If I become president I'll create a lot of jobs for our people - Peter Obi

The Punch newspaper reports that Obi made the comment in Umuahia, the Abia state capital, on Saturday, January 23 during a non-denominational prayer organized by the Catholic Diocese of Umuahia to pray for him.

He pointed out that it was unacceptable and unfortunate that millions of Nigerians are not sure where their next meal would come from, even though the country was blessed with an enormous amount of natural resources.

“Nigeria is a country with 9,23000 square kilometres of land, and a population of 200 million people. God blessed us with oil and other resources. We have over 100 million people living in poverty.

“But to show that we are not a producing country, last year, our total export including oil was less than 30 billion dollars, that is why we can’t find dollars today.

“I told the governor of the Abia state today that if I become president, I can assure you that in two years our exports will improve because what we need is government support for our people to produce and export to make a living. That will create a lot of jobs for our people.”
