The Labour Party candidate for Edo South, Neda Imasuen, has called on Nigerians to define the direction the country will go by voting the right candidates into offices.
Imasuen, who is vying for a senatorial seat, said voting Labour Party candidates provided the best opportunity for Nigeria to return to the path of growth.
He said he had gone round the seven local government areas under his senatorial district, seen the problem facing the people and was in the right person to bring the needed succour to the people.
Noting that the presidential flagbearer of the party, Peter Obi, was in the best position to lead the country out of the present political and economic quagmire, Imasuen called on Nigerians not to miss the opportunity of bringing the needed change to the country.
He said, “As we go to the polls on Saturday, we should reflect on why we are doing so. This election will define the direction and the way forward for our country. We need to change the course of our direction to a good one.
“The problems of insecurity, inflation, unemployment and many others that are bedevilling the nation can be solved by voting the right people into office. We must vote people who are competent, knowledgeable and respect the rule of law.
“The present government has been in the forefront of flouting the law and that is why we are here at this moment. Are we better off than we were 15 years ago? The answer is no. So, we must start to vote the right people in power.
“As a party, we will engage the people and find enduring solutions to all these problems,” he added.
Imasuen noted that he had a good chance of winning the election due to his interactions with people in the Senatorial District, adding that he would bring his experience of working with Senator Mattew Urhoghide for seven years to bear in his performance.
