Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election, Mr. Peter Obi has expressed confidence over his party’s victory at the tribunal.

Obi spoke at a victory thanksgiving service in Atani, Anambra state in honour of Sen. Princess Stella Odua; Hon. Chukwuka Onyema and winners of Anambra state House of Assembly, Hon. Noble Igwe and Hon. Somto Udeze, Ogbaru 1 and Ogbaru 11 constituencies, respectively.

Obi reassured that all hope was not lost, insisting that his party would not give up as the court case was still in progress.

He, however, asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to provide the server used for the election.

“INEC must provide the server they used for the election because they know they used the server for the election and must provide it,” he maintained.

Attributing the victories recorded by his party in the elections to God, Obi stressed that it would have been impossible for PDP to achieve anything in the election.

He said, “The election has come and gone and now is the reality. We have to thank God Almighty for, without Him, we would not have succeeded in the election.

“Whenever we have the opportunity we should show gratitude to God. Thanksgiving is important and we are here to show our appreciation to God for what he did for us.

“We also show our appreciation to all the people who helped made it possible for us to succeed, we must do something that they will appreciate.”

Former governor of Anambra state, charged the newly elected lawmakers to first consider the interest of the masses and use public money for the public good.

H added, “You are nearer to the people. There is no road in Ogbaru and so many areas needs to be revived again. There is a lot of work to be done in the constituency.

“So many people are hungry, so many things are happening to Nigeria. Let those who are in power today please use public money for public good.

“Our children are not working because there is no job while some are working and suffering.”

On her part, Senator representing Anambra North at the National Assembly, Stella Odua, pledged her continued commitment to empowering the youths.

She said, “The essence of being in the senate is to make laws that will brighten and better the lives of the people as well as laws that will breed good governance.

“Youth empowerment is ensuring human capital development. Nothing else can work except people are empowered.

“To develop the people we must empower them to empower others.”

Atiku Raises Loud Alarm On Prevalence Of Poverty In Nigeria

<

div>

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the February 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar, on Saturday said the recent report by the United Nations Development Programme, published on July 11, which said that over 98 million Nigerians were living in multi-dimensional poverty, was frightening.

He said the report indicated that poverty had become the fastest growing venture in Nigeria over the last four years.

The former Vice President, in a statement by his media adviser, Paul Ibe, said there was an urgent and compelling need for institutions of the Nigerian state to understand that it was an appalling dereliction of duty to stand idly by and allow misery multiply in the populace.

According to him, this was no longer a grassroots problem.

“The failure of our economy over the last four years affects everyone from top to bottom. Four years ago, Aliko Dangote, Nigeria’s richest man, was worth $25bn. However, his net worth in 2019 is less than half that. He joined thousands of industrialists whose wealth and their ability to produce, had eroded in recent years, and continue to do so.
“With the National Bureau of Statistics reporting a net job loss of over six million since 2015, we see that if industrialists have their wealth eroding, it affects their ability to create opportunities, which means that the trickle-down effect gradually dries.”
Atiku stated that the greatest national security threat Nigeria faced in 2019 was not Boko Haram/ISWAP or bandits but the ‘creation of the largest wave of poverty in human history in the country.’
He warned that the world was noticing, hence Foreign Direct Investment was shifting from Nigeria to Ghana, making Ghana the top recipient of FDI in West Africa in the last year.

He said, “And in the wake of this report by the UNDP, we are greeted with nonchalance by those who led us into this crisis. It is as though they think that as long as they and their families are not amongst those 98 million extremely poor Nigerians, things can carry on as before.

“But that cannot be allowed to be the case. Those who have the ability, including the Council of State, all former leaders, elder-statesmen, and especially the other arms of government, must begin to collaborate for solutions before the number increases from 98 million to all 198 million Nigerians.

“We must remember that we are stakeholders in the Nigerian project; stakeholders who must speak up for those 98 million people who are losing their voices to poverty.”
