Peter Obi has promised to end stealing in government if he comes President.
The presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP), Mr. Peter Obi, has assured the electorate of his determination to change the stealing of public funds.
He promised to heal and unite the country, if elected President in next year’s general election.
The LP candidate said his administration would move the country from consumption to production in order to create jobs and reduce crime and criminality.
Obi made these promises at his campaign rally yesterday in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital.
He said: “It is a promise for I and my team are prepared to be held accountable. For that, we will move Nigeria from a consuming nation to a producing one. We will make sure that production starts from local level.
“We will increase the minimum wage since the minimum wage today can hardly sustain workers. We should be able produce enough for consumption and even export to create wealth.
“Good people of Kogi State, we are not here to buy your votes. We are here to tell you how we are going to save the country. We want to unite Nigeria; we want to bring the family back together. We want to bring back the rule of law.”
“We will consult you before taking any decision on any matter that affects you because power belongs to you.”
Obi also promised to revive the steel industry in the state to give a strong backing to the economy.
“The steel industry is very important to the development of the economy. Therefore, we will liaise with professionals and experts who know what to do with the Ajaokuta Steel Company immediately we are sworn in,” he said.
