The former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has said that the Coronavirus pandemic has brought to light years of failed leadership in Nigeria.
This was disclosed on Saturday via a webinar organised by Bridge Leadership Foundation. Obi added that it was about time Nigerians voted in credible leaders into power, in order to turn things around.
He said, “This COVID-19 offers us an opportunity to see the cumulative effect of leadership failure over the years in our health infrastructure, in our education, in our economy, in everything. It is time to have people who are competent, who have capacity across the political space.”
“Nigeria has time to realise that we now have to change the process of selecting our leaders because it is weak. If you look at what has been happening in Nigeria in recent times, we are now in a situation where the lunatics have taken over the asylum and they must leave now – all of us, including myself. It is time to get people who have ideas and everything.”
