PDP’s Vice Presidential candidate, Peter Obi who sat for an interview on ARISE News Television, reacted to a statement credited to Governor Nasir El-Rufai on no single thinking brain left in the PDP.
Reacting to the statement, Peter Obi who disclosed that the country is collapsing, said;
“Well, all the good brains are in APC, but the country is not working. The good brains are in APC, yet the country is collapsing. That’s all I can say. When APC came, this country was growing at six per cent, since they came, look at where we are! Everything has headed south, not one item is positive.”
On the face-off between the Labour congress and the Presidency, Peter Obi stated that there is need to sit down with labour, look at the income of the nation and the various states and determine the appropriate figure.
“Personally, I do not believe that somebody from Lagos should pay same thing with somebody from Ebonyi State. If you go all over the globe, there is no place where two states pay the same salary even America,” he said.
The former Governor of Anambra State also reacted to controversy surrounding the search of Atiku Abubakar, his plane and staff. According to Peter Obi, the Presidency is turning politics into a childish affair and what the PDP was concerned with now is to bring the country back to where it used to be.
The Presidential candidate further added that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, would prioritize security, national unity, education and job creation, if elected president of Nigeria. According to him, the country is broken and another four years of the All Progressives Congress (APC) should be beyond contemplation of any right thinking Nigerian.
