DAILY FILE – Peter Obi, running mate of Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), claimed that Nigeria now moved from number seven to number three insecure country in the world after Afghanistan and Iraq.
Obi said the country will collapse if President Muhammadu Buhari is reelected.
PUNCH quoted Obi as saying this on Tuesday while speaking with journalists on a roadshow in Akwa, Anambra state.
The vice-presidential candidate reportedly said the election is about “the future of our children.”
He said the government of All Progressives Congress (APC) does not have the capacity to govern the country.
“We are on a roadshow trying to send our message to Nigerians. We are telling them that the election is about the future of our children,” Obi said.
“We are encouraged by our endorsement everywhere, not only in the south-east because the people have seen the reality of the moment.
“They have seen that the present government doesn’t have the capacity to govern Nigeria.
“They have seen that this country will collapse under Buhari if allowed to continue. We have a country that is collapsing. So, everybody should be part of this endorsement.”
According to him, Nigeria is the third most insecure country in the world.
“We have a situation where we record growing insecurity daily. We’ve now moved from number seven to number three insecure country in the world after Afghanistan and Iraq,” he said.
“This should worry everybody.”
