The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, says he will prioritise tackling insecurity if he becomes Nigeria’s president in 2023.
Newsbreak.ng reports that Obi said this on Tuesday night while reacting to the killing of a women leader of the Labour Party. According to him, ‘the war against insecurity will be my first task in office’.
“I am shocked by the mindless killing of Mrs. Victoria Chintex, the Labour Party’s women leader in Kaura, Kaduna State, by yet-to-be-identified gunmen,” Obi, a former governor Anambra State, said via Twitter.
“Her death is a huge loss to her immediate and extended family, and to our Labour Party. She lives on in our hearts.
“Her killing, and the loss of many innocent lives across the nation to gunmen and terrorists, are the reason why I must prioritize the war against insecurity as my first task in office. We must not allow the waste of human lives in Nigeria under any guise.
“May the soul of Late Mrs. Victoria Chintex rest in perfect peace. My sincere condolence to her family.”
