Dr. Chibuike Echem, Convener of the Nigeria Rebirth Group, has professed his belief in the fact that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, will help in building a better a new Nigeria.
While speaking at a “Special Press Conference on the State of the Nation,” in Abuja, Dr Chibuike Echem mentioned that the upcoming elections in 2023 will play an important role in Nigeria and the life of Nigerians. He said that the sternness of the election is a major reason he endorses Peter Obi.
He stated; “2023 election is a very important poll that will usher a new Nigeria once we’re able to get it right, thus a very important aspect has triggered my sincere declaration and support for Mr Peter Obi as the capable candidate for Nigeria at this time.“I hereby announce the voluntary withdrawal of my membership from the Young Progressives Party to support the present Nigerian Project.”
He expressed his bitterness towards the unaccountability posture among people who are in ruling positions and also the continuance of corruption. He said the state of insecurity and the fact that some people have decided to take advantage of it is unacceptable.
According to him, “ Nigeria is considered the hope for the black race and black nation all over the World and thus referred to as the ‘giant of Africa’ based on her numerical strength and values. “Historically, Nigeria got her independence with youths taking charge, the likes of Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, Sir Tafewa Balewa, Mr Enahoro, Sir Herbert Macaulay and Dr Awolowo all being proactive and falling within the youth brackets.
“Nigeria was destined to become the leading and manual guide for other nations as evidently seen in her ability to harness the potential of her God-blessed citizens.
“Gradually, Nigeria became toxic as tribe and religious affiliation became part of the political ideology of ruling and opposing parties, all these necessitated poor governmental policies in the areas of appointments, national infrastructural attraction, job creation and nominations into various national and international organizations.”
