We’ll return Nigeria to Nigerians – Peter Obi

The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi has assured Nigerians that his government, if elected as president will give them a sense of belonging. Speaking at the Labour Party and Coalition for Peter Obi Leadership summit in Abuja on Thursday, the former Anambra State governor expressed optimism that his administration would take power back to Nigerians.

According to Obi, the only thing lacking in the country at the moment is leadership, stressing that his aim to occupy the number seat is to give Nigerians good leadership

Obi said: “Our job is to take power from those who have it and give it back to you. We have a country called Nigeria but we don’t have Nigerians. What we want to do is to create Nigerians.

“The only way to create Nigerians is to make people have hope in Nigeria and the only way they will have faith in Nigeria is that there is hope in Nigerians.

“The only thing that is lacking in this country is leadership. And that is what we intend to provide. We are not trying to do something else. Leadership is what Datti and I want to provide. We are not looking for anything”.
