Former Governor of Anambra and Peoples Democratic Party presidential aspirant, Peter Obi, has said he will reposition Nigeria in less than four years if voted as the president of the country in the next year’s general elections.
Obi stated this in Awka, the Anambra State capital during the Anambra Central Senatorial District Stakeholders’ Briefing/Town Hall Meeting organised by Senator Uche Ekwunife .
He said,“Nigeria must create jobs; it must give people the opportunity to earn their livelihood; and it is not a rocket science. I have travelled to over 30 countries and I still say it that all I need is four years to position Nigeria to the path of progress”, Obi said.
The former Anambra State governor said he would fix insecurity, bad economy, poor electric power supply and ensure food security in the country among others within the shortest possible time as president.
He added,”Who says we can’t enjoy steady power supply in this country? Egypt, between 2016 and today, has doubled its power generation and distribution from 28,000 megawatts to 58,000 megawatts. Vietnam has doubled its own from 38 to 76.
“What is happening here? Why are they wasting people’s time here? Let us give people conditions. If I am Mr President, if we do not have 20,000 megawatts in three years, I’ll go home”, Obi stated.
Meanwhile, Senators and other stakeholders in the state on Wednesday endorsed Obi for president.
They said their support for Obi’s presidential aspiration was based on his impressive performance when he was governor of the state from 2006 – 2014.
