Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party (LP), has revealed his strategies for addressing Nigeria’s security concerns if elected in 2023.
The LP candidate pledged to revamp the nation’s security framework and rebuild public confidence in the government.
On Monday in Lagos, Obi gave a speech at the Private Sector Economic Forum of the 2023 Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) on the 2023 Presidential Election.
He claimed that while the nation does not short for brilliant ideas, its economic potential has been constrained by institutional weakness and a lack of political will to put them into practice.
He pledged that his administration will ensure multilayer law enforcement at the federal, state, and local levels and adequately provide them with cutting-edge technology to alleviate the economic hardships.
He urged the country to hold his government accountable if they fail to deliver on his promises.
He said, “Good governance must be aimed at providing good service and receiving constructive criticism and moving forward with the goal of bringing back the trust of people to governance.
“Under my watch, all groups such as the youth, women, disabled, vulnerable, private sector, must be represented in my government’s decision making process seeing that I am committed to providing a demand driven leadership.
“As a trader, I am one of you and sincerely recognise your challenges and pain, and would provide my own solutions to the questions that have been raised, particularly, security which is impacting on all other economic problems.
“We have identified and prioritised seven critical areas in line with some Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) to ensure purposeful leadership as we secure and unite Nigeria with effective legal and institutional reforms.”
