The 2023 election is a few months away, and Nigerian citizens are already in a frenzy. This time, Nigerians don’t want to be caught in the web of apathy and political ignorance as they call out candidates of their choice.
A group of young Nigerians under the auspices of #TakeBackNaija# Movement has promised the Peoples Democratic Party,(PDP), of ten million votes at the 2023 presidential election, should the opposition party give its Presidential ticket to former Anambra State Governor, Mr. Peter Obi.
According to a report by Vanguard, Peter Obi, former Governor of Anambra State and the Vice Presidential candidate of the PDP has described as sad, the deterioration of Nigeria from better to worse rather than the other way round. He said that he is preoccupied with the thought of a better Nigeria, not how to win political elections in 2023.
Regretting that Nigeria has failed to achieve her potentials within the dreams of her nationalists, Obi said that the coming general elections were yet another opportunity for the people of the country to vote in those with proven records in resource management.
Peter Obi said Nigerians are of the habit of always being preoccupied by elections. He said politics for him was never about winning elections and being in a political office. He said people are not talking about the issues that is affecting the country, like the ASUU strikes that has kept the students out of schools, business that were not functioning properly and other vices.
He further added that he’s hoping to see a Nigerian society where all the sectors of the economy are functioning effectively to liberate the people from the shackles of underdevelopment and poverty sending most Nigerians to their early graves.
