduguri on Saturday, Obi said other parties had failed so it was necessary for Nigerians to try Labor to bring about the change needed.
“We want you to hold us accountable for a new Nigeria. For too long people have wasted the future of Nigerians and we can’t go on like this.
“We will secure and restore Nigeria to what it should be,” he said.
Obi, who lamented the security challenges in Borno and other parts of Nigeria, said his administration will restore hope to the people and ensure that no Nigerian is left behind in the displaced persons camp.
He said Borno had vast agricultural land and resources that, if properly harnessed, could bring in billions of naira annually.
“My administration has a great plan for the north, particularly in the areas of agriculture and education that will help lift it out of poverty,” Obi said.
Also speaking, Labor Party vice-presidential candidate Datti Baba-Ahmad discussed Obi’s legacies as a former governor who did not borrow money to work for his state.
He said that the two main political parties had failed the Nigerians and that the Labor Party remained the only alternative to save the country.
In her speech, Obi supporter and activist Aisha Yusuf urged Nigerians to take the 2023 election seriously by voting for Labor Party candidates because of the party’s people-oriented programs.
