Peter Obi Hails Tinubu On Campaign Promise But…



Tinubu Obi boreholes

2023 presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi has in a rare act of commendation praised President Bola Tinubu over his proposal to construct 400 boreholes across the country in the memory of his late mother, Alhaja Abibatu Magaji.

Obi in a statement issued by the Peter Obi Media Reach, POMR said the move was in line with his 2023 presidential campaign promise to mobilise wealthy Nigerians to join in constructing boreholes across the country.

While commending Tinubu for taking that step, Obi nevertheless expressed regret that the Federal Government was still at the same time giving priority to wasteful projects like mansions, coastal highways, private jets instead of projects that touch on the lives of the people.

The statement read thus:

*POMR Commends Tinubu for emulating  Obi in the Boreholes Projects*

The office of the Peter Obi Media Reach, POMR wishes to thank President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for harkening to the call of our Principal, the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 election, Peter Obi to wealthy Nigerians to join him in ensuring the provision of boreholes across the country for the downtrodden in our midst.

Obi embarked on the project after witnessing what many Nigerians go through trying to get basic needs like drinking water. He had already installed some Boreholes as a short time solution in some Northern states Nasarawa, Bauchi, Kano, Zaria, Kebbi, Suleja Niger State and Sokoto where the situation is acute.

At the special anniversary of the death of his mother, Alhaja Abibatu Magaji in Abuja at the weekend, the President announced a nationwide project to construct 400 boreholes as a continuation of charity in the late mother’s memory.

The POMR commends this spirit of charity from the President as it’s in line with our principal’s desire to attend to the poor in our midst.

POMR would like to advise that this new line of thinking from the President should be reflected in the government projects which at the moment are not addressing the yearnings of the poor in our midst.

It remains shameful that in a nation where millions have no access to clean drinking water, millions of children are out of school and have no access to decent healthcare with millions of youths out of jobs, yet the government is placing priority on bogus projects like coastal highway, mansions, flyovers and buying of jets etc as a priority.

The President’s new spirit of charity if it continues will help in pulling many Nigerians out of poverty if it’s diversified. reports that the commendation of President Tinubu by Peter Obi over the personal execution of the boreholes will be seen as opposition playing its role of criticising and commending where necessary.
