Leadership failure, Nigeria’s biggest problem – Peter Obi

Posted 1 wk, 1 day ago
LAGOS—FORMER governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi has described Nigeria’s march to nationhood as full of many regrettable acts that have brought the country  where it is presently. Obi was speaking at the weekend at the annual Kingdom Submit 2018 by the Baptist Family Church, in Surulere, Lagos.

Ex-governor of Anambra state, Mr. Peter Obi
Obi who was invited to share his idea about leadership flowing his practical and universally acknowledged   exemplary stewardship in Anambra State, said that he agreed   with Prof. Chinua Achebe that nothing was wrong with Nigeria, but simply and squarely the failure of leadership.

Drawing many examples from his tenure in Anambra and from different leadership positions he had   occupied, he said that it was regrettable that leaders are often alone because everybody about them   seemed to be pursuing selfish ends, and that Nigeria needed leaders with strong characters to say no to so many wrongs.

Obi recalled how those in charge of different government agencies came to him for one thing or the other that would benefit him and how, by the grace of God and prayers, he was able to resist them.

“I cannot recount how many times allocation of lands were brought to me to sign for myself, the offer of houses in government housing estates, so many other offers, but I focused on the good of the people and of the state.  Incredibly, some on learning that I was saving money for the state wanted me to do abracadabra with it, but the compelling good of the people and the state captured the better part of me,” Obi said.

On the way forward for Nigeria, he called on Nigerians to always elect those with proven history of diligent management of resources as their leaders, especially those with the knowledge of the economy.

He said it was about time Nigerians realized that leadership started and ended with service.

to the people.

Obi thanked the Baptist Church for organizing such a fora focused on leadership and urged other Churches to come alive with ways of seeking solution to Nigerians many self-inflicted problems. He insisted that some Churches have lost their calling and have become part of the problem by failure to advice those that govern alright and said that for the society to rediscover its pristine values, that the Church must be part of it.
