The Vice Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Peter Obi, has called on traders not to allow Nigeria to collapse. He made this call on Friday while campaigning in selected markets across Anambra State.
Obi, who visited Ose Okwodu, Bright, Main Market, Ochanja and Upper Iweka markets in Onitsha, reminded traders that business needed good policies to thrive. He appealed to them to vote PDP, whose Presidential Candidate is Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, “because of his readiness to formulate and implement good policies that will expand the opportunities of doing business in Nigeria.”
Obi, the immediate past Governor of Anambra State, went on to reel out some of the policies Atiku has already mapped out to boost businesses to include “cut in taxes, development of ports in other parts of the country, improvement of road and transport infrastructure and removal of bottlenecks that hinder movement of goods from one part of the country to another.”
He assured the traders that a vote for Atiku is a vote for the salvation of Nigeria. “A vote for PDP is a vote to put Nigeria on the track of development,” Obi said.
