Peter Obi: I Can Govern Nigeria Without LP Having Majority In National Assembly by nairavsdollars(f): 8:17pm On Aug 12
By Temidayo Akinsuyi

Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi on Friday said he can govern Nigeria conveniently even without his party having majority members in the National Assembly in 2023.

Obi who said this in an exclusive interview on News Central TV which was monitored by Daily Independent said he had been in that situation before when he was governor of Anambra without his party, All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) having a single member in the House of Assembly.

According to him, if the national assembly sees that he is doing the right thing as president, they will join him.

“I was governor of Anambra state without one House member from my party. 30 members were from another party. Now Labour party even have one, this one I didn’t get. No senator, no local government chairman. Everybody was in another party”.

Also speaking on how he wants to fight corruption, Obi said he will lead by example and ensure that all those who come in contact with him also do the same.

“Fighting corruption is easy. If you the principal person is not stealing, your wife and children are not stealing, those around you are not stealing, then you have reduced corruption by 70 per cent”.

As for me, i can't start answering shameful questions from my kids.
E.g; Daddy why did you vote for a president that can't speak or grant live interviews??
Or daddy why does our president pee on himself??
Daddy is our president older than grandpa??
Daddy is our president sick cause he looks sick??
How many of these questions can i even cover-up without looking stupid.
As a father i'm not ready to begin talk long story o.
We need someone who knows what he's doing and no emilokan.
Nigeria no be turn by turn.
Let's vote for competence.
Let's vote for Peter Obi.

Good Leadership starts with integrity & trust.

Aspirants that massively bribed & bought the conscience of delegates have failed the integrity test. cool

Indeed, PO represents the only genuine hope of Nigeria making a revolutionary u-turn from Business As Usual & The Status Quo.

Let's do away with evil Brooms & Umbrellas and vote for Human Beings this time around...

I can see people saying "this man doesn't understand governance". The typical Nigerian is used to bad governance and suffering, they see it as a norm. That's why whenever they see attempt at good governance, they deem it impossible and unrealistic.

This goes to show Obi is not politically astute and a misfit to head a politically complex Nigeria. Let's put things in perspective.

Buhari could not get much done in first term even with APC majority in NASS. Why? Because the leadership of NASS were not on his side.

What makes Obi think a president can work with success in Nigeria when the legislative is opposed to him? Obi thinks of politics at the understanding level of a juvenile.

Obi was impeached in Anambra because his legislature opposed him.

If he wins he wants to preside in the midst pf opposition legislature. Has he lost his mind? grin

Peter Obi is a joker

I hope you know this is a 50-seater economy-class commercial airplane owned by Airpeace (the plane is named after Airpeace owner grandmother)?

You need to go to school. Tribalism and hatred has tied down the life of a young boy like you

Who owns AirPeace, no be Iboman Igboman?
No be Iboname Igboman is printed on that plane?

How many plane do you see with personal name painted on it?

No be loudness be dat?
No be ibo Igbo like noise?
Illiteracy has finished your life. Any day you will finally quit hatred and bigotry and chase money to afford a plane ticket, you'd be surprised that almost every commercial plane is named after people and often inscribed on them.

For now keep allowing tribalism to be eating what's left of your empty brain. wink
