A presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has charged Lagos delegates to put the picture of their children before them as they vote in the next coming party’s primaries.

Obi made the charge while meeting with Lagos PDP delegates in Ikeja on Wednesday.

The former governor said Nigeria is going through a big difficulty, saying that every day is bad news about the country.

“There is high unemployment in the country. Because of mismanaging of the country’s resources.

We now have over a 100million Nigerians in poverty. There is hyper-inflation. We have almost a 100million children out of school. What we have seen is the cumulative effects of Leadership failure over the years”, said Obi.

Obi said the country spends over 90% of its revenue on feeding alone, adding that Nigeria is a sharing nation and that all that people want is sharing not producing.

The presidential aspirant said what the nation borrowed had finished and now borrowing money to share.

“Let’s move Nigeria from consumption to creative production. It is not about you and me but the future of our children. Our borrowing must be for investment, not consumption.

I am not saying borrowing is wrong but borrowing for consumption is what I don’t support. We must create jobs, people must have a means of livelihood. The more we put people into poverty the more we increase criminality and violence.

PDP would be conducting its presidential primaries on May 28 and 29 at Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.

Some of the aspirants that would participate in the primaries are, former president Abubakar Atiku, governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, governor of Sokoto state, Rt (Hon)  Aminu Tambuwal, governor of Bauchi, Sen. Bala Mohammed,  former Senate president, Sen. Bukola Saraki, Mr Dele Momodu, former banker Mohammed Hayatudeen, and others.
