Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, on Saturday promised to solve Nigeria’s flood challenge and ensure the country attains sufficiency in food production if elected in 2023.
He spoke on Saturday at a rally in Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital at the commencement of his campaigns ahead of next February election.
The former Anambra State governor said his government will move Nigeria from consumption to production and job creation.
He promised to fix Nigeria’s power conundrum, amongst others, and wondered why the Super Eagles couldn’t qualify for Qatar 2022 World Cup starting next month.
After he observed a one-minute silence in honour of all flood victims across the country, Obi said, “I assure you if we come into power, we will solve this flooding problem.”
“We are not going to do it overnight but we will start solving it. It will not take 30 years. The Federal Government said it will take 30 years, it will not take 30 years for us to solve it.
“Let me assure you, the government Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed will change Nigeria for good,” he said.
