The Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Peter Obi, says Nigeria has been shut down politically and economically for more than three years.

Peter Obi said this at an interactive session with the Edo stakeholders and members of the Peoples Democratic Party in Benin on Thursday.

Obi, however, assured Nigerians that the country’s economic misfortunes will be reversed to rapid economic growth if the party is voted in.

According to him, “More than 40 per cent of young Nigerians are unemployed, leading to Nigeria being referred to as one of the poorest countries in the world.

“Nigeria has been shut down economically, politically and socially for more than three years.

“This has resulted in hunger, insecurity, and economic instability especially in the North Eastern part of the country.”

According to him, the Atiku/Obi-led government if elected in February will bring back foreign investors to develop the economy of the country.

“Those who have closed their businesses for fear of kidnapping, banditry, insurgency as a result of government inability to provide security for the citizenry, will be encouraged to return.

“We are going to treat everybody equal especially the physically challenged in the area of empowerment.
