According to Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi, God gave Nigeria everything it needed except for effective leadership.
The presidential hopeful claimed on Sunday at an online discussion held by the Peter Obi Support Network (POSN) that the country is currently suffering from the cumulative consequence of poor leadership.
“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,” he said.
“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.”
