Nigeria Has Continued To Grapple With Myriad Of Challenges – Peter Obi

The 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has said Nigeria has continued to deal with various challenges which have hindered its growth and development.

In a statement issued via his X handle on Friday, the former Governor of Anambra said the country has continued to grapple with insecurity, bad economy and other issues even more at an alarming rate.

The LP flagbearer, therefore, asked Nigerians not to allow the nation to go down under the present cocktail of challenges.

Obi added that he would deliver a Keynote Speech at The Chinua Achebe International Symposium, and the 10th Anniversary Memorial and 40th Anniversary of His seminal booklet “The Trouble with Nigeria” at Princeton University, New Jersey, USA.

However, Obi disclosed that he will not participate in the bi-monthly Twitter Space that is due today, 29th September, due to the scheduled inevitable engagement.

He wrote: “My Dear Obidients and Fellow Nigerians, I wish to humbly and regrettably inform you that I will not participate in our bi-monthly Twitter Space that is due today, 29th September, due to a scheduled inevitable engagement.

I have earlier been invited to deliver a Keynote Speech at The Chinua Achebe International Symposium, and the 10th Anniversary Memorial and 40th Anniversary of His seminal booklet “The Trouble with Nigeria” at Princeton University, New Jersey, USA.

Thankfully, my speech will focus on “The Trouble With Nigeria” as written by our Internationally renowned author, Chinua Achebe, 40 years ago, and I would like everyone to be part of it.

Sadly, Nigeria has continued to grapple with, and at an even more alarming rate, the very troubles written about by Achebe four decades ago.

However, we must not allow our nation to go down under the present cocktail of challenges. May I request that you all join me today as the event will be streamed live online?

Details are contained in the attached flyer. Thank you.”
