The Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 23, 2019 general election, Mr Peter Obi has said that our country Nigeria is not where she should be and blames it on failure of leadership. This was contained in his new year message made available to the press by his media office
Obi then asks Nigerians to use the new year 2020 as a spring board to work towards recovering and refocusing this country to find its bearing in the comity of nations.
The former Governor of Anambra state said that God has destined us to be a great people and a great nation but through our leadership failings over the years we are where we shouldn’t be.
“We must all therefore tell ourselves the truth that this country is dying gradually and all hands must be on deck in the new year to redirect the ship of state away from the dyke that it’s headed.
Obi noted in a statement from his media office that the prevailing hardship in the country including the needless blood letting across the country are all indexes of failure of governance and urged the political leaders to refocus their economic polices for growth and development especially in education and job creation through small and medium-seized enterprises, SMEs.
“Government should also in the new year strive to seek a pragmatic solution to the increasing security challenges in the country.
Obi finally wished all Nigerians a happy and a prosperous 2020 as hej prays for enduring Justice and peace in our society.
