Labour Party’s Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, said the 2023 presidential election will not be by tribe or religion. Obi, who spoke in Enugu, during the presidential rally of the Labour Party held at Okpara square said the current situation of the country is affecting all tribes, and that all the tribes are suffering and insisted that Nigerians should vote for him to end poverty and suffering in the country instead of tribe or religion.
The former Anambra State governor said Nigerians are tired of fake and unfulfilled promises, noting that it was unfortunate that Nigeria, with a population of about 200 million people, has more poor people than China and India. He promised to reform the police and make the force friendlier to the people, adding that they will recruit more people and ensure a better welfare package for the police in the country when in office.
The Labour Party presidential candidate promised that if elected president, he will put measures in place to make sure that Nigerians are proud of their country again and that he and his deputy will build a new Nigeria, adding that they will be wealth creators as they did before they occupied government positions. Obi told the electorate that he is contesting for the presidential position because he is the most qualified candidate and not because he is an Igbo man.
