Obi described the current state of Nigeria as the effect of bad leadership that dates back to the beginning of government in Nigeria.
“What is happening in Nigeria now is that nobody knows where we are going and when you don’t know where you are going, every road will lead you there. If you turn left it is right if you turn right it is left and that is where we are.”
“So we want to stop that. We want to know the destination to this journey and know that we are on the road to that destination so that people can start having hope in a country called Nigeria in a country that is the best and has everything to be proud of.
“All we are going through today is a cumulative effect of leadership failures over the years where people have chosen not to serve this country faithfully. Otherwise, we won’t be going through what we are going through. We can’t even feed ourselves.”

Obi said these reforms won’t happen overnight but will be a working and veritable step towards a lasting and generational reform.
“I can turn this ship around so that we know where we are going. We are not going to solve it overnight but we can start by being on the right track.”
