The 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has lamented the challenge of bad leadership that has plagued Nigeria over many years.
Obi pointed out that Nigeria as a country is blessed with many good things including fair weather, fertile soil and others but a major challenge is bad leadership.
He however pointed out that such must not be allowed to continue, adding that Nigeria is a country all its citizens should be proud of if things are done right.
The former Anambra Governor promised to change the narrative, change the tide and set Nigeria on the path to greatness if elected President in 2023.
HausaToday reports he made the submissions on Sunday during an online session hosted by the Peter Obi Support Network (POSN).
Obi lamented that the current situation in which Nigeria has found itself is a cumulative effect of bad leadership over many years.
In his words, “what is happening in Nigeria now is that nobody knows where we are going and when you don’t know where you are going, every road will lead you there. If you turn left it is right, if you turn right it is left and that is where we are.”
“So we want to stop that. We want to know the destination to this journey and know that we are on the road to that destination so that people can start having hope in a country called Nigeria in a country that is the best and has everything to be proud of.
“God gave us good weather, fertile land, everything. The only thing he didn’t give us is good leadership over the years.
“All we are going through today is a cumulative effect of leadership failures over the years where people have chosen not to serve this country faithfully. Otherwise, we won’t be going through what we are going through. We can’t even feed ourselves.
“I can turn this ship around so that we know where we are going. We are not going to solve it overnight but we can start by being on the right track.”
