Mr. Peter Obi of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has stated that if elected president of Nigeria in 2023, he will need only four years to reposition the country.
Addressing stakeholders from Anambra Central in Awka, Obi stated that Nigeria is currently unproductive and that it requires someone to transition it from a consumption to a productive nation.
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.
“I would fix insecurity, bad economy, poor electric power supply and ensure food security in the country within the shortest possible time as president.
“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.
“Let us give people conditions; if I am Mr President and if we do not have 20,000 megawatts in three years, I’ll go home”.
At the meeting, stakeholders in the zone endorsed the former governor of the state for president, saying their support was based on his impressive performance in the state while in office as governor.
