The new Nigeria, is one in which citizens can hold leaders accountable – Obi

Our reporter| The New Nigeria which is craved for, is one in which the people can hold their leaders accountable, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 presidential election has said.

Obi, who stated this via his Facebook page on Sunday, said both leaders and those who are being led must learn to accept constructive criticisms which would make each one better.

“The new Nigeria we seek, is one in which citizens can criticise and hold leaders accountable,” the former Anambra state governor said.

Obi’s comment comes on the heels of recent debates involving some persons who questioned/constructively criticised his actions/pronouncements, and some of his supporters who censured the critics for speaking up.

The LP flagbearer said he welcomes such constructive criticisms, adding that they will make his leadership better, adaptive, and responsive.

He further noted that those who criticize him in the open only mean well for him and for Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Obi has denied reports claiming he got personal jets from some “eminent” Nigerians for his campaign.

Obi said the claims, which have gone viral on social media, are untrue.

“Recently, several social media reports have alluded that some eminent Nigerians have donated their personal jets for my use during my campaign,” the presidential flagbearer tweeted on Sunday.

“In as much as I appreciate the expression of such hopes, I have never received any of such offer.”

“I pray that those eminent Nigerians mentioned, are not unduly distracted by such social media utterances,” he added. “May God Almighty bless those eminent Nigerians always.”
