The Presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP), has promised to build a new Nigeria devoid of mass poverty and criminalities, if elected in 2023 general election.
Obi made the promise on Wednesday at a rally in Makurdi, saying he will invest heavily in education and eradicate unemploymen in the country
The further Anambra State governor also vowed to solve the security challenges, especially Benue, to ensure quick return of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) back to their ancestral homes.
He said, “We will secure and bring peace to Benue so that those at the IDP camps will go back to their homes and farms and we will support them in production.
“Benue will be supported to become an exporting state considering that it is an agriculturally rich state.”
He further said that Rivers Benue and Niger would be dredged to enhance water transportation in Nigeria, promising also to end crude oil theft in the country for the benefit of all Nigerians.
“With Obi and Datti, a new Nigeria is possible and I dare to say that Nigerians can hold me responsible if we do not turn Nigeria around for good,” Obi said.
