Poor Choice Of Leadership Is Nigeria’s Biggest Challenge – Peter Obi
The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi said the biggest challenge of the country is our poor choice of leadership.
He said this during the party’s rally in Calabar, Cross rivers state, on Wednesday.
He said his government would ensure that universities in the country functioned effectively, devoid of incessant strikes
Obi, who was received by a large crowd of his supporters at the UJ Esuene Stadium, the venue of the rally, earlier had a town hall meeting with the youths.
He thereafter paid a courtesy call on the Obong of Calabar, His Eminence, Ekpo Abasi-Otu.
He said that he would not only secure and unite the country but ensure that there would be law and order if elected.
Obi further spoke on his plan for the development of Cross River.
According to him, the state has cocoa, we will develop it and ensure we export it.
“We will also boost the tourism potential of the state because it is the tourism capital of Nigeria.
“We want to make Nigeria work. You can trust us.
“Don’t vote for people you cannot trust to turn around the nation,” the presidential hopeful said.
Also, a chieftain of the party, Prof. Pat Utomi, said a new Nigeria is possible but would start with Nigerians voting for the right person in 2023.
Utomi said the country’s challenges had persisted because the people kept electing leaders that did not care for the citizens.
He also said that the story could be changed with the Permanent Voter Cards and voting rights.
The National President of the party, Mr Julius Abure, also spoke in a similar vein.
Abure said that poor choices of leadership contributed largely to Nigeria’s development problem.
He, therefore, appealed to Nigerians to make the right choice in 2023 by voting for the party’s candidates at all levels.
