Peter Obi has reacted to the comment made by NNPP presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso claiming that northerners are not going to vote for the Labour Party presidential candidate.
Speaking during an interview on Arise Television, Mr Peter Obi said that Kwankwaso’s comment is why we have over 100 million Nigerians living in poverty; We have consistently hired vehicle drivers to fly Nigeria’s aeroplane
Obi said; “The comment by the elder brother Kwankwaso is the reason why we have 100 million Nigerians living in poverty, 18 million Nigerian children out of school and about 52% of Nigerians either unemployed or under employed , because rather than vote for competent leaders, we will rather vote for incompetence due to a primitive belief of religion and ethnicity.
Tell me, today you can’t travel from abuja to kaduna by road or rail, is it because someone from the south east is in charge ? You can’t travel to Minna by road, is because someone from the south east is in charge? Yesterday we had an attack by bandits on the presidential convoy, in Katsina, is it because someone from the south east is in charge? Show me where people are prospering in the north or south? What we have consistently done in this country is to hire vehicle drivers to fly airplanes as pilots instead of hiring qualified pilots.
We have a huge problem and if you don’t know, this country will soon default on their debt servicing, schools are shut down, insecurity is everywhere, Nigeria is in a coma and when you are in a coma all you want is to survive, irrespective of where the surgeon who will keep you alive comes from “
