Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi has said that only those that do not wish Nigeria well still support the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He made this known on Tuesday in Awka, Anambra State at a roadshow organised by the PDP to raise awareness about its candidates, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Obi.

The former Anambra governor said that the APC-led Federal Government has failed and does not deserve to be reelected in the February 16 presidential election.

Describing the country as “collapsing” under the present administration, Obi told the mammoth gathering of students, workers, traders and artisans that only an Atiku presidency could arrest the trend.

He stressed that Atiku’s past records and experience as a serial wealth creators places him in pole position to refocus the country on the path of prosperity and urged Nigerians to support him.

Obi said, “The groups are endorsing us because they are seeing the reality. Nigerians have seen that the present government does not have the capacity to govern Nigeria. I want to assure you that more endorsements will come because people are not happy with this government.

“We have a country that is collapsing and it is up to Nigerians to know who to choose. If you think what you are getting in the last three years is okay, then you remain where you are, but I know it is not okay. Our country is now worse.

“The condition of Nigeria should worry everyone. We have a very bad record on insecurity; we have moved from number seven to number three on insecurity. After Afghanistan, it is Iraq and we are the number three and this shameful situation should worry all Nigerians. We now have the highest number of poor people living on the surface of the earth in Nigeria and it should also worry all Nigerians.”
