2023: Why Nigeria Has Continued To Move Backward

The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has revealed the reason behind the country’s downward trajectory.

HausaToday reports that Nigeria has been facing a series of challenges ranging from insecurity, high inflation, food shortage, bad economy, poor health facilities and a host of others.

Speaking during an appearance on Arise TV on Wednesday, Obi stated that the reason behind the country’s backwardness was that Nigeria’s affairs were being piloted by ‘vehicle drivers’.

The former Anambra Governor argued that the country’s affairs should be handled by sound and qualified pilots.

Obi opined that the sentiments and primitive considerations of most Nigerians during the electoral cycle had led Nigeria to its current state.

The LP presidential candidate, however, advised Nigerians to use the 2023 presidential election to choose a capable and competent leader to pilot the country’s affairs.

Meanwhile, former National Legal Adviser of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Jacob Mark, has advised the opposition party’s leadership to pacify aggrieved members.

HausaToday reports that Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and some of his loyalists are currently at loggerheads with the PDP leadership and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, over failed agreements.

Speaking on a television program, Jacob Mark said the doors to mending issues with Wike are still open.

According to him, the Rivers governor is very interested in settling issues in the PDP and won’t work against the opposition party.

He warned that ignoring the grievances of Senator Jonah Jang, former Governor Ayodele Fayose, Governor Seyi Makinde, Governor Samuel Ortom, and others is political suicide.
