People have suffered,put your attention on rescuing them from poverty- Obi


Mr Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the February 25 presidential election, has urged Abia State Governor Alex Otti to focus on providing excellent governance to the people of the state, particularly the less affluent.

Obi argued that Nigeria’s less privileged citizens had endured enough and were subjected to unspeakable suffering.

The former governor of Anambra State made the announcement on Monday via his Twitter handle, following a thanksgiving service held in Otti’s honor on Sunday.

Obi said he urged Otti to prioritise programs and policies focusing on health, education and pulling people out of poverty.

“The less privileged people in Nigeria have been subjected to many untold hardships and have suffered enough. Programs and policies focusing on health, education and pulling people out of poverty should be highly prioritised.
