Give me opportunity to rule Nigeria to make change — Obi

The Labour Party (LP), Presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections, Peter Obi, has appealed to Nigerians to give him the opportunity to rule Nigeria to change the narrative of things in the country.

Obi made the appeal while flagging off the campaign for the LP Governorship candidate Sen. Athan Achonu on Tuesday in Owerri for November 11 election, held at Kanu Nwankwo mini stadium, Owerri.

Obi declared that Achonu was elected through the rigorous processes of the primary elections.
He said, “I have said it publicly, I will change Nigeria. I know what it takes to change Nigeria, Imo; change everywhere”.

He said: “What we are saying, give us the chance. I have said it repeatedly. You have seen Abia. Very soon, you will see changes. In Abia today, we people have hope. That is governance. That is what we want. We want Nigeria that they are preaching, that we don’t have.”

He urged the electorate to cast their votes where there is an inscription of human beings (Papa Mama and Pikin) in the Governorship elections in Imo, Bayelsa, and Kogi for LP candidates.

In his speech, the LP National Chairman Julius Abure, who handed in the flag to Achonu, repeated the authenticity of Achonu as the guber candidate in the state.

He appealed to the people of Imo State not to listen to another individual parading themselves as authentic.

Abure maintained that insecurity, hunger, poverty, and lack of infrastructure would disappear if Achonu is voted in as governor of Imo State in the November election.

In his solidarity speech, Governor Alex Otti of Abia State clarified that he supervised the process that produced Achonu, stressing that he was confident that Achonu would replicate what his administration has achieved in 100 days in office.

After receiving the flag, the LP Governorship candidate Sen.Athan Achonu assured that Imo State will be the first state in Nigeria to produce a man with one hand.

He promised to make Imo residents and indigenes happy if voted into office on November 11
Achonu pledged to make “employment, the building of factories and conduction of local council elections” within one year he assumes office.

He assured that his would-be administration would make the cargo arm of the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport, Owerri to be functional while the gas deposits and other natural resources would be harnessed.

Otti promised to open the 26 healthcare centres he had built as the contractor while assuring to end insecurity and lack of electricity supply in the state.

The occasion was attended by the national chairman of the party, Julius Abure; the governor of Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti; members of the national executive of the party; the Director General of Athan Achonu Campaign Organization, Chime Nzeribe; singer, Onyeka Onwenu; and numerous party members and supporters.
