The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in this year’s elections, Mr Peter Obi, has promised to bring back a new Nigeria where every citizen will be proud to belong.
He lamented that presently, Nigerians are ashamed to identify themselves as Nigerians because of the many challenges the country is faced with.
Speaking in Kaduna on Wednesday while flagging off his presidential campaign in the North, Peter Obi said: “Kaduna was the capital of Northern Nigeria where every Nigerian was proud to belong, hence we started the campaign here in Kaduna. We are about to bring back that Nigeria where everybody was happy to belong. Kaduna State represented productivity in the North. It represented what was good in Nigeria. And that is what we want to bring back. We are tired of hearing stories.”
According to him, Kaduna State hosts the best military formations in the country, it is supposed to be more secure than any part of the country, adding: “But there are so many security challenges in the state. We will secure and unite Nigeria. Security will come back again.”
He noted that insecurity in the country is not because the bandits are more formidable than the government, but because of bad leadership.
