“There is Nigeria; but there are no Nigerians. Currently, Nigeria works for a small minority of people; Nigeria must work for all Nigerians. Nigerians must be able to dwell securely and in safety wherever they live. This is the first duty of government.”
Obi also disclosed that the desire of Nigerians was to take back their country, stressing, “it is total and unanimous because everybody wishes for a better life.
“We may be used to the old order; but we cannot vote for continuity of corruption, recklessness, impunity and poverty. Deprivation is not habit-forming. Nigerians desire a better life.”
Besides, Obi alerted Nigerians on the damage successive bad leadership had done to their psyche, while declaring, “Nigeria is in need of a reformative leadership. Bad leadership has hurt us deeply, damaged our psyche and diminished our potentials and dreams.”
