Labour Party (LP) Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi, has assured that he will use his negotiation skills as a trader to navigate the country out of her current problems.
The LP candidate said that everything about ‘governance is trading,’ pointed out that all ‘the negotiation and all the bilateral talks with and between countries, agencies, contractors or workers are trading and governance requires a good trader who can negotiate well.’
He also disclosed that Nigeria currently requires a leader who can negotiate it out of the myriad of problems it faces.
He stressed that ‘when I say I will negotiate with agitators, it’s from my background that you must accommodate everybody into your shop whether he is buying or not and decipher who is a customer and a passerby.’
Obi who was speaking to youths recalled that he was able to build the branch of Savannah Bank in Nsukka while he was a student at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN).
‘Even in my passport it’s shown that I am a trader, but some said I should be a banker because I was the chairman of a bank but I became a banker by accident. My love is in trading because in it you are equipped to face any challenges including governance’, he said.
Obi had earlier opened up on how his campaign team was attacked in Katsina State during his campaign in the state.
The Eastern Updates reports that Obi’s team which has been on a state-to-state tour touched down in Katsina on Monday.
While campaigning in Kastina, he wooed voters and promised to tackle insecurity if elected.
In a statement issued on his behalf, Diran Onifade, Head of Media, Obi/Datti Presidential Campaign Council, said, that the attack on Obi and his campaign team is condemnable.
