Atiku’s Presidential Running Mate, Peter Obi, Advocates Revolution In Nigeria

Peter Obi

Vice Presidential Candidate to Atiku Abubakar, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 23, 2019 elections, Mr. Peter Obi, has advocated the option of revolution as the only way to save Nigeria and launch her into the league of countries towing the paths of development.

Peter Obi, who spoke on November 13 at Baze University, Abuja, explained that the nature of the revolution he is advocating is not the one with guns and cudgels, but the type that sees digital camera displacing manual ones; electric cars threatening to displace fuel-driven cars; knowledge economy displacing baggage economy; industries displacing manual production, among others.

Peter Obi who was once  governor of Anambra State spoke on the theme: “The Role of Young Nigerians in the Development of Sub-Saharan Africa.”

The PDP Vice Presidential candidate said that young Nigerians must be made to understand that nations that are doing well today went through revolution and that, that is what Nigeria needs to drive development within sub-Saharan Africa.

He advised the youth to remain committed to positive ideals. He reminded them that one of the problems of Nigeria is the celebration of impunity, whereby Nigerians clap and dance with those destroying the country because of their ability to part with stolen money.

Peter Obi also advised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the police, as well as other security agencies and organisations that are directly or remotely involved in the conduct of election to see the elections holding tomorrow (Saturday) in Kogi and Bayelsa states as opportunities to redeem the bartered image of Nigeria as a country incapable of conducting free and fair elections.

The former governor, who spoke at a separate event: the 7th anniversary lecture of News Express at Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, recalled the gains Nigeria recorded from the conduct of elections during the immediate past Goodluck Jonathan Administration.

Such elections, he claimed, restored the hope of Nigerians on elections as a means of freely expressing their franchise as against what he called the “return to kangaroo elections marred by violence and all that was vile” as recorded during the last election.

He insisted that free and fair conduct of Saturday’s elections would restore hope to the country, adding: “Besides, it would also encourage well-meaning Nigerians to join in the future elections.”
