2023: Peter Obi promises to rescue Nigeria’s present economy

By NWANKWO, Grace Chinasa

The former Governor of Anambra State and Presidential aspirant, Peter Obi made promises to Nigerians if given the opportunity to be the next president in 2023.

He says he would rescue Nigeria from its present economic woes if he wins.
Obi, who is contesting on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said this on Tuesday, 19th April, 2022, in Enugu while meeting with party stakeholders for consultation.

After the meeting which was held at the party’s Secretariat, Obi while addressing journalists decried the state of Nigeria’s economy and the country’s debt burden.
“We even borrow to service debts. What we are sharing is finished. We need wealth creators. We need to move Nigeria from a consumptive nation into a productive nation.”

“The problem of Nigeria is leadership. The cumulative effect of the failure of our leadership in the past decades is what we are suffering from now. So we just have to do things right. Countries don’t fail overnight,” he said.

“Natural security is when human beings know where their next meal will come from. 98 million Nigerians are living below the poverty line. The poverty rate in Nigeria with a population of about 200 million people is far higher than that of China and India with populations of over 2.8 billion people combined.”

“Unemployment rate in Nigeria is the highest. More than fifty percent of our young people who are of production age are doing nothing”, he said.
