Plans for Nigeria, Need for Change - Full Obi’s Speech At Chatham House

On Monday, the Nigerian politician and Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, spoke at the Chatham House in the United Kingdom about his plans for Nigeria if elected President next month.

He began his speech by expressing his gratitude to Chatham House, Dr Alex Vines and his team for their commitment to engaging with Nation building in Nigeria.

He then went on to discuss the alarming insecurity in the country, the economic crisis, the rentier political economy and the lack of leadership that has rendered Nigeria a failing state with a worsening leadership crisis.

Obi also highlighted the importance of understanding leadership, institutions and demographics in order to bring about change. He explained that demography is driving the change seen in Africa, with election after election in the last year in which the establishment parties are being upturned by new or small parties.

He then discussed his vision of policy change and institutional development, rooted in the push for a broadened scope of social mobility and freedom for Nigerians and their children.

He and his running mate, Senator Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, are committed to a new politics that starts with the ethics of servant-leaders and anchored on the marriage of clean hearts and skilful hands.

Obi concluded his speech by outlining his governance priorities, which focus on securing Nigeria, ending banditry and insurgency, and uniting the nation.

He also discussed the importance of strong leadership signals, a robust reform of the security governance structure, and strong collaboration with the private sector and development groups in order to provide the required services and deliver results for every Nigerian.
