Peter Obi will be declared president very soon - LP

Peter Obi, the 2023 presidential candidate for the Labour Party (LP), expressed his concern on Monday about the high rate of kidnappings, killings, and clashes in Nigeria.

Peter Obi stated that approximately 7,000 Nigerians have been kidnapped in the past year alone, highlighting the country’s status as one of the most challenging and hungry nations, especially in the North.

In a post on X, Peter Obi urged the Federal Government to take immediate action to address the deteriorating situation in Nigeria.

“In the past 1 year, about 7000 Nigerians have been kidnapped, with about 700 kidnapped in the last 3 weeks, notwithstanding the violent crimes and killings that occur in every part of the nation, which must have included us in one of the world’s riskiest countries to live in.

“A report by the globally respected publication, Financial Times, on March 12, 2024, described Nigeria’s kidnapping racket as a sign of a failed state. With all of these happening in our nation, how then can we attract foreign investors, & retain the confidence of local investors?

“We have become one of the hungriest nations in the world and one of the most difficult nations in the world to live in, with food prices constantly going out of the reach of most Nigerians. Power supply is abysmally poor and Nigerians are now mostly in total darkness,as over 60% are without power supply. Even those in perceived privileged areas now go for days without power supply.

“We now hold the enviable position of having the highest number of out of school children, with about 20 million out-of-school children. We need to take our children off the streets and give them access to basic education.

“I, therefore, urge our executive and legislative arms to consider the many challenges facing our nation and re-allocate resources to these very critical areas. This is the time for complete sacrifice. A New Nigeria is still very POssible,” he wrote.
