The former Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Peter Obi, has called on the Federal Government to invest in security in 2022.
Obi while speaking with newsmen at the Sam Mbakwe International Airport on Monday said 2021 was a difficult year for Nigerians in all areas.
The former Governor of Anambra State, while speaking on what Nigeria needs to move forward in the New Year, said the security of lives and property should be a priority.
Obi said, “Security of lives and property must be a priority for the country to move forward.
“With security, investments will flow into the country and citizens will also have the confidence to invest in the country.
“Until the people are secured, they will not think of other meaningful things to do.”
He further stated that Nigerians must decide to choose good leaders for political officers as the election is approaching.
He said, “I am talking of leaders with verifiable antecedents and whose character and disposition are beyond reproach.”
Obi added that he watched the Arise TV programme of New Year Day and was struck by two critical things Governor El-Rufai of Kaduna State said about Nigeria, namely: the need to restore security and ensure that competent persons were elected.
He said: “It was truthful of El-Rufai to have admitted that if security was guaranteed, that Kaduna State would have done better than she is presently doing.
“He did also mention that Nigeria is in a critical junction that needs good leadership to salvage her.”
