Peter Obi, the 2023 presidential candidate for the Labour party has called on Nigerians to make conscious efforts to take back their country Nigeria.
The Punch reports that Obi made the call in Owerri, the Imo state capital city during the inauguration of the new secretariat of the Labour Party which was donated by a supporter of the Peter Obi movement.
Speaking at the inauguration, the former governor of Anambra state warned that Nigeria cannot continue on the path that it was headed.
Expressing his displeasure about how most presidential candidates were more interested in taking over the country than focus on solving some of Nigeria’s challenges, Obi said he was ready to redirect leadership and pull it out of its sorry state.
He also assured that once he gets hold of Nigeria’s leadership, he would hand it over to the youth and the other citizens who had borne the brunt of bad leadership all the while.

“As you know, campaigns have not started. So, I am not here for campaigns. I am here to receive from a wonderful supporter, who gave us this building to support our Labour movement.
“We have not started campaigns. When campaigns start, we will come and we will be able to tell you what we are going to do. But one thing we will assure you is that our journey is not a normal campaign. We are bringing back Nigerians, to take back Nigeria.
“We are going to take back Nigeria and give it to the youth where it belongs. When that time comes, you will know. We will be able to change this country. It cannot continue the way it is, today”.
