Peter Obi reveals his plan to fight corruption and insecurity at Chatham House
The Labour Party’s nominee for president recently discussed his strategy for Nigeria at the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London, England (Chatham House).
On Monday, January 16, 2023, the former governor of Anambra state pledged to revive Nigeria’s already struggling economy, combat crime and corruption, and set the nation on the path to quick economic growth and recovery. He also pledged to make sure that borrowing in the future would only be done for investment.
During the question and answer period, he was asked how he planned to handle the movement by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Obi said, “I condemn all agitators. But in condemning them, you have to look at why all these agitators are all over the place including IPOB, the Yoruba Nation.”
According to him, 63% of Nigerians live in extreme poverty, which is what’s causing the unrest there.
Speaking further on his welfare plans for Nigerians, Obi stated that his party’s solutions and goals will lead to an improved standard of living for the majority of Nigerians.
He pointed out that the transition currently occurring in Africa, where established parties are being overthrown by new and minor parties in elections after elections, was being driven by demography.
My idea for changing policies and building institutions is based on this change.
