Barely six days after visiting Gombe State, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Mr Peter Obi returned to the state yesterday to canvass more votes from the electorate.
Obi, while addressing supporters at the Olusegun Obasanjo Stadium, in Kaltungo community of Kaltungo Local Government Area, said he would revamp the agriculture sector. He said revamping the sector was part of his plans in the ‘New Nigeria’ he hopes to build, if elected president at the polls.
The former Anambra State governor pledged to reverse the situation that had resulted in poverty and hunger amongst citizens of the country in the last 20 years.
Obi said if elected his administration will ensure that farmers will go back to farming. He said: “Datti and I are committed to a new Nigeria. In the last 20 years, Nigeria can only produce poverty, hunger, insecurity and unemployment. Believe in the two of us, we came here because we believe in you.”
The LP presidential flag bearer also promised to create job opportunities for youths and graduates across the country, adding that such would only be achieved if the youths vote for him during the forthcoming election.
