Datti Baba-Ahmed and I have best experience to tackle insecurity, says Peter Obi



Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), says he and Datti Baba-Ahmed, his running mate, have the best experience to handle the challenges of insecurity plaguing the country.


Obi spoke during a meeting with some north-east stakeholders in Abuja, on Monday.


He noted that the level of youth unemployment in the north is part of the factors fuelling insecurity in the region.


The LP presidential candidate said when the youths become engaged in legal activities like agriculture and commerce, insecurity will be a thing of the past and Nigeria will move from consumption to production.


 “Youth unemployment is nearing 50 percent, so you have millions of youth in their productive age doing nothing, not knowing where the next meal will come from. In that situation, you are going to have crises. Crisis of insecurity, banditry, kidnapping,” Obi said.


“What Datti and I are promising you is number one; that we have the best combination, the best experience to start tackling the issue of security and I will say this, hold us responsible. Let nobody tell you we cannot solve insecurity in Nigeria. It can be stopped and done very quickly.


“We want to unite Nigeria. We want to see Nigerians being proud of their country again. We want to remove Nigeria from where it is today; from consumption to production and when you do that, you start pulling people out of poverty.”
