On Tuesday, Mr. Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate in the most recent general election, emphasized that he wanted Nigeria to function rather than be in a desperate attempt to become the nation’s leader.

At the annual Leadership Conference and Awards, Obi accepted the “Leadership Politician of the Year 2023” award and gave a speech in Abuja in response.

Obi declared, “I am not desperate to be president; I am desperate to make Nigeria work,” adding that young Nigerians needed to be productively engaged to eliminate poverty and crime,” Obi said.

The former governor of Anambra State added that it was inappropriate for the war-torn nation of Ukraine to give grain to Nigeria while Niger State alone could feed all of Africa.

“We have no reasons to be poor. Poverty should never be part of our lives especially in the North,” Obi said, adding that with over 7,442,00 square meters of land, Nigeria can feed Africa.

“Ukraine has no reason to give us grain. Niger State can feed Nigeria, Africa with over 73, 000 square meters of land.

“The two biggest states in the North-East, Borno with over 70,000 square metres of land and Taraba, are four times the size of Belgium that is exporting food. There is so much we can do in the country if we have the right leadership.

“The more you remove people out of poverty, the more you have fewer criminals,” Obi pointed out.
