‘The health challenges of President Muhammed Buhari, no doubt, contributed negatively to the state of the nation today’
By Valentine Amanze
On February 25, 2023 Nigerians will elect the new president, who they feel, will steady a sinking ship of a nation.
It is not about person, tribe or religion, but the future of Nigeria. It is another opportunity to get it right as a united and a progressive country.
Peter Obi, Atiku Abubakar, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and others have submitted their credentials for the plum job.
However, in a sane society, any of them that had questionable character or convicted of any crime, would not participate in the election.
That is where Peter Obi is getting more rating than others in the forthcoming election.
He has not been found guilty of any crime in the law court.
This is the man, who revolutionized governance in Anambra State by proving to the world that leadership is not about stealing public funds.
He proved his prudency by saving a whooping N75 billion for Anambra State, which he handed over to his successor, Willy Obiano – a fit no governor has done in Nigeria.
Soo long Nigerians have yearned for a credible and a purposeful leader that will bring the country out of the present crisis, Obi remains the choice.
Peter Obi of Labour Party (LP) represents the aspiration of many Nigerians, who want a positive change.
Unlike other candidates, Obi has solution to the Nigeria’s woes in his blueprint of the nation’s revival.
His youthfulness and energy are very crucial for the work ahead.
A sick man cannot lead a sick nation.
The health challenges of President Muhammed Buhari, no doubt, contributed negatively to the state of the nation today.
Of course, having gone that journey before, Nigerians are wiser now.
Recent developments in the country have made the task of electing a credible candidate simple.
Less than 22 days to the election, no electricity, no network, no water, no good road, insecurity and no money. Is there any leadership in the country?
One thing the maladministration of the APC federal government has done well is punishing Nigeria youths with joblessness and poverty, which led to the #EndSARS movement that ratled the government and claimed many lives.
We all witnessed the 2020 #EndSARS protest in Nigeria. It is not going to be business as usual for corrupt politicians.
Time has changed. The hunter has become the hunted.
Nigeria will not lose lives if INEC holds a credible election on February 25, 2023. INEC officials must think about the future of Nigeria and avoid compromises.
This election is very crucial in the history of the nation.
Yes, temptation must come in the guise of financial inducement from corrupt politicians, remember their children are abroad; INEC and security officials must not fail Nigerians.
