Nigeria Must Live Within Its Means To Take People Out Of Poverty – Peter Obi
Nigerians must live within their means, according to Peter Obi, a presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In addition, the former Governor of Anambra State urged that the government reduce its cost of governance and engage in human capital development.
On Monday, May 2, 2022, Obi revealed this after holding a consultative meeting with the party’s stakeholders in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
With Nigeria’s tremendous resources, he believes it is wrong to have youngsters without a source of income.
He said, “I am saying the same thing to Nigerians for the general elections. We must live within our means in this country. That is what we need to do urgently to take our people out of poverty.
“So we cannot allow our young people in their young age with the resources of this country to be living where they have no means of livelihood. That is what I want to do.
“That is why I said my basic function is to move the country from consumption to production. We have to change. No more sharing formular.
“I’m going to put the production formula in place. We must feed ourselves. We have enough land all over Nigeria for us to feed ourselves.”
As delegates vote for party candidates to run in the 2023 general elections, the presidential candidate also asked delegates around the country to assess the state of the country now and how to make it a better place.
