Labour Party flagbearer, Peter Obi has explained what he plans to do to take the country out of its current economy state.

Obi while speaking in an interview with Zain Asher on CNN on Friday, said the first thing he plans to do is to put security in place.

Reactions have trailed the interview of the Labour Party’s Presidential Candidate, Mr Peter Obi, held Friday night on the Cable News Network. Nigerians on social media have had a lot to say about the interview.

The interview which was scheduled to hold earlier in September was moved twice and speculations about whether it would ever hold again filled the social media space. It was however, announced on the CNN’s Zain Asher’s Twitter handle that the interview would hold at 5pm on Friday.

Since the interview aired, the Nigerian social media space has been blowing up with so many reactions. From Twitter, @promyxx1 said, “This is not the kind of politics Atiku and Tinubu are used too…Peter Obi ‘don dey carry them go where dem no know.’ ”

@AdaAwgbu_ said, “Peter Obi in the last three months, has given Nigeria more public image boost than all our Ministers of Information and Foreign Affairs put together have done in the last ten years.”

In the course of the interview, Asher, who described him as the most popular candidate among the young people asked, ”Nigerians are used to being disappointed by their leaders, can all the problems of Nigeria which are corruption, oil theft, insecurity, physical.. be solved by one person?

Reacting to the question, Obi said, “If we have a leader that is competent, have the capacity, and commitment to deal with it, no one will solve it overnight. But there will be a clear, visible, measurable attempts to dealing with it. And they are things that are solveable. There are things they can be dealt decisively.”

The former Anambra state governor noted that security is impacting negatively on the economy of the country and needs to be dealt with decisively if the country wants to rise above poverty.

He said, “One is that you have to deal decisively with security. It is impacting negatively on your economy today. Because you have to get your farmers to go back to the farm, and start ensuring that the vast land of the North is invested and cultivated on. You have to start pulling people out of poverty as quickly as possible.”
