I ‘ll Lift 130m Nigerians Out Of Poverty – Peter Obi


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) has assured that he will lift 130 million people out of poverty if he is voted into office come the 2023 general election.

Obi stated this after attending the NKST Synod in Mkar, Gboko Local Government Area (LGA) of Benue State on Friday.

The comment of the Anambra State governor was in reaction to recent figures by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) saying that 63 per cent of the Nigerian population lives below the poverty line.

Obi said: “I came on the invitation of the Synod to talk to them about the next election, which I say is a crucial election.



“Like I said, the release shows that Nigeria is about 216 million in population, and it is said that 130 million people are in poverty, that alone should be of concern to us, and that is my major concern too.

“How do we get these people out of poverty? This to me is crucial, and that is why I am here to help them make the right choice.

“They have to think of their children being in school, think about what they can give to the nation, building a nation is the job of government and all Federal agencies within the nation.”
