Abubakar Yunusa Abuja
The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has assured he is committed to building a better Nigeria.
Obi, who was in Aba, the commercial nerve of Abia State to flag off the governorship campaign of Dr Alex Otti at Ngwa High School field in Osisioma local government area, said the mission of the party was to ensure a just and secured nation.
The former Anambra Governor, who lamented factories in Nigeria have gone comatose under previous governments, promised to revive ailing industries if elected.
“Under Labour Party, Nigeria will not be the same again. Labour Party is committed to turning around Nigeria. We are committed to building a better Nigeria.
“Aba is a great town. When I came to Aba today, I went around Aba by air… All the factories in Aba have closed down.
“All the businesses in Aba and other parts of Nigeria have closed down because the government of Nigeria failed to show interest in reviving ailing industries. All these will be changed by the Labour Party.
“Today, nobody’s secured in Nigeria. Our commitment is to secure Nigeria.
“We will secure and unite Nigeria. Aba and Port Harcourt under our government will be 30mins.
“Under our government, Aba will bounce back. Aba will have 24-hour power supply. We are not here to make fake or false promises. We are telling you what to do, hold us accountable and responsible,” he said.
Obi said that he was coming to rescue the State from the hands of those that have held it back for the past 23 years.
According to Obi, his government would create jobs for the teeming unemployed Abians, clear arrears of pensions and salaries and gratuities.
Obi who lamented the impassible condition of roads in the state said his mission to rebuild would start as soon as he was sworn in.
