The buck will stop at my desk if elected president, no blame game – Peter Obi

Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) says the buck will stop at his desk, if elected president, as he will not blame but discharge his duties effectively.

Mr Obi stated this Monday night in a series of tweets highlighting what his administration will do to address the worsening state of the country’s security, power and the economy.

The former Anambra governor, popular among the youths who identify themselves as OBIdients, is largely seen as the third force to oust the two major parties in the country – the All Progressive Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“As a President elected by all Nigerians, the buck will stop at my desk, I will be fully responsible for governance and national security decisions and actions,” Mr Obi tweeted.

“Total reform of the entire security architecture that will include level policing – Federal, State and Community, properly armed, equipped and technologically driven security system.

“My administration will aggressively support the private sector to invest in the power value chain through a multifaceted approach particularly the transmission infrastructure.

“I will vigorously pursue the liberalization of the transmission infrastructure and adequately support the existing investors through proper alignment of specific gas supply for power generation, transmission and distribution.

“We will reduce the subsidy cost by over 50 %. We will support local refining for domestic use and priced strictly in Naira, Once we tackle insecurity and farmers returns to farms, our food production will go up and inflation will go down through the reduced food prices.

“With the removal of subsidy, effectively reduce corruption to minimal level, reduced bloated cost of governance and above all, support and incentivize export to stabilize the currency exchange rate,” he added.
