With 45 days to the presidential election, the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has said the presidency is not “turn by turn.”

Referring to his counterpart of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu’s recent remark, Obi said it’s the turn of Nigerians and the Southeast to be president.

He spoke yesterday during his campaign rally in Delta State.

Obi said if the presidency was to be “turn by turn,” it would be his “turn.”

According to Obi: “Somebody said it is his turn to be president, I want to tell you that the president is not turn by turn. If it is turn by turn, it is supposed to be my turn, but we are not using turn by turn. It is the turn of Nigerians to be president especially those full of energy.”

The former Anambra State Governor said Nigerians should hold him responsible if he fails in security and economy if elected president.

“Hold me responsible if we failed you in the area of security, economy. We will make the country work again,” he said.

He also promised to ensure that strikes in the education sector ends if elected president.
