Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has promised Nigerians that he will not deceive them like politicians did in the past when trying to get into office.
Obi made the promise on Monday while addressing party members and supporters during his campaign rally at the Muhammed Dikko Stadium, Katsina.
The former Governor of Anambra state also vowed to tackle hunger, insecurity and unemployment if elected president in February.
He appealed to the electorates to have faith in him and his party as they are ready to serve the country with all the strength in them.
Obi said; “People, through us, have chosen to build a new Nigeria. When we have security, we shall open our borders. Ours is to sack poverty in Nigeria. We cannot fight poverty without opening our borders but we shall put in place adequate security first.
“We know you have always been deceived by the people you voted for in the past. We in the Labour Party will not deceive you. We appeal to you to vote for us and I assure you, we will not deceive you.
“We shall fight hunger; we shall fight poverty and we shall ensure that there is security in Katsina and all parts of the country.
“We however appeal to you to please vote for us to deliver all the good things we have for you. We assure you of our commitment if you vote for us.”
He stated this during an interview with NTA while talking about his plans to lift millions of Nigerians out of poverty.
Obi reiterated his position that the moment he commences a system which promotes production there will be more revenue to cater to the needs of the less privileged.
The former Anambra state governor, however, said that he is dealing with a criminal structure and he is aware that it will not be easy for him to win but with the help of Nigerian youths it can be done.
