Youths Ready To Move Mountains To Save Nigeria, Says Peter Obi

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has said that Nigerian youths are now ready to save the country.

Obi also said that the youths, the Labour Party which represents Nigerian workers and the like minds are the structures Nigeria needs for democracy to survive.

He added that the ‘structures’ are ready to move mountains to save Nigeria.

The former Anambra State Governor said this in a statement delivered on his twitter handle on Thursday.

"From where I stand, I dare to proclaim that Nigeria’s Democracy Must Survive!

"The new alliance that we seek is between Nigerian Youths, the Labour Party, which represent Nigerian workers, and Like Minds. Collectively, it is an alliance of the OBIdients!.

"Going forward, we must look for ways to move Nigeria beyond oil.

"We must end this criminality called ‘oil subsidy’.

“Nigeria today is vastly polarised and wrecked by divisions that run deep along religious, ethnic and regional lines.”

The Labour Party presidential candidate further condemned the lingering Strike of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) which haas resulted in the shutting down of government universities and kept students at home for over five months.

“There is a staggering level of corruption. Our universities have remained closed for over five months.

“While our healthcare system remains comatose, power generation and distribution are also at an all-time low.

“After we win the 2023 elections, we intend to use the instruments of job creation and regenerative investments to drastically reduce the high incidence of insecurity and poverty, while moving the economy from the consumptive to the productive mode.

“Undoubtedly, the greatest challenge we face beyond bad leadership, is lack of elite consensus...", he added.
