Nigeria Is In Trouble With Leaders Whose Credentials And Identities Can’t Be Verified – Peter Obi

The 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has lamented the situation in Nigeria, saying a lot of things are wrong and need to change in the country.
Lamenting that the country is in trouble, Obi said the trouble is however self-inflicted.

Speaking at the Chinua Achebe Symposium at Princeton University on Friday, Obi said Nigerians must start working towards a country propelled by competence and committed to fighting corruption.

He submitted that the leadership must be committed to the rule of law and in what appears to be a dig at the controversies surrounding the academic qualifications of President Bola Tinubu, Obi added that the leaders of Nigeria must have verifiable identities and certificates.

In a series of posts via his account on X (formerly Twitter), the former Anambra State Governor noted that rascality must no longer be a measure of success in Nigeria.

Obi said: “I’ve just commenced the delivery of my keynote address at the Chinua Achebe Symposium at Princeton University- the trouble with Nigeria is self-inflicted. If Achebe was alive, he would have taken back the book. When he wrote it, there was no trouble.

Now, there is real trouble in Nigeria.


We can start thinking of a new Nigeria with competence, and capacity that is committed to fighting corruption. Is it possible to fight corruption? The answer is yes!

Rascality has become a measure of success in Nigeria. That must change.”

“We must have leadership that is committed to the rule of law.. that has an identity and credentials that can be verified.

If India can feed its population, Nigeria with one-seventh of her population can do the same.”
