Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, has urged Nigerians to back his bid to revitalize the country in the upcoming elections.
Obi expressed his gratitude at a recent book launch event in Abuja for “Peter Obi: Many Voices One Perspective”. He thanked the event organizers for their faith in him and for joining him in his quest to create a better Nigeria.
“We are committed to it, as I told all the supporters, we need people, we need all of you to support us, especially in these final days to reach the end of this phase.
“We cannot succeed without your intervention, so as you launch this book, please be part of what we are doing to change Nigeria,” he said.
Peter Obi declared that the 2023 election is a crucial one and implored all citizens to participate.
“If we get it wrong, nobody can tell what next will happen. In all I am doing, I will always wish Nigeria the best.
“I know you will too and in doing that, I urge you to be part of the new Nigeria Datti and I are fighting for,” he said.
Prof. Okay Ikechukwu, a Professor of Strategic Management and Human Capital Development at Nnamdi Azikiwe University, praised the book as containing the successful accounts of Peter Obi. The 969-page publication was reviewed by the professor.
He highlighted that the book, consisting of contributions from various authors, showcases consistent themes of integrity, character, remarks, and legacies of success regarding Peter Obi.
He acknowledged Nigeria’s abundant blessings but noted its potential is hampered by poor leadership and resource mismanagement. He expressed confidence in Obi’s ability to turn the country around, stating that “the testimony of how he worked is all here in the book”.
He said “It is about a man who is widely believed to possess the world-class leadership attributes desperately needed by Nigerians now to salvage the country and enthrone a new Nigeria.
“The achievement of this goal will ultimately depend on the capacity of Nigerians to insist on integrity as a fundamental leadership trait in the 2023 elections.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the publication was edited by a team of media experts, led by Prof. Chinyere Stella Okunna, the first female Professor of Mass Communication in Nigeria and Sub-Saharan Africa. The group included Valentine Obienyem, Daniel Onwukwe, and Esin Osuji.
