Our reporter| Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), on Monday, urged undecided voters to support him in the forthcoming presidential election scheduled to hold on February 25.
Obi in a post on his official Twitter handle, said Nigeria needs a leader who is capable of moving the country toward the direction of national rebirth.
“Good Morning Nigeria. We are down the stretch with 12 Days to go. I have a message for Nigerians, especially those that are sitting on the fence; It is DECISION TIME!,” he writes.
“Every nation has significant moments in their history –when a situation arises, which requires that nation to take specific steps that would mark her turning point. Nigeria is at that historical junction. How we have done as a nation is no longer in debate.
“We have done poorly due to bad leadership. We must now seize this moment. We must save Nigeria now or never. Twelve days from now we will be called upon to make very hard choices. It won’t be about tribe or religion; it won’t be about the traditional sentiments of my turn.
“It will be about National Interest. We have gambled with Nigeria, her destiny, and the fate of our children. That must stop. We must revisit lessons learned and missed opportunities. What Nigeria needs now is a visionary, transformational leader, capable of moving the country in the direction of National Rebirth.
“For long we trusted the elders. Those of us born after independence must now be given the opportunity to reshape the destiny of this nation. What kind of a leader does Nigeria need at this time? We need leaders who will take full responsibility to protect Nigerian lives, property, and prosperity. That is what Datti and I represent.
“Banditry, kidnapping, farmer-herder clashes, millions of children on our streets, hunger, unemployment, and poverty are not our portion. It can’t be. This moment calls for a new kind of leader. We have set out our vision and plan. We are asking Nigerians to give us the mandate to deliver on them.
“We stand at a critical moment in our history as a nation. We must not waste this moment. We must seize the moment.”
The former Anambra state governor is one of the three leading candidates in the presidential election and has consistently lead in most of the opinion polls conducted so far.
