The presidential flag bearer of the Labour Party (LP), Mr Peter Obi, has promised to rebuild the country if elected.
He made the promise while addressing party supporters at the Baptist Convention Ground on Friday, the venue of the LP’s Presidential rally in Benin.
He assured the people, particularly youths and women, of his commitment towards securing the nation for the overall interest of the people.
Obi further assured that if elected President of Nigeria, the people would no longer go to bed hungry.
“We will stop people from looting the nation’s treasury.
“It is about you (referring to the youths), with you, we will take back this country.
“Labour Party will stop nepotism, that is my commitment,” Obi said.
Earlier, the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, told Obi that his reputation preceded him.
The Oba made the remark when he received the LP presidential candidate and his running mate, Yusuf Datti, in his palace in Benin.
The traditional ruler maintained that the Benin throne, right from time immemorial, had remained apolitical as he was the father to all.
He said the throne was interested in the one who had the interest of Nigerians at heart, one who could make life meaningful for all.
