The 2023 presidential flag bearer of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has reminded the presidency that Nigerians need the fulfillment of their campaign promises in tackling insecurity in the nation.
The former Anambra State Governor stated that even if the present administration cannot achieve 100 per cent of those promises, they should show 100 per cent effort.
Obi took to social media to call on the presidency to the killings and kidnapping not only in the capital city but the entire country.
He said, “Nigerians therefore now implore them to fulfil their campaign promises. Even if they do not achieve 100% results, we want to see 100% effort.”
He opined that no government official should be allowed to travel abroad, stating that it is the duty of all to solve insecurity problems in the country.
“We deal with the ugly situation facing us at home,” his post read on Tuesday. “It is now time for we the leaders, to take all forms of serious measures to tackle the situation.
“As terror attacks, banditry, kidnappings and violence continue to rage through the country, it is more concerning now with the surge of violence spreading through the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja,” he said.
“It is now time for we the leaders, to take all forms of serious measures to tackle the situation. It is unfortunate that President Muhammadu Buhari, in 2015, campaigned and won the elections on three items; Security, Economy and Corruption (SEC).
“After his Eight years in office, the situation has worsened in all three areas. The present administration, on assuming office, promised to deal decisively with the same situation — Security, Economy and Corruption.
“At the Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association held in Lagos in August 2022, the then Vice Presidential Candidate, Sen Kashim Shettima categorically stated that if APC is elected, he as Vice President would be in charge of security, while the President as an expert in economy would handle the economy.”
