2019 Election is About the Survival of Nigeria – Obi

“The 2019 election is not about Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and President Muhammadu Buhari, but about the survival of Nigeria.” This was the Vice Presidential candidate of the PDP speaking to the press at Amichi shortly after the dedication of the new Secretariat and the School of Nursing of the Amichi Anglican Diocese at the weekend.

Obi said that the present Government had shown great incapacity for governance that had manifested in all the vices plaguing the country and should not be allowed to continue.

Speaking further, he cited examples of the insecurity in different part of the country such as Borno and Zamfara,  homes of the Chief of Army Staff and Chief of Defence Staff, respectively, and even Katsina state, the home of President Buhari.

On the economy, Mr Obi regretted that Nigeria cannot be said to have any economic base at the moment when  Nigerian youths in their productive ages had been rendered unproductive due to lack of vision, planning and effective implementation. He said it was unfortunate that under Buhari’s APC government, Nigeria had become the poverty  capital of the world.

Mr Obi frowned at a situation where a quarter of Nigeria’s 2019 budget is devoted only to service of debt, a situation he said portended grave danger for the country.

Obi expressed optimism that with the detribalised and hard working Atiku, Nigeria would be made to  start working again.
