Why I go to markets for campaign — Obi

Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, stated that he went to the markets as part of his campaign to emphasize converting Nigeria from a consumption to a production nation, as functional markets continue to be the foundation.

During a one-on-one interview on Channels TV on Monday night, Obi revealed this: “I go to markets for a simple reason.

“You can’t talk about doing that without roots in the functional markets,” I have always maintained, “we need to be able to go back from consumption to production.”
