Labour Party (LP) Presidential candidate in the 2023 election, Mr Peter Obi, has charged President Bola Tinubu’s administration to come with concrete plans on how to tackle Nigeria’s current challenges not giving excuses.

Obi said the problems in the country are well known to all Nigerians and that what they need is concrete solutions.

In a post on his X handle on Friday, 21st June 2024, Obi said the country needs a comprehensive approach to tackle the specific challenges.

According to him, “We are the poverty capital of the world, among the most insecure people on earth, among the hungriest, have poor education quality and the highest number of out-of-school children, high infant mortality, corruption, unemployment, the highest income gap between the poor and the rich, high corruption perception index, infrastructure and healthcare challenges, and more.”


Obi further said it is disheartening to hear those in charge, who were elected to address the problems, make excuses that Nigeria is not the only country having difficulties, and struggling with poverty and hunger.

He advised that instead of merely acknowledging that other countries face similar challenges, they need to come up with a thorough plan of action to tackle the unique struggles and that what the people need is concrete solutions and a clear vision to address these issues, not comparisons that downplay their circumstances.

Obi therefore urged those in leadership positions to offer tangible solutions, not mere reminders that other nations face similar challenges.

“We need a comprehensive approach to tackle our specific challenges, not generalisations that dismiss our experiences. A true leader provides direction, guidance, solutions, and reassurance in times of crisis,” Obi stated.

“This is the hallmark of visionary leadership and a trait of nations that are making progress and advancing their development. They don’t simply state the obvious but offer a roadmap for overcoming obstacles.

“Just like a pilot, who doesn’t just announce turbulence; they assure passengers that they will do everything possible to ensure a safe journey. Only then can we begin to trust that our country is in capable hands, working towards a brighter future for all Nigerians,” he added.
