Obi, who spoke during the LP presidential campaign rally in Bayelsa State, which was held at the Oxbow Lake Pavilion in Yenagoa on Friday, said that citizens would no longer be harrased by the police and other security agencies.

According to him, the responsibility of the government is to cater for the poor,  Datti and I have said we will secure and unite Nigeria. We will make sure that Nigerians are governed by the rule of law. The were will no more police harassment. Police will no longer harass students for having laptops.

“We are promising what we are going to do. All those people have been promising you a lot and they have not delivered anything.

“Next year, we are going to have an election that will not be based on tribe; we are going to have an election that will not be based on religion; we are going to have an election that will not be by my turn.

Obi while pledging to clean up environmental pollution in Bayelsa and other Niger Delta states said, “Bayelsa deserves more. It has given so much to Nigeria.
