Peter Obi Promises To Revive Ibom Deep Seaport
Peter Obi has promised to revive Ibom Deep seaport ahead of 2023 election.
The Nation reports that Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has criticised the Federal Government for not developing the Ibom deep seaport 40 years after the Senate visited the site in Akwa Ibom State.
He spoke while addressing a crowd of supporters during his presidential campaign at the Unity Park in Uyo.
Obi promised to develop the project to achieve its full potential if elected the next president of Nigeria in 2023.
The former Anambra State governor had travelled to the project site at Ibaka, Mbo Local Government Area with a helicopter.
He said: “Since 1983 senators came here and said there is going to build a deep Seaport, next year will make it 40 years.
“The Federal government has not done anything in Akwa Ibom State. All they come here to do is make fake promises.
“You cannot drive from here to Calabar, you cannot drive from here to Umuahia. I don’t make fake promises. What we want to make Nigeria to work again.
“If you check the major parties’ presidential candidates that are contesting, Datti and I are the youngest.
“In terms of education and exposure, Datti and I are the most qualified.
“So, I and my Vice presidential candidate are prepared to work
“Our first priority is to secure and unite Nigeria. Politicians are the ones creating division among Nigerians.
“North, South, East and West are one. There will be peace, there will be no more police harassment of the citizens.
“We will make education work. We will sit down with lecturers and discuss. We will make this country work. It is time to take back your country.”
