A People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, Mr Peter Obi has said that he needs just four years to reposition the country if elected president of Nigeria in 2023.
Addressing stakeholders from Anambra Central in Awka, Obi said Nigeria at the moment, is unproductive and therefore needs someone to move it from a consumption to a productive nation.
He said: “Nigeria must create jobs; it must give people the opportunity to earn their livelihood, and it is not rocket science.
“I have travelled to over 30 countries and I still say that all I need is four years to position Nigeria on the path of progress”, Obi said.
“I would fix insecurity, bad economy, poor electric power supply and ensure food security in the country within the shortest possible time as president.
“Who says we can’t enjoy a steady power supply in this country? Egypt, between 2016 and today, has doubled its power generation and distribution from 28,000 megawatts to 58,000 megawatts. Vietnam has doubled its own from 38 to 76.
“Let us give people conditions; if I am Mr President and if we do not have 20,000 megawatts in three years, I’ll go home”.
At the meeting, stakeholders in the zone endorsed the former governor of the state for president, saying their support was based on his impressive performance in the state while in office as governor.
Mr Obi is one of seventy persons including four sitting governors that have indicated an interest in the plum office under the banner of the PDP.
