Nigeria’s Biggest Problem Is Failure Of Leaders To Look Into The Future And Invest In It – Peter Obi

Former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi and presidential aspirant says Nigeria’s biggest problem is leadership failure.

Mr. Obi said this when he appeared on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.

“If I am to say what Nigeria’s biggest problem is, you can see that it is leadership failure,” he said.

“What we are experiencing now is the cumulative effect of leadership failure over the years. A leadership that has failed to look into the future and invest in the future.

“So, what Nigerians want to see is a leader who has the competence and capacity to start tackling the innermost problems affecting our country, starting from the issue of cohesion and unity, we are so divided today as a nation so there’s need to bring us together”.

When asked what the next president can do to allay the pains of Nigerians in the first few days of assuming office, Obi, who is highly rate by Nigerians, said he doesn’t believe in the idea of ‘first hundred days’ but rather he believes that issues should be tackled as quickly as possible.

“I don’t believe in first 100 days because after it, then you lose momentum.

“The role of a leader is solving problems, bringing solutions to the problems and not creating more problems or blames”.

Mr Obi declared his intention to run for presidency on March 24 in Awka, Anambra State at a gathering of traditional rulers.

On the need for the southeast to produce the next president, he said the Ohaneze group has been appealing to the conscience of other geopolitical zones.

“We’re not saying it is our turn by force, all I’m saying is, it is a humble appeal”.

“Ohaneze is appealing to the conscience of other zones to see our cry and to see that we are doing so based on our love and commitment for a better Nigeria”.
