Peter Obi, Presidential Candidate of Labour Party says Nigeria needs visionary leadership and a disruptive thinker to get it right.
In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Obi also urged Diaspora Nigerians to play their roles in holding the Nigerian government accountable.
“It can only take one visionary leadership and disruptive thinker for Nigeria to be put back on the right trajectory. Our vision and mission is to give full expression to our democracy by moving our country from consumption to production.-PO,” the former Anambra State governor said.
Urging Nigerians overseas to exploit their network and numbers in demanding better government in their home country, he wrote: “You have the network and numbers to be able to negotiate the priorities of the government, especially during the election period as the one we are embarking on soon.
“You should be able to place pressing issues on the agenda of the candidates and subsequently, on the front burners for the new government that will be formed.-PO.”
He continued: “Besides voting, a citizen’s most coveted role is holding an elected government accountable. With your education, exposure and understanding of government responsibilities in your host country, and collective leverage, it is your duty to help hold your state and national government accountable back home.”
He said when elected, his administration will entrench good governance, promote rule of law and aggressively tackle insecurity.
“We will pursue intangible assets of good governance, rule of law, security of lives and properties, through an aggressive increase in personnel and equipment and inclusive training of operatives in our security agencies.
“We will emphasize patriotism, national interest, and national morale, quality of government, political will and character, which are all complimentary to the other assets. We will ensure that we have these assets in place and stress asset optimization. -PO,” he said.
