ADC governorship candidate tips Peter Obi as only Presidential candidate to fix Nigeria’s economy

..Urges Nigerians to vote for him

By Sixtus Uket (Calabar)

Ahead of Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly elections in Nigeria, the governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), in Cross River State, Mr. Effiong Nyong, has tipped the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Mr. Peter Obi and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed, as the only credible ones with the capacity to solve the country’s socio-economic problems.
Mr. Nyong made the remarks while answering questions from journalists at the end of the LP grand finale of the one million-man rally for Obi/Datti held Wednesday in Calabar, the State capital.
The ADC Gubernatorial Candidate stated that, “the time has come when people should no longer sit on the fence when it comes to issues of who to govern Nigeria.”
He further urged Nigerians with love for the revival of the nation to join hands with Obi/Datti to bail the country out of its present predicament.
“Enough of this mess, to allow same people who wrecked Nigeria’s economy to return back to power again?
“I think Nigerians are afraid of saying vote for Obi/Datti, instead they say vote wisely; the wisdom they are talking about lies in the fact that LP has a more credible presidential candidate.
“The name Peter Obi is today seen as a metaphor for wisdom, but what we are saying is that Nigerians should be bold to say it the way it is, vote Obi,” he stated.
On why the leadership of African Democratic Congress (ADC) decided to collapse the party’s structure into the LP, Nyong charged Nigerians not to allow same people who he described as the ones that destroyed Nigeria’s economy and unleashed poverty and hard times on the people to return back to power.
“The hardship faced by the nation shows that this set of people have lost ideas of how to pilot the nation’s affairs.
“They have exhausted the ideas that they have and they are bringing nothing to the table. And they are the same people asking people to vote them because there is hope,” Mr. Nyong said.
He also explained that the rally was the final push in Cross River to reawaken the spirit of the Obi/Datti movement in the state before the presidential election which is scheduled for Saturday, February 25.
