PDP Presidential aspirant, Peter Obi, has promised to prioritize poverty reduction by fighting unemployment if elected.
Mr Obi made the remarks at a meeting with PDP stakeholders and delegates from Sokoto and Zamfara states on Thursday at the party’s Sokoto party secretary’s office.
The former Governor of Anambra has declared his ability to address the economic and social challenges of Nigeria.
“I served as the Governor of Anambra state for eight years, I built stronger institutions in the state, promising to replicate such as president of the country when elected.
”I was the Vice Presidential candidate with Atiku Abubakar on the platform of PDP in 2019 and I leveraged on his experience as a captain with focus, integrity, tested resource management skills and contentment to achieve the feat.
”A society will work, only if people pursue the cause with strong determination,” Mr Obi said.
He noted that Nigeria had potential and human resources that if maximally exploited would ensure strong economic and social institutions, as obtained in other developed nations.
