You Don't Have to Go to School to Be a Good Leader: Peter Obi Criticizes Tinubu

By Mo Hanif

Peter Obi, the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the recently concluded 2023 general election, took to ARISE TV to discuss the crucial role of honour and integrity in leadership. Drawing examples from notable leaders such as Abraham Lincoln, Bill Gates, and Winston Churchill, Obi emphasized that great leaders can emerge despite educational challenges, but they must be honourable about their past.

During the interview, Obi highlighted the significance of the process through which individuals come into office, asserting that it is far more important than the office itself. He stressed the need for leaders to possess the moral right to govern and make the right decisions, cautioning against those who come into power through questionable means. "You cannot come in through the window and start to clean the house," he remarked.

According to Obi, honour and integrity are foundational aspects upon which a society is built. He expressed concern about the prevailing issue of certificate forgery in the country, emphasizing its detrimental impact on the morale of the nation. By addressing this issue, Obi seeks to highlight the importance of transparency and credibility in leadership.

It is noteworthy that Peter Obi, along with Atiku Abubakar of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), has challenged the victory of Bola Tinubu at the Supreme Court after losing their initial challenge at the tribunal. Despite his third-place finish in the election, Obi continues to advocate for strong values and principles in leadership, aiming to inspire a sense of accountability and integrity among politicians and public servants.

In conclusion, Peter Obi's appearance on ARISE TV shed light on the crucial role of honour and integrity in leadership. With thought-provoking insights and references to notable leaders, Obi highlighted the need for leaders to possess the moral right to govern and make sound decisions. As Nigeria navigates through the post-election period, the discussion around these values remains vital for the country's growth and development.
