Mr Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, promised to eradicate corruption if elected president on Saturday in Kafanchan, Kaduna State.
Obi made the vow during a meeting with traditional rulers in Kagoro, Kaura Local Government Area, in Kaduna State’s south.
He claimed that corruption was keeping Nigeria from reaching its full potential, thus the need to eradicate it.
“With your cooperation, I will tackle corruption and stop all areas of revenue leakages.
“We will end the wastages in government and start saving to restore our country.
“Opposition says I am stingy, but nobody has accused me or my running mate of corruption,’’ he said.
Obi restated his resolve to fight poverty as a way of reducing crimes.
“We must start pulling our people out of poverty because the more you reduce poverty the more you reduce crime,’’ he said.
The presidential candidate said he would work with traditional rulers to address security challenges facing Nigeria.
In his remarks, the Chief of Kagoro, Ufuwai Bonet, appreciated Obi for identifying with the people of Southern Kaduna.
He prayed God for leaders that would address the numerous challenges confronting Nigeria.
