2023 general elections, provide us as Nigerians to redirect this ship called Nigeria and sail it towards the path of progress. The major issues we have at this time as a people is most likely the delegates who have the real power to elect individuals that would bear the flag of their party and by implication, being the ones we the electorates are left with the option of choosing to vote in as an elected official of the government.
Yesterday, Mr Peter Obi, a distinguished individual, concluded his tour by meeting the delegates around the country (36 states of the federation). The reality is that a lot of Nigerians want to see a sincere leadership– Purposeful leadership that will bring back hope to the ordinary citizen of Nigeria and many of us trust Peter Obi to deliver on this promise based on his very sound and unarguable track record. I for one, think I am an incurable optimist but then again, our country seems to give one reason to think backing down! One question that I have constantly asked myself without any answers is, what if, Peter Obi doesn’t emerge at the primaries? I say this not as a dooms player but as someone who tries also to be realistic. Who is that individual that Nigerians can trust so well? The mood of the country is similar to the mood we had in 2015 when President Muhammadu Buhari took over the reins of power.
If we have three names it is, Peter Obi, Peter Obi, Peter Obi!
In this state of confusion, I still find hope that our dear delegates will vote for a man who would protect the future and aspirations of their children. A man who is ready to go hungry just to see that as a people, we have food to eat.
Mr Peter Obi has always started; “The problem with Nigeria today is an accumulated effect of leadership failure over the years”.
2023, provides us with the opportunity to once again take back our country and make it a productive nation. A nation that with proper leadership and planning, we can compete with the developed countries of this world.
I urge our northern delegates, to stand by Peter Obi. You have seen, that he is not the normal politician, what we need now is that extraordinary leadership to take us out of where we are today and perhaps take us to Nirvana.
Also, know this, you can’t do it without your Permanent Voters Card. We are almost at the final lap of it. Do the needful now!
I Pray for you Peter Obi, may you happen to us all, Amen.
