Obi humbled by ‘unprecedented’ national goodwill, assures trustworthiness is important asset he will bring to bear on leadership

Amidst an ‘unprecedented’ national goodwill, evident in the massive organic rallies held across the country by Nigerians of all walks of life under the aegis of the the Obidients Movement, in support of his presidential aspiration, Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, has assured that being trusted by Nigerians is his most important asset which he would never take for granted, further assuring that if elected president, all his actions taken in the governance process must earn the trust and support of Nigerians,

In a press statement issued by the Obi-Datti Campaign office, the Labour Party presidential candidate, in continuation of his issue- driven campaign, said at the weekend that of all the qualities he boasts as a human being and citizen of Nigeria seeking to be voted into office as president of the Federal Republic come February 25, 2023, being trustworthy is the most important of them all.

“The fact that Nigerians can trust me is my most cherished asset,” Obi enthused in the statement.

In a series of tweets ostensibly to warn Nigerians against settling for less or repeating the mistakes of past, the LP candidate said: “We can no longer gamble with our fate and future. I’m running for president because I am qualified, I have the capacity, credibility, commitment, stamina, governance experience and track record. More importantly, Nigerians can trust me.”

Agonising over the state of the union, Obi noted that the Nigeria that is working today is working only for a tiny minority of the people, insisting that “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,” the former two-term Governor of Anambra State declared.

However, according to Mr. Obi, the consolation in all of ‘this ugly situation’ is that Nigerians have decided to take back their country from “the tiny minority of leaders” that have misruled it over the years, propelled by a unanimous and total desire for a better life.

“The desire to take Nigeria back is nearly unanimous. 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,” he said in a statement laced with philosophy, explaining that the damage bad leadership has done to the psyche of Nigerians is enormous, the more reason the country “is badly in need of a reformative leadership.”

“Bad leadership has hurt us deeply, damaged our psyche and diminished our potentials and dreams,“ he surmised.
