Obi visits Zaria, promises to provide jobs for jobless Kaduna people

Peter Obi and Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed

Peter Obi, the presidential flag bearer on the platform of the Labour Party, has pledged to mitigate the unemployment rate among youths by providing skilful labour if elected president.

Mr Obi stated this when he led his running mate Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed on a courtesy visit to the Emir of Zazzau, Ahmed Bamalli, in Zaria on Monday.

The presidential hopeful also pledged to harness the huge potential of the North’s fertile land through better agricultural policies, assuring Nigerians that one of his priorities would be providing all needed support to revive agricultural potentials for self-employment.

Mr Obi also pledged to revive industrial outfits that had collapsed in Kaduna and Kano as the commercial nerve centres of the North.

He frowned upon divisive politics by politicians, stressing that the time had come when Nigerians would no longer be deceived to vote along ethnic, sectional and religious lines.

Mr Baba-Ahmed said the visit was a homecoming and urged the electorate to massively vote for the party to shift Nigeria from a consumption to a productive nation.

Ibrahim-Sidi Bamalli, the Labour Party senatorial candidate, denied reports attributed to a legislative candidate in Kano that candidates contesting the National Assembly in the North-West zone had dumped the party.
