Labour Party vice presidential candidate, Senator Datti Baba-Ahmed, has urged electorates in the country not to allow scarcity of new naira notes to deter them from voting on February 25 in the presidential election.
Baba-Ahmed, who made the appeal during a news conference on Friday in Abuja, asked Nigerians to vote despite all obstacles to break the cycle of difficulties and suffering in the nation.
He urged Nigerians to hold him and his presidential candidate Peter Obi accountable if they are unable to transform the country’s economy from one of consumption to one of production.
Datti’s words: “Hold us responsible, if we fail to cut waste in government or drastically fight corruption which has permeated every segment and sector of our national life.
“We make these promises because of what we are offering Nigerians, leadership with character, competence, knowledge and compassion.
“Next Saturday, Nigerians will be expected to make the most important decision in the history of the country, a decision that will determine and shape the future of Nigeria.
“The past eight years have witnessed the most lamentable failures in terms of promises made for change.
“Even if you are angry with the country and the leadership because of the sufferings you are going through, take your anger to the polls and vote out those who have impoverished you through bad governance.”
