On Monday in Lagos State, Labour Party Presidential Candidate Peter Obi stated that he would sooner die than disappoint his fans.
Obi also stated that the correct leadership would solve the majority of Nigeria’s problems by shifting the country from consumption to production.
The former Anambra State governor addressed at the Nigerian Guild of Editors’ Editors Forum (NGE).
He stated that the country was facing numerous issues, mostly because it was consuming rather than producing.
According to him, if Nigeria becomes more productive, three-quarters of its problems will be solved.
He mentioned the challenges to include unemployment, poverty, criminality and insecurity.
Obi said, “We cannot have that number of people living in poverty and not have criminality, banditry and so on.
“We must remove the sharing formula and replace it with the production formula.
“The hope of this country is the vast uncultivated land, not that oil we are seeing.
“My commitment is to put Nigeria into production.”
On his supporters, Obi promised not to disappoint them.
“I am determined not to fail them. I would rather die than fail them. I am going to serve them,” Obi said.
