Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party has expressed confidence that he will win in the southwest at the 2023 general election.

He made this known during the first and second convocation ceremonies of the Dominican University, Samonda, Ibadan.

According to Obi, his number one structure is God, followed by the people who believe in what he is saying.

He said: “My number one structure is God, the number two is human beings, and you people are my structure because you believe in me and in what I am saying.

“The structure we have today is that of criminality and underdevelopment. These structures have ruined the country. So, the pertinent question is do you want to continue with the existing structure or do you want a new structure?”

Peter Obi noted that if elected in 2023, he would work hard to redirect Nigeria from consumption to production.

He added that he would increase the economic activities and support institutions, most especially the private sector to create jobs, by focusing on pro-poor activities that will pull the citizens out of poverty.

“I have proven that I can do the job and made promises that I will be committed to and deliver on. This is all about looking into what I had promised and delivered in the past.

“The job requires a lot of physical and mental energy; it is left for you to assess those who are most suitable for the job." Obi added that securing and uniting Nigeria and moving it from consumption to production is what is most important to him."
