2023: See What Senior Lawyer, Adegboruwa Said About Peter Obi That Is Trending

by Victor Ndubuisi

According to a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, cannot change the nation.

The former governor of Anambra State is not the new face of any national change program, according to Adegboruwa, who made this claim in an opinion article on Tuesday.

The senior lawyer accused Obi of being part of the problems plaguing the Nigerian young, claiming that the former governor is not the solution to the nation’s leadership dilemma.

Adegboruwa noted that Obi is utilizing the anger, despair, and apathy of Nigerian youths to project himself as a friend of the masses.


The lawyer claimed that given the way Nigeria is set up now, the LP presidential candidate would fare worse than President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said: “I have always advocated for an end to the marginalization of the South East by the ‘owners’ of Nigeria.

“So if we say that Obi should be president in order to give the Igbos a sense of belonging, I will gladly accept and support that venture.

“But to portray Obi as the new face of any transformation agenda for Nigeria, please perish the thought.

“This was the same way that Buhari was paraded as the messiah for Nigeria in 2015. Buhari even presented a ‘progressive’ manifesto to us with fantastic promises only to turn around to disown it after his election.

“Obi has jumped from the All Progressive Grand Alliance which gave him the platform to be governor, to the PDP, and now to the Labour Party. With Nigeria’s current structure, a million Obi will end up worse than Buhari.


“There is an urgent need to restructure Nigeria and if we keep recycling politicians every four years, there will be nothing for the masses except lamentations. The 1999 Constitution of Nigeria is itself the enemy of our development and progress.

“It is time to discard it and enact a new Constitution that will reflect the will of the people, instead of jumping around with politicians every four years with no mission in focus. That is the 2023 dilemma. Restructuring is the answer, after all.”
