Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi has said the flagbearer of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso is the reason Nigeria is a mess today.

His comment comes after the NNPP in their merger talks with Labour Party, asks Peter Obi to be the vice-presidential candidate to Kwankwaso in the 2023 elections.

In response, Peter Obi slammed him saying that Nigeria is in a mess because people are voting for incompetence based on a primitive consideration of ethnicity and religion.

Speaking in an interview with Arise TV on Wednesday, July 6, the former governor of Anambra said he is contesting the presidential election because he is competence enough to pull Nigeria out of the mess.

He urged Nigerians not to vote based of tribe and religion but based on competence. He said he is committed to dealing with the problems of the country which ranges from economic issues, education and security among others.

“Rabiu Kwankwaso is the reason we have 100 million Nigerians living in poverty, the reason we have 18 million Nigerian children out of school, is the reason we have over 55 percent in under employment, is the reason we have all the problems. Nigeria is insecure because rather than vote for competence, we will choose to vote incompetence, based on a primitive consideration of ethnicity and religion.

“My commitment is let us campaign and deal with the issue of the problem of the country, there is a lot of problem in this country. This country will soon default in the debt service. Our schools, university shutdown and we are talking about who will vote for who. Let’s deal with the issues.

“This election will not be based on my turn, ethnicity, it will not be based on religion. It will be based on Nigeria agenda to save Nigerians. Nigeria is in coma and it needs a specialist and that is what I’m offering. I am appealing to people to vote to save Nigeria and to save Nigeria is to hire the best.

“I don’t want people to vote for me because I’m from the south east, I don’t want people to vote for me because I’m from south-south or south west or north east, west or north central. I want people to vote for Peter Obi because he is a Nigerian who is competent to pull Nigeria out of the mess.”
