The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in the February 25 general election, Mr Peter Obi has claimed the “nation’s democracy is deeply troubled, while its destiny remains uncertain and precarious.”
Obi said it is regrettable that the country is now in an era where foundational pillars of democracy are undermined by prevalent impunity and pervasive violence and bloodletting.
In a statement via his verified Twitter handle on Sunday, Obi lamented that “the country lacks selfless leaders committed to
to national interest, sustainable development and innovative thinking that offers every Nigerian freedom of choice of abode, protection of lives and property and ordered liberties.”
His statement is coming on the heels of the commemoration of “June 12 Democracy Day” in Nigeria.
