Nigeria not a productive nation – Obi


The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi has said he knows the major problem of the country.

Obi stated this in Rivers State on Thursday while inaugurating the Nkpolu-Oroworokwo Flyover, constructed by Governor Nyesom Wike.

Obi said the problem of Nigeria is the lack of productivity.

He stated that after his survey of the country, he knows what would benefit every region, assuring of his commitment to a better Nigeria.

According to him: “I know the problem of the country. Nigeria is not a productive state.

“I have said it again and again that I know what to do to benefit every part of the country. I told them in the North when we held our campaign that we will develop their vast lands. They have the land so we will develop it.

“The South-West will be our financial hub and the East will be our manufacturing base. We will revive the seaport in Rivers so that we can be exporting from there.”

Obi, who was cheered by a large crowd, urged the people of Rivers to take him as one of them, pledging support for the people of the state.
