2023:Peter Obi remains best option for new Nigeria- Ex Kogi PDP Guber aspirant Bayo Averehi
A former Governorship aspirant in Kogi State Bayo Averehi says voting the Presidential Candidate Senator of the ruling All Progressive Congress, (APC), Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will amount to a monumental and unprecedented disaster for Nigerians.
Addressing a press conference in Lokoja on Sunday, Averehi said the two parties have completely destroyed Nigeria in the last 24 years and does not deserve Nigeria vote on February 25th 2023.
Averehi, who was a Governorship aspirant in Kogi State under the People’s Democratic Party, described the Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi as the best option for a new Nigeria.
He berated both the PDP and APC for failing to address the issues of poverty, power outage, unemployment, strike, kidnapping, insecurity, bedevilling the Country today.
“Nigerians gave PDP 16 good years to fix things right in this Country, but the problem persisted. The issue of power outage, unemployment, strike, kidnapping, insecurity, persisted. We went ahead to give APC eight years to fix and change things. But unfortunately, the situation escalated.
“You will agree with me that, Nigerians have given PDP opportunity and APC opportunity. Now it is time to give another party opportunity, to fix this Country. It is time to give Labour Party, and Peter Obi to fix things right.
“Peter Obi needs to be given four years to change the narratives of this Country or get fired. Peter Obi will be fired if in four years, he does not change the narrative of this Country. It is not about individual, party or any structure.
“It is about the Nigerian project. With the present situation in the Country, it will be a monumental and unprecedented disaster for APC or PDP to win the Presidential election in 2023.
“Enough is enough. It is time we prove to the two major political parties that we have the power to hire and fire. So that, when next they are voted into power, they will not take us for granted”.
While admonishing Nigerians to come out en-mass and vote for the former Anambra State Governor, the former PDP Governorship aspirant in Kogi State said the 2023 Presidential election could either make or mar the future of Nigeria as a nation.
Continuing, Averehi said “Nigerians should come out on election day to vote a competent leader such as Peter Obi and his Vice Datti Baba-Ahmed. We must come out and prove a point to those who think they own Nigeria or that they are infallible.
“Let us prove to them that Nigeria belong to all of us. It is now conspicuous to all Nigerians, especially the Youths that what we need to do now is to vote for competence, capacity, and credibility. Let us sacrifice that day of election. Let us come out, either in sun, rain or any weather and vote for the right person which is Peter Obi and his Vice Datti Baba-Ahmed”.
