Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has promised to preserve the rule of law if elected president on February 25.
The former Anambra State governor made this commitment at a town hall event hosted by the Imo state chapter of the LP in Owerri on Thursday.
While commending the organizers of the event for working to unite Nigerians which is in line with the Party’s agenda, Obi reaffirmed his commitment to building a new Nigeria that would be inclusive of people of all ethnic, religions, and preferences.
Obi further assured Nigerians that the nation’s suffering, insecurity, and poverty would end if he is elected the president of the country.
According to him, by transitioning the nation from consumption to production, his ascension would pave the path for economic growth and freedom.
“My government will work closely with state governments to build uncommon synergy, with the aim of all-inclusive governance for the overall good of all the citizens”, he said.
“Nigeria is blessed, we have all it takes to be a great country.
“All we need is the right leadership that will harness our potential as a country, such as the oil and gas in Imo, for our collective benefit.
“I will ensure respect for rule of law, secure and unite Nigeria and move the country from consumption to production.
“Vote for Labour Party, vote for human beings: papa, mama, pikin”.
