2023: Peter Obi Explains Why APC, PDP Should Be Kicked Out  

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party (LP), has criticized the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the lack of electricity in the country.  

In an interview that aired on Central TV over the weekend, it was said that Nigerians should reflect on their own inability to hold the APC and PDP accountable for keeping their campaign pledges. 

The former governor of Anambra State believes it is shameful that despite having been in power for a combined total of 24 years, the two major political parties were unable to increase the nation’s power generation from 4,000 to 5,000 megawatts.  

He said: “The simple thing for Nigerians to ask themselves is, we have been in this business for 24 years, are we on the right road? If you have been in a situation for 24 years, people have been promising and not delivering.

“Look at the two parties, have they delivered what they promised? In 24 years, Nigeria could not increase its power generation from 4,000 to 5,000 or 6,000. Ask yourself the question, are we going to continue with this? So, are you going to continue on the wrong road or turn and say ‘listen, we have to do the right thing? 

“Every section of Nigeria wants to have uninterrupted electricity, don’t they? Nigerians wants to see good roads. Every part of Nigeria wants to see the prices of food come down. Is there anywhere you buy bread cheaper? If you do the right thing, people will follow you.” 

Obi noted that his track record as Anambra state governor for eight years qualifies him to lead Nigeria out of the current situation which the two parties have plunged it into due to bad governance. 

The LP flag bearer also promised to engage everyone collectively, sit and dialogue with every group.
