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.
