A presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, has said if he is elected Nigeria’s president, he will turn the nation from a consumption to a production economy.
Obi stated this when he met with PDP delegates in Kaduna State to solicit their support and vote during the forthcoming party primary.
The former Governor of Anambra State lamented the spate of insecurity in the country, noting that his administration will tackle the menace by pulling millions of citizens out of poverty through job creation and providing a conducive environment for businesses to thrive.
Speaking further, the presidential hopeful said he would revive the moribund textile industries, which was one of the nation’s revenues earner and boost the agricultural sector for farmers in the north by providing incentives and other farming implements to farmers.
Obi urged the party delegates in the state to vote wisely and ensure they elect a presidential candidate that could address the numerous socioeconomic and developmental problems of Nigeria. He added that he is the best man for the job.
