Vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Peter Obi, on Tuesday, February 5 in Anambra state, said “only those who do not wish Nigeria well are still supporting the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).”
Obi made the comment during a roadshow in Awka to create awareness among the people of the state concerning the February 16 election.
Vanguard reports that a massive crowd made up of traders, students, artisans and people from all walks of life turned up for the road show organised by the PDP in all the parts of the state to create awareness among the people of the state concerning the February 16 election.
According to the report, during the road show, Obi intermittently spoke to the crowd, inviting them to vote for the PDP in the forth coming election in order to empower Alhaji Abubakar Atiku to make Nigeria to start working again.
Obi, a former governor of the state, noted that Atiku’s experience, past records, expertise in wealth-creation and empowerment are among the many reasons Nigeria needs him now.
He assured the people of the state that a vote for Atiku is a vote for the country to witness the type of unprecedented development Anambra state under his administration.
His words: “The groups are endorsing us because they are seeing the reality. Nigerians have seen that the present government does not have the capacity to govern Nigeria. I want to assure you that more endorsements will come because people are not happy with this government.
“We have a country that is collapsing and it is up to Nigerians to know who to choose. If you think what you are getting in the last three years is okay, then you remain where you are, but I know it is not okay. Our country is now worse.
“The condition of Nigeria should worry everyone. We have a very bad record on insecurity; we have moved from number seven to number three on insecurity. After Afghanistan, it is Iraq and we are the number three and this shameful situation should worry all Nigerians.
“We now have the highest number of poor people living on the surface of the earth in Nigeria and it should also worry all Nigerians.”
