Nigeria needs visionary leadership, disruptive thinker – Peter Obi 


The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, said Nigeria needs visionary leadership and disruptive thinker to get it right, also urged Nigerians in overseas to exploit their network and numbers in demanding better government in their home country.

Obi noted this in a series of his tweet on Tuesday he wrote, “It can only take one visionary leadership and disruptive thinker for Nigeria to be put back on the right trajectory. Our vision and mission is to give full expression to our democracy by moving our country from consumption to production.-PO.

“Thinking through 2023 and beyond, we must think seriously about a leadership that is imbued with competence, capacity, credibility and commitment.  The 4 Cs, will be required to turn Nigeria around. -PO.

The former Anambra state governor said, “Nigeria can no longer afford to remain a consuming economy. While meeting local demands, she must transition into trading with manufactured and finished goods, and playing in the technology in the export market.- PO.

“No country thrives economically merely by exporting its raw materials and importing virtually everything. Such a disposition weakens our economic base and employment capabilities.-PO.

“Nigerians in the Diaspora when effectively engaged can act as important ‘trade ambassadors’ and ‘negotiators’ for the country, especially at the level of attracting small-scale boutique businesses.-PO.

The presidential candidate added, “In the New Nigeria we seek, we must think out of the box and at times, disruptively. As government and as Nigerians in Diaspora, we must henceforth contemplate those global best practices that will confer comparative advantage on us, and replicate known successes that can move Nigeria from consumption to production.-PO.

He said, We intend to lay special emphasis on critical infrastructure, especially Power to ensure a clear measurable increase of 200% of today’s generation, transmission and distribution within the shortest possible time through public-private partnership.-PO.

Speaking about the insecurity Obi noted that “We will pursue intangible assets of good governance, rule of law, security of lives and properties, through an aggressive increase in personnel and equipment and inclusive training of operatives in our security agencies.

“We will emphasize patriotism, national interest, and national morale, quality of government, political will and character, which are all complimentary to the other assets. We will ensure that we have these assets in place and stress asset optimization. -PO.”
