Labor presidential candidate Peter Obi has urged his supporters to collect money given to them by opposition political parties while continuing to vote for him.
The Labor candidate made the call Thursday at the Labor Party presidential rally in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.
According to Obi, the money belonged to Nigeria but was “stolen” by those in the government.
He said, “Let me tell you, the money they give you is your money, collect it, eat it and vote for me.
The money I will give you is that you will be employed, you will have health care, you will be educated, I will make society work and you will be rich. I want to build a society where everyone is safe and where no child can become the president of this country.”
Obi also expressed his intention to unite Nigeria and move it from consumption to production.
He urged Nigerians to hold him accountable while promising to revive the country, in the same way he had “resurrected dead companies” in the past.
