…Urges Nigerians Not To Vote In Candidate Who Cannot Stand For 30 Minutes
Former Anambra State Governor and the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi has affirmed that Nigeria is sick and that it does not need sick person as president in lieu of numerous challenges bedeviling the country.
Obi,who made a visit to Enugu on Thursday for a campaign rally and at first held an interactive session on the sidelines at the UNN, his alma mater.
While addressing students of the University of Nigeria (UNN), Nsukka, Enugu State Business School, and officials of the institution , the former Anambra Governor warned Nigerians against voting for the wrong leader in the forth coming general elections.
At the interactive session, the Labour Party candidate stressed that Nigeria does not deserve a president that cannot stand for thirty minutes.
He added that a candidate whose background can’t be verified, whose age, identity, schools attended or his classmates and other details are shrouded in secrecy is also pushing to become the next president but warned Nigerians not to vote for such a person so as not to push the country into a bigger mess.
“This country is sick and should not be handed over to a sick person.
“I am not saying that anyone is sick. We have been here for over two hours, we don’t want people who can’t stand for 30 minutes. In the United States during elections, they go for debates; somebody once asked Barack Obama questions that are personal and he answered.
“But here in Nigeria, somebody wants to contest an election, we don’t know his real age, we don’t know his name, we don’t know the schools he attended. Nobody knows his real identity and he is pushing to lead everybody.
“My name is Peter Obi, I can say I went to CKC, went to the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. Both the VC today, and the DVC today, these are my schoolmates. We came to university the same year and left the same year.
“The people I went to school with, I can see them here today; my seniors and my juniors. How come we now have people who do not have classmates. This is very important.”
