Peoples Democratic Party presidential aspirant, Peter Obi, has appealed to the party’s delegates to vote wisely during the upcoming national convention.
Mr Obi, a former governor of Anambra, urged them to be guided by their conscience and vote in the interest of the country’s future and that of their children.
He spoke on Monday in Awka, when he met with prospective delegates from Anambra. He said monetary consideration should not be the major factor in choosing the party’s presidential candidate.
He said he decided to end his national consultation in Anambra, after going round the 36 chapters of PDP, plus the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, to demonstrate his commitment to the cause.
Mr Obi said that his experience from the tour had strengthened his resolve to seek an opportunity to steer the ship of the country.
He likened the ship to the “titanic, which was sinking while those on top were making merry,” adding that “For the sake of your children and the future of Nigeria, vote wisely. Don’t hurt the future of your children.
“Do you want to collect money and bequeath a society of hopelessness, kidnapping, banditry and poverty to future generations? Is that the society you want for your children?
“Remember, you can’t transfer your delegate status to your children, this is an opportunity for you to decide,” the presidential hopeful said.
Mr Obi said there was no more money to share and that he would shift the conversation from sharing formula to production formula.
