Labour Party’s presidential flag bearer, Peter Obi, says he is in the presidential race because he is qualified given his political experience and track record as a governor.
The former governor of Anambra State disclosed this in a tweet on Sunday, stressing that Nigerians cannot afford to vote for the wrong candidate in the 25 February 2023 presidential election.
“We can no longer gamble with our fate and future. I’m running for president because I am qualified. I have the capacity, credibility, commitment, stamina, governance experience, and track record. More importantly, Nigerians can trust me,” he tweeted.
In another tweet, Obi said he would run a responsive, transformative, cost-effective government if elected to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari next year.
“Ultimately, the overall goal of the Obi-Datti administration will be to streamline governance, make it more responsive, transformative, effective, less transactional and therefore, efficient and cost-effective,” he wrote.
Obi is among the top three contenders for the office of the president in the forthcoming general elections. The others are Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
His campaign is anchored on transforming Nigeria from a consuming nation to a producing nation.
