Peter Obi: In Nigeria, Nobody Tells You The Truth When You Are In Power by Introvertedmarc: 7:25am On Nov 04, 2019
Peter Obi, vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019 presidential election, says people in power do not get told the truth.

Obi spoke on Friday as a guest speaker at the first convocation of Chrisland University, Abeokuta.

Speaking on ‘Creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship: A critical intersection for economic development in Africa’, Obi said the challenges besetting the country are many.

He noted that the failure of the leaders to invest in education and entrepreneurship led the country to its present economic state.

He blamed the leaders for their roles in promoting corruption.

“The truth is that in Nigeria, the problem is over 75%. The country has been criminalised. Quote me, I am talking from experience of somebody who had served, I was there for eight years,” he said.

“What I found in Nigerians and your parents here, including me, I am a victim of that, I was governor for eight years, you can hardly see anybody who tells you something is wrong.

“Everybody calls you his excellency, that since you came, things have changed, even, when you know that nothing has changed.

It is just that we have a government that has criminalised the society and people celebrate criminality. So, nobody could say to them, stop.

“Those who steal, if they come to church they will give them front seats, so, why would they not steal? They are the ones who are given chieftaincy tittles, they are the ones who get tittles in the world. So, we need to change all that.”


He urged the youth not to “toe the lines of the previous leaders in the country”.

It is our custom that leaders are infallible, once you tell them the truth you are an enemy, they rather thrive on hypocritical followers that are ultimate victims of the retogressive system.

Your supporters who share the cake with you are sycophants and won't bother telling you the truth but the poor masses would always tell you people the truth and you people would always turn your deaf ears to the masses.

Everybody calls you his excellency, that since you came, things have changed, even, when you know that nothing has changed

between the wailers and the zombies on nairaland, the umbrella and broom apologists, the tribalism gang etc.

Can you now see that even the people you support blindly know for a fact that you are all brainless stooges. Until you start holding them accountable nothing will change in this your yeye country.

but as usual, everyone’s got an opinion we must respect no matter how cringeworthy it may seem.

............... you knew the truth and the right thing but was only waiting for the misguided soul like yours to come company with you.
when you had the opportunity to do it right you failed yourself but mind you it is too early to regret, rather too late to regret.

i think since he already know the truth he will know how to filter whatever imformation that is given to him to know the truth. The worst is when you dont know the truth and totally depend on the political joblee to give u the tell you the truth.

You shall know the truth and it shall set you free.


Not all that is true is the truth.

It is TRUE that you have some symptoms of a terrible sickness in your body.....but the TRUTH is that....

as a child of God, you are healed by his sacrifice for you on the cross.

Know this truth today and it shall set you free from your sins and sicknesses.


Jesus said that healing is the children's food...

Are you sick? Come out of sin and accept Jesus as your Lord and savior....

Then the package of healing that is available on the cross becomes yours...

Jesus, the greatest healer of all time, said that healing is for the children of the kingdom of God.

Run to Jesus. That's the solution.

Political leadership is a scam in Nigeria.

Sycophancy and pull him down syndrome is a trademark in Nigeria.

Nigeria factor is drawing Nigeria back in terms of economic development.
