In what can be termed a categorical statement, Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has insisted that he would do everything to harness the potentials in northern Nigeria.
He disclosed this in an interview published by Daily Trust.
According to him, the northern part of the country has vast land for farming, noting that his administration if elected, will invest in agriculture.
“We have a huge land in the north that if properly invested and cultivated, will change Nigeria. The more I pull people out of poverty, the more I reduce agitation, the more I reduce criminality.
“I am going to meet people in the north, I am going to meet people everywhere and say come, let’s be a family. I want Nigerians to be proud that they are Nigerians. What we have now is we have a country called Nigeria but we don’t have Nigerians. I want to bring back Nigerians.”
