Peter Obi, a presidential candidate in Nigeria, holds a campaign rally.

Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, addressed a campaign rally in Ibadan, south west Nigeria, on Wednesday (Nov 23).

The electoral meeting drew large audiences in the Oyo state capital.

Obi promised to bring about constructive change ahead of the February 2023 election.

“Let me assure you, the government we intend to form will be building a new Nigeria, it will be beginning a Nigeria where Nigerians will be proud to say we are Nigerians because we will secure and unite Nigeria.”

There was a voter base of 84,004,084 for the 2019 election and the electoral commission hoped to add at least 20 million new voters.

Insecurity, the economy and the fight against corruption will be key election factors.

“Both of us we will fight corruption, corruption is killing the future of youth of Nigeria because people are stealing money that could be used to develop Nigeria. I and Baba-Ahamed go and check our history we are wealth creators,” Obi told the cheering crowds.

Seventeen other candidates are running for the top job, including Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress party and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party.
