Share this article

Labour Party presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections, Peter Obi on Wednesday declared that he’s not desperate to be Nigeria’s president in 2027.

Obi said he’s only interested in lifting the poor and less privileged Nigerians out of difficult situation.

The former Anambra State governor, who addressed newsmen in Abuja, lamented that some people shy away from discussing pressing issues confronting Nigeria.

He said, “We live in a system where public office holders and politicians are only seen during elections. I can tell you that it is an everyday job. I have said it several times that I am not desperate to become the president of Nigeria. But I am desperate to see the poor and less privileged Nigerians being pulled out of their difficult situation daily.

“That is what I am desperate to see. And all of us can do it as well. You can’t even be happy or fulfilled when several million (Nigerians) don’t know where the next meal will come from.”
