The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, has identified poor leadership and corruption as major challenges stalling Nigeria’s development, promising to fix both if elected President at the February 25 election.
Obi disclosed this on Thursday, during a town hall meeting with the business community in Owerri, Imo State capital.
He also vowed to tackle all forms of corruption.
Before the meeting, the LP standard bearer visited major markets in the State to woo the electorate. They included Alaba Spare Parts Market, Ogboshishi Timber Market, and Relief Food Market.
He promised economic stability to the traders who came out in their numbers to welcome him.
Some chieftains of the LP who came with the former Governor of Anambra State expressed optimism that with the level of reception Obi is getting from several parts of the country, he will win the February 25 presidential election.
Obi who enjoys huge youth followership is battling it with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s Atiku Abubakar and Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Nigeria’s number one seat.
With less than 10 days to the presidential and National Assembly elections, political parties and their candidates are crisscrossing the country wooing voters and giving reasons they should be voted.
