The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi has made a pledge to Nigerians.
Obi asked Nigerians to hold him responsible for any promise he makes during the campaign, this is as he asked Nigerians to vote for him.
Obi stated this while addressing some party faithful at the IBB Square in Makurdi, the Benue State capital, on Wednesday.
He asked his supporters and Nigerians to hold him accountable for any commitments he makes after winning the 2023 election, adding that he will not abandon them.
He said: “What I want to say to Nigerians is that I want Nigerians to hold me responsible. Our government will not remain in Abuja; it will go to the states. I will listen to their problems.
“We will secure and bring peace to Benue State. Those who want to go back to their villages will go back. Those who want to go back to their farms will go, and we will support them. Our government is about securing Nigeria. We will ensure that we restructure the entire security infrastructure in Nigeria, and we will give them all the moral support.
“FG under me and Datti will support every state. Everything I say today, take it. Hold us responsible. We will start building a new Nigeria where there will be law and peace.”
The former Governor of Anambra State also promised that his party will lift Nigeria out of its current situation and make things work again.
Obi decried the backwardness of the country and the state and raised the hope that his administration if given the mandate, would change things for the better.
He said, “We will secure Nigeria and bring peace to Benue, and we will ensure that Benue works. I know what is happening in Benue; somebody said Benue is a civil servant, but to me, Benue is one and a half times bigger than Israel, and we will make the state viable as Israel under my watch. We will make Benue create wealth because we want our youths to be self reliant and our government will be for youths and women.
“The way River Nile is to Egypt is how Rivers Niger and Benue ought to be to Nigeria, so if we are given the mandate, we will dredge both Niger and Benue rivers.”
