A former Governor of Anambra State and Vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Peter Obi, has said that Nigeria’s economy and security will get worse if the All Progressives Congress, APC, returns to power.
According to Obi, “only those who do not wish Nigeria well are still supporting the ruling APC.”
The former Governor spoke in Awka, Anambra State during a roadshow to create awareness among the people of the state concerning the February 16 election.
Obi invited the people 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 said if elected, what he did in Anambra was enough for anyone to know what he would do as Vice President.
He said, “It is not about INEC, it is about the people. If the people say yes to a change of government, definitely they will get it.
“I have contested election here in Anambra before, INEC did not give it to me, but because the people were behind me, I was able to get it,” Obi said.
He added, “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.”
