Presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has asked Nigerians to hold him accountable if a new Nigeria fails to emerge with him as president.

Mr Obi threw the challenge in Abakaliki on Friday at his campaign rally.

He pledged to reform Nigeria back from consumption to production.

The LP candidate assured that the country would be restored when most qualified candidates with character, trust and competence were elected.

He maintained that the 2023 general elections must be based on character and not on or and tribe.

“We will offer you a new Nigeria and also secure and unite the country.

“Let no one deceive you with religion or tell you it is their turn. Just vote people that understand governance.

“I am not contesting as an Igbo man, a south-easterner, but as a Nigerian who is most qualified and competent to revive the country,’’ Mr Obi said.

He commended the people of Ebonyi for their solidarity and support for the Labour Party.

He urged the electorate to vote for Edward Nkwegu, the gubernatorial candidate of LP in Ebonyi to build a better nation.

In his remarks, National Chairman of the Labour Party, Julius Abure, appreciated the people of Ebonyi for their show of solidarity, support and commitment to the party.

Mr Abure said the LP would produce most intelligent and credible candidates to fight poverty and insecurity in the country.
