Labour Party (LP) Presiden­tial Candidate, Peter Obi, has assured that he will use his negotiation skills as a trader to navigate the country out of her current problems.
The LP candidate said that everything about “gov­ernance is trading,” noting that all “the negotiation and all the bilateral talks with and between countries, agen­cies, contractors or workers are trading and governance requires a good trader who can negotiate well.”
He also disclosed that Nigeria currently requires a leader who can negotiate it out of the myriad of prob­lems it faces.
He stressed that “when I say I will negotiate with agitators, it’s from my background that you must accommodate everybody into your shop whether he is buying or not and deci­pher who is a customer and a passerby.”
Obi who was speaking to youths recalled that he was able to build the branch of Savannah Bank in Nsukka while he was a student at the University of Nigeria, Nsuk­ka (UNN).
“Even in my passport it’s shown that I am a trader, but some said I should be a banker because I was the chairman of a bank but I be­came a banker by accident. My love is in trading because in it you are equipped to face any challenges including governance”, he said.
