He promised to revolutionise governance and run an all inclusive regime carrying women ,youths and persons with disabilities along.

“Nigeria in the past 20 years have produced insecurity; Nigeria in the past 20 years have produced poverty and unemployment.

“We are offering you security and prosperity. We are going to fight insecurity.

“We will start with agrarian revolution, which will reduce the price of food, inflation will come down ,then we will pish it to industry ,as they are manufacturing, they will employ labour.

“From there they will do export, exchange will stabilise, we have finished running everything, we are only awaiting execution, give us power and you will see that a new Nigeria is possible,” he said.

Obi said that food would be in surplus and no Nigerians would have no reason to be hungry again.

:We will empower women and youths. We will unite Nigeria and in the next five years, you will be proud to be a Nigerian.”

Baba-Ahmed said that the name Peter Obi stood for hope adding that for the eight years that he was the Anambra governor he never borrowed money to execute projects, saying that he rather left enough money in government coffers.

“Anybody who tells you the security situation in the country has improved does not mean well for Nigeria.

“Peter Obi will unite Nigeria. We are coming to do things differently. Peter Obi is going to work for Nigeria.

“Vote for us come Feb.25 for a better Nigeria.”
