Presidential Candidate of Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi has promised to end insecurity, poverty and unemployment in Nigeria if elected in 2023.
Obi made the promise at a rally organised by the Middle Belt Forum on Thursday in Jos.
The LP candidate, who also promised to address hunger, unemployment and corruption, said that he would promote quality of education at all levels and improve power supply.
”If you elect me as your president, I will end provide security at all levels so that our people can go to farm and by so doing, the issue of food insecurity and hunger will be a thing of the past.
”We will create jobs for our teeming unemployed youth and end poverty.
We will make our educational system functional and improve electricity supply.
”We will block all leakages and end corruption at all levels; our government will be a responsible one. We will not fail Nigerians.
”We want a new Nigeria and we are determined to make Nigerians happy again,” he said.
Obi, however, advised the people to pray for peaceful and credible elections in 2023, adding that only credible polls would produce credible leaders.
Earlier, Dr Pogu Bitrus, the President of Middle Belt Forum, said that the forum is in support of Obi’s candidature, insisting that Obi’s presidency would address the problems the middle belt has been faced with.
Bitrus explained that the forum had thrown its weight behind Obi based on the principle of justice and fairness.
”We didn’t arrive at the decision to support Peter Obi on sheer sentiments, but on the principle of justice and fairness.
