“Nigerian youths are tired,of knowing someone before you can gain employment,vote for inclusiveness,let’s give Nigeria a president that is competent and can deliver us” she said
The National chairman of Labour Party, Mr Julius Aguye urged the people to vote wisely in the forthcoming election saying peyer Obi has been tested and trusted and he’s the one that will run a transparent inclusive government, if elected
” There’s no gainsaying that Nigeria is at commatose, there is Insecurity everywhere, farmers can no longer go to farms,we cannot travel without fear of being kidnapped, failed leadership has failed us ,but the beauty of democracy is that it provides avenue for legitimate change through the ballot so, vote wisely”
The presidential candidate who said he was impressed with the turn out of the crowd said if elected he will only come to offer selfless service to Nigerians and curb corruption.
His words “Good people of Kogi state,we are not here to buy your vote,we are here to tell you how we are going to save the country,we want to unite Nigeria,we want to bring the family back together,we want to bring back the rule of law,we want to remove Nigeria from consumption to production country
“We will make sure that production starts from local level,we will increase minimum wage since the minimum wage today can hardly sustain workers,we should be able to produce enough for consumption and even export to create wealth.
“We will consult before taking any decisions on any matter that affects you because we believe in inclusiveness and rule of law, I can assure you that if given the chance, I will never disappoint you ” he added
