The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has reiterated the need to vote for competent and credible leaders in the 2023 election as he rejects an award in Enugu State.
Truetells Nigeria reports that Obi during the ‘Shape the Future’ conference on Friday, organized by a group called the Boys Champion (BC), likened his presidential ambition to an applicant seeking a job.
This publication gathered that BC was founded by UN award-winning Nigerian, Noel Alumona, to support young boys and men on their journey to manhood through mentoring and training.
The former Governor of Anambra State at the event, rejected an award presented to him by the group, saying they should present it to him after he had won the 2023 election and finished his tenure as president.
According to him, he will value the award if he performs well in the office at the end of his tenure and Nigerians are happy with him.
Peter Obi warned the youths against making the wrong choice that would probably have revenge on them in the future.
He also noted that there is no room for experimentation in the 2023 election as his administration will remove the criminality structure and replace it with development.
The LP flagbearer added he would provide security for all Nigerians to enable farmers to go back to their farms to reduce food inflation.
He said: “I am an applicant seeking for job, that is why I appear before you my employer (Youths) and it is the turn of Nigerian youths to take back their country.
“I am committed to the job and hold me responsible if I fail you. If you do the wrong thing today, the future will take revenge on you.
“18 of us will say the same thing but you must verify what they are telling you. There is no room for experiment in 2023.
“We will remove their structure of criminality and replace it with the structure of development.
“We will provide manpower in security by employing more police and equipping them to tackle insecurity.
“This is the only way we can move Nigeria from consumption to productive society by investing in youths and Nigeria must feed itself.
“My government will remove fuel subsidies and use the money to create jobs for the youths and this is the future we want to bring”
