I’m No Stranger To Nigerian Problems – Peter Obi

Kosi Uchenna

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, has asked Nigerians to consider the background of all the presidential candidates seeking to lead the country before casting their vote.

Obi during an interactive session with Nigerians that welcomed him in Frankfurt, Germany on Friday, said that as a Nigerian that lives in Nigeria, he is not a stranger to the problems confronting the country.

The LP presidential candidate and former Governor of Anambra State urged electorates to consider the agenda and capacity of every aspirant before making a choice.

Obi said, “When you listen to us, go and check our background, this is not a time for somebody to show us his qualifications, I live in Nigeria and I know Nigeria and what Nigerians need. I am not a stranger to Nigerian problems.

“I am a trader but I have the privilege to go to some of the best of schools like Oxford, Cambridge, and other Ivy league institutions, but I always say to people that educational qualification is not the same as integrity.

“Listen to all the presidential candidates, not through proxy. Let anyone who wants to be your President come forward himself and speak to you directly, because he is the one you will hold responsible for whatever happens to Nigeria under his care.

“This campaign is not a campaign you are going to speak through somebody, that person needs to come and directly tell us what he is going to do for our country and we must take note of whatever he says and hold him by his words.

“We also don’t want that would be carried to this place in a wheelchair, but must consider his capacity, competence, integrity and commitment.”
