Nigeria Must Produce To Survive,” – Dr. Peter Obi

Dr. Peter Obi, former Governor of Anambra State and foremost presidential hopeful under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said Nigeria must transit from a consuming to a producing nation to pull her citizens out of poverty.

Former Governor Obi who made the assertion while answering questions from journalists after a consultative meeting with PDP stakeholders in Port Harcourt, River State, on Monday, said that the country must live within its means by cutting down on the cost of governance and investing in human capital development.

He said that it is unacceptable to have youths without means of livelihood despite the abundant resources in the country. Hence, poverty alleviation is an urgent task. He therefore tasked delegates all over Nigeria to consider the building of a better country as they vote to choose their party candidates for the 2023 elections.

In his words:

“I am saying the same thing to Nigerians for the general elections. We must live within our means in this country. That is what we need to do urgently to take our people out of poverty.

“So we cannot allow our young people in their young age with the resources of this country to be living where they have no means of livelihood. That is what I want to do.

“That is why I said my basic function is to move the country from consumption to production. We have to change. No more sharing formular.

“I’m going to put the production formula in place. We must feed ourselves. We have enough land all over Nigeria for us to feed ourselves.”
