Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has stated that his administration will prioritise the welfare of the poor Nigerians if elected.
Obi made this known while speaking at the Success Conference 2022 on Saturday in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State.
He stated that the Nigerian people would be involved in both policy formulation and administration, adding that Nigerian youths would be the proponent of his agenda to transform the economy.
“The overall task of our leadership in 2023 is to streamline governance and ensure that it is responsive, transformative, and effective. We will demonstrate that good governance is all about providing the needed services to the people,” Obi said.
“If elected the next president of Nigeria, youths would be the main proponents of my main agenda to transform Nigeria from a consuming nation to a producing nation. The two main components of this agenda are human capital development and finance.
“Under my leadership, the federal government will prioritise the ability of our educational system to produce the necessary skilled labour force that coincides with the 21st-century labour market demand, alongside providing entrepreneurial education at all levels.”
Obi said health and education are vital to the development of the country, promising to ensure “at least 100 million poor Nigerians have access to free medical care”.
