Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Mr Peter Obi, on Saturday in Kafanchan, Kaduna State, promised to stamp out corruption if elected as president.
Obi made the pledge at a meeting with traditional rulers in Kagoro, Kaura Local Government Area in the south of Kaduna State.
“With your support, I will fight corruption and block all areas of revenue leakages.
“We will stop the wastages in government and start saving to rebuild our country.
Obi restated his resolve to fight poverty as a way of reducing crimes.
“We must start pulling our people out of poverty because the more you reduce poverty the more you reduce crime,’’ he said.
The presidential candidate said he would work with traditional rulers to address security challenges facing Nigeria.
In his remarks, the Chief of Kagoro, Ufuwai Bonet, appreciated Obi for identifying with the people of Southern Kaduna.
