The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi has promised to lead and drive the country to the satisfaction of Nigerians.
Obi said in 2023, Nigerians would no longer allow “drivers that don’t know where we are going” to lead the country.
According to him, nobody knows where the country is heading.
The former Anambra Governor spoke at the Labour Party and Coalition for Peter Obi leadership summit in Abuja on Thursday.
The summit had coalition groups working for the presidential bid of the former Anambra Governor in attendance.
Obi said his job in 2023 is to wrest power from those who hold it presently and return it back to the people.
He said his administration would provide leadership which he said had been lacking.
Obi said: “Our job is to take power from those who have it and give it back to you. We have a country called Nigeria but we don’t have Nigerians. What we want to do is to create Nigerians.
“The only way to create Nigerians is to make people to have hope in Nigeria and the only way they will have faith in Nigeria is that there is hope in Nigerians.
“The only thing that is lacking in this country is leadership. And that is what we intend to provide. We are not trying to do something else. Leadership is what Datti and I want to provide. We are not looking for anything.
“In 2023, we will no longer allow drivers that don’t know where we are going. We will remove that driver. We will not allow him to continue. We will put another driver to continue because what we have now, and what is happening in Nigeria is that you don’t know where you are going, the driver doesn’t know where the vehicle is going, so every road leads us there.
“But we don’t want to worry. All we say is that 2023 onwards, we will no longer allow that situation. For now, we will manage it to the end.”
