Peter Obi: Nigerians should hold me to my promises

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, says Nigerians should hold him to his promises if he becomes president in 2023.

Obi said this at the LP presidential campaign rally in Makurdi, Benue State, on Wednesday.

He also said he would secure and restore peace to Benue.

“Those who want to go back to their villages will go back. Those who want to go back to their farms will go back and we will support them. Our government is about securing Nigeria,” he said.

“We will ensure that we restructure the entire security infrastructure in Nigeria and we will give them all the moral support.

“We are not going to make fake promises; we are ready to do the work. We don’t want people who do not have the energy to do the work. Nigeria over the years has refused to dredge the River Niger and Benue; with the dredging, you will be able to move your goods from Lokoja to Onitsha, use it for River transport.”

Obi added that he would run a government that would ensure prosperity for all the states.
