Presidential aspirant Peter Obi has reiterated his resolve to bring change to the nation’s ailing economy if he becomes president.
He was responding to questions from Newsmen as to whether he would be willing to work with the opposition if he loses, Obi said, “No, it won’t come to that, I am not looking for a job, I am a very contented person.
The Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi, who was at his polling unit in Agulu, in Anambra State, said he will not work with the opposition if he loses the presidential election but that however, he will stay focused in his resolve to pull Nigerians out of poverty.
Obi said God made him Governor of Anambra State and could also make him the President of Nigeria.
It will be recalled that the former president Olusegun Obasanjo in his new year message had endorsed Mr. Obi’s candidature and urged Nigerians to vote for him.
However, the Labour Party candidate lost to his rival of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu in former President Olusegun Obasanjo‘s polling unit in Ogun state.
On Saturday, after the counting of votes in Mr Obasanjo’s Ward 11, Zone 6, Polling Unit 22 in Abeokuta North Local Government, Mr Tinubu polled 56 votes, while Mr Obi had only nine votes.
Atiku scored seven votes while the candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) scored eight votes.
The 10 voided votes in the polling unit were more than the individual votes of Atiku and Mr Obi.
In a twist to the results in the polling unit, the PDP scored 31 votes, while the APC scored 37 votes in the senatorial election in the unit.
Mr Obi’s Labour Party only scored one vote in the senatorial election in the unit.
Before the former president announced his endorsement, Mr Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had also sought his blessings.
