Labour Party (LP) Presidential Candidate in the 2023 General Elections, Peter Obi, on Sunday, asked Nigerians to vote for him based on his competence and not on ethnic or religious sentiments.
He made his position clear while speaking at the Presidential Town Hall series organized by Arise TV on Sunday.
The former Anamabra State Governor said that Nigerians should vote for him because he has the capacity to take the country out of its current predicament.
He contended that the Presidential race is nobody’s turn, rather it is the turn of the youth and the women.
“Don’t vote for me because I am from the South East, a Christian, an Igbo man, or it is my turn.
“I want you to vote for Peter Obi because I am qualified. Because I am competent and I know what I can do to put this country out of the brink,” he told the audience.
Obi stressed that there is the need to strengthen and revive the local vigilante system in the country and have them work together with the police, believing that it would go a long way in solving the country’s security challenges.
Answering a question from the audience on security, the LP Presidential hopeful said the “incumbent Government lacked pro-activeness and allegedly failed to adhere to intelligence in forestalling the Abuja-Kaduna train attack.”
Obi said if he was the President, he would have done things differently to avert the tragedy adding that there was a failure of the intelligence processor before the Abuja-Kaduna train incident happened, saying that from information available, there were already indications of insecurity within that rail corridor, as well as previous attempts and intelligence that were ignored.
