Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 election, Peter Obi, says Nigeria at this moment in her history requires only a leadership imbued with competence.
At an interface with Nigerians in Washington D.C, Mr Obi mentioned just right governance merely interprets to 8 vital governance values and an unfettered dedication to upholding them.
In his opinion Nigeria calls for a leadership being responsible, clear, responsive, equitable, inclusive, efficient.
Along with those, the former Anambra State governor mentioned theleader must at all times follow the rule of law, and make his govt participatory and consensus-oriented.
He mentioned there are the 4 Cs, and government values required to show Nigeria, including that what Nigeria wishes is a “government imbued with competence, capability, credibility and dedication”.
The LP flagbearer additional mentioned that the principle duty of the electorate in governance is twofold: to elect their leaders and secondly, to carry such leaders responsible.
He additionally shared that Nigeria’s Diaspora has a seamless position and duty towards nation-building and national development.
“With $20 billion in remittances in 2021, Nigeria ranks 6th behind the top five recipient countries; namely; India Mexico, China, the Philippines, Egypt, and Bangladesh.
“Expert assessments indicate that with proper policy and planning, we can leapfrog to about $60b in remittances annually. That will translate to about 14% of our total GDP.
“In 2021 Nigeria’s foreign direct investment (FDI) was $4.8 billion. Therefore, I see Diaspora remittances as the new normal and becoming Nigeria’s Official Development Assistance (ODA); some kind of foreign loan-without interest,” the former governor enunciated.
