“For several years, we have been under insecurity, poverty, they closed our borders, poverty, and there is no work.
“The Nigeria we are offering you is a new Nigeria where there will be security, Nigeria will be united, there will be jobs and I will move Nigeria from consumption to production,” Obi said.
The Labour Party Presidential flagbearer appealed to Jigawa electorate not to vote next month based on tribe, ethnicity or religion, adding that no tribe, ethnic group or religion buy food cheaper than others.
He also told the people not to accept when anyone tells them it is their turn to become president but insist it is the turn of the people of Nigeria to take back their country.
