President Tinubu Has Kept All His Campaign Promises Including Continuing From Where Buhari Stopped-Peter Obi

Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, in the 2023 general elections, Peter Obi, has insisted that President Tinubu has kept his campaign promises to Nigerians.~ We should be celebrating STATE CAPTURE and not Democracy.

Obi made this statement during a Democratic Day chat on Arise TV.

Here are some of the highlights of what he said during the interview:

In those days of electioneering, Tinubu had promised to build a Nigeria, especially for the youth, where sufficient jobs with decent wages create a better life.

According to Tinubu, Nigeria would manufacture, create, and invent more of the goods and services it requires, adding that the country shall be known as a nation of creators, not just of consumers.

He added that Nigeria would export more and import less, thereby strengthening both the naira and citizen’s way of life.

But in all, Tinubu had maintained that, “I will continue from where Buhari stopped.”

And Peter Obi, who contested against Tinubu in the election and came third, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, said that among all his promises, the President has kept the part he vowed to walk in the footsteps of his predecessor.
