A presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi on Monday said the daily groans of insecurity in Nigeria was dragging the country into a collapsing state.
Obi made the comment in Jalingo when he visited the Taraba State PDP delegates ahead of the party’s presidential primaries.
He lamented that the continuous killings and kidnapping in the country were fast killing the nation’s economy and dragging it into a failed state, arguing that the people’s future must note toyed with.
According to him, Nigerians need a leader that would change the narrative and reposition the country to guarantee the future of her citizens.
“The nation’s economy is sinking on a daily basis and the insecurity status is increasing to a higher pick.
“The country’s situation now needs a president that understands the economy and is willing to handle insecurity to its drastic point.
“We need to move from sharing formula to production formula for the nation to reclaim her giant status,” Obi lamented.
Governor Darius Ishaku while commenting, expressed that Nigerians should either choose to leave in a Nigeria of promise that would transform their children’s future or a Nigeria of kidnapping that has thrown the people into a shamble without a future.
Ishaku described Peter Obi as an excellent man who is best to fix the Nigeria of the people’s dream.
Earlier, Dr. Doyin Okupe the campaign (D.G), told delegates that they were in Taraba not to campaign for Peter Obi as a person but for a change and better Nigeria.
According to the (DG), the aspirant has distinguished himself during his days as governor of Anambra state and has proven his leadership qualities that he is capable of reclaiming the nation’s lost glory and building the desired Nigeria.
