If elected president next month, Labour Party candidate Peter Obi has made it clear how he intends to address the country’s security issues.
Goldennewsng reports that Obi stated at Channels Television’s People’s Town Hall 2023 on Sunday that, if elected, security personnel would be highly motivated to carry out their responsibilities to the fullest extent possible.
He stated, “For our men and women in the security, we will ensure that they are motivated, supported, and properly insured, and that they are confident that their families are protected in the event that something happens to them.” Transparency is required in all military and other sector procurement. It must be visible and measurable. The days of acting in secret are over.
“We need to involve every community in Nigeria in security, where each community shares information with other communities and secures their own community.
“We cannot wait for all of us to die before doing something; we must be alive for the constitution to be amended. He made a promise, “I will use my powers as President and Commander-in-Chief to secure Nigeria as soon as possible.”
Obi, who said he would use up all of the carrots before bringing sticks, talked about a personal experience he had when he went to a camp for internally displaced people in Benue state.
“In the state of Benue, I went to an IDP camp. I listened to their concerns and assured them that, if I became president of Nigeria, I would “take your concerns personally because as long as you are in IDP camp, Nigeria and Nigerians are in IDP camp.”
Datti Baba-Ahmed, Obi’s running mate, said in his opening statement that the former governor of Anambra State was ready to tackle important issues that could unlock Nigeria’s potential.
We will deal with unprecedented and worsening corruption. Because this is becoming an election based on character supported by records, competence, and capacity, we deserve the votes of Nigerians. Because they have voted based on ethnic and religious lines for a long time, Northern Nigeria is paying a huge price today. We are going to stop the killings and start the healing; halt the theft and begin the keeping; He stated, “Stop the decline of our currency and begin the ascent of our society.”
The former governor of Anambra state stated that the desire to see a new Nigeria in which Nigerians would be proud of their country motivated him to seek support in the presidential election.
I chose to participate in this race because we want to begin transforming Nigeria for Nigerians. He stated, “We want to build a nation where everyone will be respected,” stressing that if a leader wants Nigeria to succeed, he or she must sacrifice his or her own interests and those of his friends and groups. We are prepared to accomplish that, and that is the only way Nigeria can succeed,” he assured.
In the meantime, the LP presidential candidate attributed the nation’s failure to meet its international crude oil sale quota to unidentified government officials.
“The people in the government are enabling the oil theft that is taking place in Nigeria, so Nigeria is unable to reach the foreign quota of oil sales on the international market.”
In addition, Obi promised to revive the sector within his first four years in power in order to address the ongoing power outage.
He stated, “Within four years in office, we will be able to distribute 20,000 megawatts of electricity to Nigerians, or even more,” emphasizing the importance of education to development.
“Education is an investment because the more educated your people are, the more development you will see. Health, education, and removing people from poverty will be my government’s top priorities, he added.
