The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 general election, Mr Peter Obi, has said that he is not desperate to be Nigeria’s President.

The former Anambra governor said his greatest desire is to see Nigeria work again.

Obi spoke while reacting to his award as the ‘Leadership Politician of the Year 2023’.

According to the LP presidential candidate, it was a shame for Ukraine, a war-torn country, to donate grains to Nigeria when Niger State alone can feed the whole of Africa.

“I am not desperate to be president, I am desperate to make Nigeria work,” Obi stated, while adding that young Nigerians should be productively engaged in order to eliminate poverty and crime.

“We have no reasons to be poor. Poverty should never be part of our lives especially in the North,” Obi said, adding that with over 7,442,00 square meters of land, Nigeria can feed Africa.

“Ukraine has no reason to give us grain. Niger State can feed Nigeria, Africa with over 73, 000 square meters of land.

“The two biggest states in the North-East, Borno with over 70,000 square metres of land and Taraba, are four times the size of Belgium that is exporting food. There is so much we can do in the country if we have the right leadership.

“The more you remove people out of poverty, the more you have less criminals,” Obi pointed out
