“We are here to announce to the nation, we are here to announce to everyone, men and women, brothers and sisters, that the time has come for us to own our nation, the time has come for us to retrieve Nigeria, to repossess Nigeria,” Kemie said.

Addressing journalists on what makes the candidate of the Labour Party different from his counterparts, Kemie said: “I want to give this illustration, please put our candidate and his opponents on a scale of preference, look at the antecedents of these candidates, my candidate Peter Obi and look at the candidates of other candidates from other political parties.

“Look at their antecedents. If these candidates are banks, for example, you that is asking me this question where are you going to bank your money? So, we are talking about antecedents of integrity in our own candidate; you can see what is going on with other candidates between the controversies surrounding these candidates of our rival parties.

“You can see all the confusion, accusations and counter-accusations. Did you see any of these controversies surrounding our candidate?

“There is nothing like that; they will tell you that Nigerians are tired of corruption. We want to clean up corruption from this country, we are going to clean up nepotism from this country, and we want a man who has a clean record of superintending over the affairs of Nigeria going forward.”
