Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s candidate for president, has urged Nigerians to decide who they would vote for with just 12 days till the presidential election.
In tweets on Monday morning, Obi urged people who were undecided to choose a leader right away so they wouldn’t miss their chance.
The LP candidate said, “Those of us born after independence must now be given the opportunity to redefine the fate of this country. The ‘elders’ have failed us.
“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!
“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 traditional sentiments of my turn. It will be about national Interest.”
The former Anambra State governor, said Nigeria needs leaders who would take full responsibility for protecting the lives and properties of its citizens and redirecting the nation towards national rebirth.
“We have gambled with Nigeria, her destiny and fate of our children. That must stop. We must revisit lessons learned and missed opportunities. What Nigeria needs now is visionary, transformational leader, capable of moving the country in the direction of National Rebirth.
“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,” he said.
