Mr. Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s nominee for president, has once more pledged to take the initiative in resetting and retooling Nigeria to transform it from a consumer society to a productive one.
Obi made the promise in a series of tweets yesterday, hours after the movement held a big rally in Abuja. The tweets were part of his message to Nigeria’s voters about the important presidential election.

This is in line with what Obi said when asked why he visits markets for campaigns yesterday. He said he is drawn to markets because they serve as hubs for small and medium-sized businesses, which are the backbone of the Nigerian economy, as well as places for production, manufacturing, and distribution.


Obi assured Nigerians that if elected, he and his running mate Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmad would bring about the comprehensive change needed to move Nigeria forward.

The leader of the Labour Party tweeted: “Fellow Nigerians, it’s getting down to the wire with 7 days left until the big day. Our diversity is what makes us strong.
“Fellow Nigerians, we are in the final stretch – 7 days until the Main Day,” Obi wrote in the tweet. Our diversity is what makes us strong.

“Nigeria needs to be restarted and reset in all respects, including leadership and governance, property and personal safety, and economic and political freedom. Our shared obligations and values must be honored.

Obi added that the change he and Datti would pursue if elected would be comprehensive.
“We’ll restore national pride and patriotism. God and one’s country should be one’s loyalties. The rule of law and the constitution will take precedence.


In a message directed specifically at young people, the former governor of Anambra State said that he entered the race for them. “In this march to freedom, I have not come out for myself,” he continued. I have come out in support of the many young people who are losing faith in our beloved nation. Datti and I want to bring about a new, attainable Nigeria! I’ve come out in support of the countless women who are terrified of what the future will bring for themselves and their families.

I’ve come forward to defend the underprivileged who are debating whether being a Nigerian is sinful. I’ve come to them for them! Datti has come for them. We have been consistent in our message. Nigeria has the necessary human resources for effective leadership. Nigeria is also not short on plans and ideas for effective government.

As for why he goes to markets for campaigns, Obi said yesterday that he is drawn to them because they are hubs for small and medium-sized businesses, which are the backbone of the Nigerian economy, as well as places for production, manufacturing, and distribution.

Earlier today, Obi began a public tour of the Lagos Trade Fair Complex’s markets. A key component of Obi’s campaign is production.

He has said many times that if he were elected president, he would change Nigeria’s economy from one based on consumption to one based on production.


The LP candidate stated that turning our markets into the hub of economic activity would be the quickest way to carry out this plan of action. Obi, who likes to refer to himself as a trader, claimed that because he is a member of the business community, he gets along well with them.
