Labor Party presidential candidate Peter Obi noted on Tuesday that Nigeria needs to re-evaluate its leader selection process to ensure competent individuals are voted into power.
Obi stated this via his Instagram page, where he appreciated the Nigerian Bar Association for hosting him at their annual general conference on Monday.
Reiterating the points he made at the event, Obi noted that the 2023 election goes beyond connection and religion.
The former governor of Anambra state shared a photo of himself at the event, writing: “It was a special honor and privilege to address the Nigerian Bar Association at their annual general conference yesterday.
“The warm reception was pleasing and much appreciated. To sum up what I said, Nigeria needs real, visionary and diligent leadership to move from its current state of failure and stagnation to growth and development.
“As our nation exhibits the hallmarks of a fragile and failed state, we must re-evaluate our leadership selection process to ensure only diligent and committed leaders are voted into power so that we can urgently begin to save this nation.
We must strive for leadership that is imbued with competence, capacity, credibility and commitment.
“I maintain that the 2023 elections will go beyond affiliation, tribe or religion, but focus on competence, character and commitment to deliver the dividends of true democracy.”
