Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, has urged Nigerian voters to cast ballots without taking their ethnicity or religion into account during the general elections in February.
This accusation was made by Obi on Saturday in Osogbo while he was joined by his running mate, Datti Baba Ahmed, during the Labour Party presidential campaign rally.
He noted that political parties and their structures have crippled Nigeria and urged the electorates in the State to vote out political parties that claimed to have structures.

In his words, “All these challenges are caused by those who say they have party structures. But these structures have crippled Nigeria. I want me and you to destroy these structures by voting them out next month.”
He revealed that he has plans to secure Nigeria and transform the country from a consumer to producer nation.
“We will change Nigeria from a consuming country to a producing country. These people kept on bragging that they have structures. Yet, they are not doing anything. They are not producing anything in this State, youths are unemployed, we will change these challenges.
“We are going to secure and unite Nigeria. We want a Nigerian to be proud of being a Nigerian. We will deliver a secured Nigeria. We don’t want Nigerians to be in the IDP camp, we don’t want you to be a slave in your own country,” he said.

Obi noted that there were significant issues that needed to be addressed, including youth unemployment, poverty, and hunger.
“Nigerians are hungry, youths have no job. It is not safe to travel anywhere in Nigeria today,” he lamented.
He stated that if elected president, he will lead Nigeria in the fear of God and give top attention to young employment and job development.
Obi visited Ekiti State on Friday, January 6, 2023, as part of the Labour Party’s presidential campaign.
