2023 Election Not About Religion, Connections But Competence – Peter Obi

Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour party (LP), says the 2023 elections should be about competence and capacity rather than connections or religion.

The former Anambra governor said this on Monday at the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) conference in Lagos.

He said the country is in a mess due to the effects of leadership failure over the years.

“Out of 200 million Nigerians, 60 percent is supposed to be working. So it [should be] 120 million Nigerians working, but today, Nigerians that are working are under 60 million,” Obi said.

“We are in a physical mess, total physical mess because of all this. Between January this year and April, the total revenue of the federal government of Nigeria is N1, 630,000,000, 000 but expenditure is N4, 720,000,000,000. If you minus this, we have a deficit of N3, 100,000,000,000.

“How did we come here? It is the effect of leadership failure over the years. What are we going to do to come out of this?

“You need to have a visionary, articulated, competent leadership.

“The elections we are going to have next year will not be about tribe nor religion, not connections, not entitlements, it must be elections about character, competence, capacity and solutions to deliver.”
