The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has reiterated his commitment to restructuring the country if elected as president.

SPY NIGERIA reports that the former Governor of Anambra State made this known in a statement via Twitter, stating there is a need to reset and reboot the country in all ramifications of leadership and governance.

According to Peter Obi, he is not contesting for himself but for millions of youth who have lost hope in the country and women who are afraid of the future of their children.

The LP flagbearer added that he alongside his running mate Yusef Datti is ready to deliver a new Nigeria to citizens.

He wrote: Fellow Nigerians, we are down to Crunch Time – 7 Days to the Main Day. Our strength is in our diversity. We need to reset and reboot Nigeria in all ramifications –leadership and governance, security of life and properties, economic and political freedom.

We must celebrate our Shared Values and Responsibilities. In this march to freedom, I have not come out for myself! I have come out for the millions of youths that are losing hope in our beloved country! Datti and I, wish to deliver a new Nigeria that is POssible!

I have come out for the millions of women who are afraid of tomorrow and what it holds for them and their children! I have come out for the poor who are asking whether it’s a sin to be a Nigerian! For them, I have come! For them, Datti has come!

Our message has been consistent. Nigeria is not bereft of the required human capital necessary for good leadership. Nigeria is also not bereft of good governance ideas and plans.

However, our country is bedeviled by the impunity of those few who have perfected the dubious act of State Capture. These national interest issues need to be addressed urgently. The process will start in earnest on 25th February.


Security will be a national imperative; WE will tweak the national security architecture, via holistic reform of the security sector and governance. We will restructure, reequip and reorient the Nigerian Police.
