Obi predicts 2023 elections make-or-mar moment for security, future of Nigerian children

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, Mr Peter Obi, has observed that the 2023 general elections should be about the security of the nation and the future of the children.

Obi stated this on Monday, May 9, in Jos when he addressed Plateau delegates ahead of the party primaries.

The former governor of Anambra said that Nigeria must get it right in 2023; if it would regain its position among the comity of nations.

He told the delegates, and indeed Nigerians, not to sacrifice the future of their children for immediate gains.

“You won’t be delegates forever; your children will suffer it if you do not choose the right leader.

“If they bring money, collect it but when you go to vote; first place the picture of your children at heart, not my picture, neither your picture because that is the future of your children.

“They will have a better and secure future if the right person is elected the next president,” he said.

Obi said that he was offering himself to vie for the number one job because he had the capacity; and had proven beyond doubt that he could lead the country.

“We should move from a nation of consumption to a nation of production.

“This is necessary because you can’t have revenue when everyone is leaving in poverty.

“You need to improve the people’s standard of living for the revenue to grow,” he said.

According to him, 60 per cent of the more than 200 million Nigerians are youths, who would be very productive if encouraged.

Meanwhile, the President of the Senate, Dr Ahmad Lawan has joined the race for the 2023 Presidency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Lawan made the formal declaration on Monday, May 9, in Abuja. This was when a group of concerned Nigerians, ‘National Stability Project’ presented the Expression of Interest and Nomination forms to him.

The group was led by Chief Sam Nkire, member, National Caucus/Pioneer Caucus Leader, Abia APC.

While receiving the form, Lawan said, “Today is a special day and this moment is a very memorable and very historic moment.

“Over the last seven years, we have been participants in the administration of our country at the national level.”
