Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, has expressed optimism that he would emerge winner in the south western zone of the country in the forthcoming general elections.
Obi also declared himself the most qualified person to rule Nigeria, saying he has what it takes to move the country to the promised land in 2023.
Speaking at the first and second convocation ceremonies of the Dominican University in Ibadan, the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi declared himself the best qualified candidate to lead Nigeria and claimed he would win because of his abilities to lead the nation to its promised land.
Saying; “My number one structure is God, the number two is human being, and you people are my structure because you believe in me and in what I am saying.
The structure we have today is that of criminality and underdevelopment. These structures have ruined the country. So, the question is do you want to continue with the existing structure or you want a new structure?
If they say I give unverified statistics let them come with theirs. They cannot say I give wrong statistics, yet fail to give the right statistics
I make promises on which I can deliver.
The task ahead requires physical and mental energy, it is left for you to assess who is most likely capable of getting the job done. What I intend to do if elected is to secure and unite Nigeria, ensure that we move it from consumption to production because it is the only way we can pull people out of poverty. If we can create jobs and opportunities for people, things will turn around.
I will invest in health and education. We will start from basic education to ensure that people are educated at the basic level. At the tertiary level, we will find a combination that would enable the system to work well without our students going on strike.”
Obi spoke while x-raying his chances of securing maximum votes in the southwest in the 2023 election.
Obi, who is the Pro-Chancellor of the university, stated that he had proved he could do the job, adding: “And my promise is a promise: that I will deliver. It is for us to look at our promises and how we will be able to deliver in parts.”
“The job requires a lot of physical and mental energy; it’s for you to assess who is most likely to do the job.”
“It’s not acceptable, we will pull people out of poverty, we will work hard to remove Nigeria from consumer to producer, we will support the private sector, which in turn will provide more jobs for our youths.”
Meanwhile, the APC has said it will record landslide victory in the South-West for its presidential candidate, Sen. Bola Tinubu in the 2023 general elections.
