The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has said if the presidency is turn by turn, it is his turn to be president in 2023.
On insecurity, Obi stated that the country had to be invested in production which was the only way crime could stop as many criminals were former industry workers.
The former governor of Anambra State said this on Berekete Radio.
He said, “The poverty in the country can only be tackled through production and it’s only through it crimes and criminalities can be reduced. Those bandits are factory workers who are doing nothing.“
Speaking about the thorny issue of the Biafra agitation, Obi declared that “the Biafra war ended 52 years ago and that is the position. I am a Nigerian and running for President as a Nigerian.
“If the President is to be given by whose turn it is, as an Igbo it’s my turn but I am in the race as a Nigerian wishing to be hired based on my track record, competence and capacity.”
He expressed regret that Nigerian leaders have not shown sufficient compassion for the plight of the ordinary people they govern.
Obi described such people “are annoying God by turning grace into entitlement.“
