Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party has urged Nigeria's youth to vote out political parties that have misled and kept them in poverty.

The former Anambra governor made the comment at his presidential rally at the Kano Pillars Stadium.

Obi in his speech promised to return Kano back to its old glory and a bubbling city

“We want to bring Kano back to what Kano used to be. That is what we want to do, and we can only do it by pulling you out of poverty. We are not in this business to waste anybody’s time. They have deceived you; they promised you and delivered nothing.

“We are not like that, we want you to take what we are saying, and you will see it happen. This election this year, let them not deceive you. They will tell you we are from the North; this election will not be based on ethnicity or tribe,” Obi said.

Obi is running against Atiku Abubakar, Bola Tinubu, Rabiu Kwankwaso, among other candidates.
