The Vice Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the just concluded Presidential election Peter Obi, says the nation cannot grow with election rigging.
Obi in a statement on Sunday reveals the process through which people come into office is far more important than what they do thereafter and which forms the basis of their integrity.
He asserted election rigging is the worst form of vices and the root of corruption as it impacts negatively on the political and economic growth of the country.
Obi noted the fraud that characterized this year’s election has greatly undermined the country’s democracy, its future and has significantly damaged the ongoing fight against all vices and tainted the integrity of those responsible.
The VP candidate who governed Anambra state for eight years said through a statement from his media office, that Nigeria cannot quantify the enormity of damage the electoral fraud has done to the psyche of the country.
He also described negative acts like election manipulation as major reason why Nigeria is not growing and has been unable to tackle the existing myriads of problems like unemployment and its attendant vices.
Peter Obi lamented the further effects of election rigging which encourages incompetent person to hang in office and cause more harm to the society.
Obi finally remarked that his main concern and worry is how to create jobs and engage millions of Nigerian youths roaming the streets doing nothing at their prime productive ages.
