2023: We Want To Destroy Structures That Produced 133m Poor Nigerians – Obi
Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Mr Peter Obi, today took on his opponents who often dismiss him as not having structure.
He said part of the reasons he is contesting as President in the 2023 Elections is to dismantle the structures which his opponents allegedly used to hold Nigeria in bondage.
He said: “The structure they have today is the structure we want to destroy. It is the structure of criminality. It is the structure that produced 133 million people living in poverty. It is the structure that produced 20 million out-of-school children. It is the structure that has made Nigeria surpass India in infant mortality. It is the structure that will destroy Nigeria and we want to destroy that structure.”
Obi made the statement today at a campaign in Akwa Ibom State, where he also told reporters that he was not demoralised by Monday’s conviction of Dr Doyin Okupe by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja
