Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP) Presidential candidate, has said he would rather die than fail his supporters.
He stated this while speaking at the Editors Forum, an initiative of the Nigerian Guild of Editors.
The former Governor of Anambra state said he is determined not to fail those that believe in him and he vowed to serve Nigerians.
Obi said; “I did not know many of them (supporters), but I vow not to disappoint them.
“I am determined not to fail them. I would rather die than fail them. I am going to serve them”.
He also said that the right leadership would eliminate most of Nigeria’s challenges. The LP presidential flagbearer noted that if the nation is productive, three-quarters of its challenges can be solved.
“We cannot have that number of people living in poverty and not have criminality, banditry and so on. We must remove sharing formula and replace it with the production formula.
“The hope of this country is the vast uncultivated land, not that oil we are seeing. My commitment is to put Nigeria into production.
“It is not acceptable that we cannot feed ourselves. We must get the country to work; all it requires is the leadership that understands and can drive the process. I can do that,” Obi added.
