The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi has urged Nigerians to collect the money offered to them by opposition political parties and still vote for him.
Obi made the call on Thursday at the Labour Party presidential rally in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The money belongs to Nigeria but was “stolen” by those in government, Obi said.
He said: “Let me tell you, that money they are giving you is your money, collect it, eat it and vote for me.
The money that I will give to you is that you will be employed, you will have healthcare, you will get education, I will make society work and you will become rich. I want to build a society where everybody is secure, where a child of nobody will be able to become president of this country.”
Obi also expressed his intention to unite Nigeria and move it from consumption to production.
He urged Nigerians to hold him accountable while promising to revive the country, the same way he had “revived dead companies” in the past.
