A former Governor of Anambra State and prominent Igbo leader, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, says Peter Obi, the presidential flag-bearer of the Labour Party for the 2023 election, will change the psyche and performance of Nigerian governors.
TOP MEDIA reports that Ezeife also declared that Nigeria is in for a “fantastic major change” in the eventuality of Obi emerging as the country’s next president.
“If we get the center right, the circumference can take care of itself; if we get a good President and we have the hope that Peter Obi is to be sworn in as President of Nigeria in May this year; when that happens, even the sitting or incoming governors and other political leaders up to chairmen of local government areas will be affected.
“They will be influenced to perform because when the top is not working, sometimes it influences the rest of the organization,” Ezeife told Vanguard.
“So, I think that we are in for a change, fantastic major change, introduced by God Himself.
“You can see the hand of God in what we are doing. All we now have to do is pray more that God keeps His hand until the end.
“We are looking for a new Nigeria where leaders must be leaders and not just people who are interested in stealing money from the people.
“The current governors, you can see, are not doing very well, but it is also because the rest of the political class has been very bad.”
