The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has said that Nigeria must re-evaluate its leadership selection process to ensure that only visionary leaders are elected.
He made the statement via his Instagram page on Tuesday, while using the opportunity to appreciate the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, for hosting him at their Annual General Conference on Monday.
The former Governor reiterated his points from the conference and said the 2023 general election will center on competence, character.
Obi shared a photo of himself and wrote, “It was a distinct honour and privilege to address the Nigerian Bar Association at their Annual General Conference yesterday.
“The warm reception was gratifying and deeply appreciated. To recap what I said, Nigeria needs true, visionary and diligent leadership to transit from its present state of failure and stagnation to growth and development.
Now that our nation is exhibiting the characteristics of a fragile and failed state, we must re-evaluate our leadership selection process to ensure that only diligent and committed leaders are voted into power, so that we can begin to rescue this nation urgently.
We must strive for a leadership imbued with competence, capacity, credibility and commitment.
I maintain that the elections in 2023 will go beyond connections, tribe or religion, but center on competence, character and commitment to deliver on the dividends of true democracy.”
