Datti Baba-Ahmed, a vice presidential candidate for the Labour Party, claims that if his party is chosen to lead Nigeria during the February 2023 presidential election, it will end the current security problems that plague the nation.
He made the pledge in a Sokoto interview with a few chosen journalists when he also voiced confidence that the Labour Party would triumph in the 2023 presidential election.
He claimed that his party would heavily rely on technology and involve stakeholders to safeguard every square meter of Nigerian land and put an end to terrorist and bandit activities.
Due to Peter Obi, the party’s presidential candidate, who has extensive experience and knowledge in economic topics, Baba-Ahmed further pledged that his party would deliberately implement programs and policies to revive the country’s economy and stop the rising inflation.
He added that if the Labour Party assumes control of the government, the ongoing conflict between the Federal government and the Academic Staff Union of the University will be resolved since education will be given the highest priority under their rule.
Meanwhile, Oby Ezekwesili, a former minister of education, gave Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) a better rating than other front-runners for the presidency in 2023.
Ezekwesili claimed that despite the nation’s problems with leadership, the former governor of Anambra possesses qualities that others do not.
“Somebody says to you, between a cast of possible presidents that include the three frontrunners that we currently have – a possible President Tinubu, Atiku, and Obi – do you need anybody to tell you where would be going? It would be an Obi.”
Ezekwesili grades Obi higher than other leading contenders while bemoaning the current political system to which she claimed the Labour Party flagbearer belonged.
“Regardless of the fact that he comes from that particular political class that we are talking about, he still at least represents many more shapes than the other two top candidates (in reference to Atiku and Tinubu),” she added.
