Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi, on Saturday met with traditional rulers in Kagoro, Kaura Local Government Area in the south of Kaduna State.
In the meeting in Kafachan, Obi promised to eradicate corruption if elected as president.
He noted that corruption has prevented Nigeria from realising its full potential, “hence the need to stamp it out.
Obi said, “With your support, I will fight corruption and block all areas of revenue leakages.
“We will stop the wastages in government and start saving to rebuild our country.
“Opposition says I am stingy, but nobody has accused me or my running mate of corruption.”
The LP flagbearer also vowed to fight poverty as a way of reducing crimes.
“We must start pulling our people out of poverty because the more you reduce poverty the more you reduce crime,’’ he said.
He said he would work with traditional rulers to address security challenges facing Nigeria.
Responding, the Chief of Kagoro, Ufuwai Bonet, appreciated Obi for identifying with the people of Southern Kaduna.
