By Valentine Amanze

The Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 23, 2019 general election, Mr Peter Obi, has said that Nigeria was not developing fast because of leadership failure.
He identified the problem in his New Year message, while urging Nigerians to use the New Year (2020) as a spring board to work towards recovering and refocusing the country to find its bearing in the comity of nations.
Obi said that God has destined Nigeria to be a great nation but lamented, “Through our leadership failings over the years, we are where we shouldn't be.
"We must all therefore tell ourselves the truth that this country is dying gradually and all hands must be on deck in the New Year to redirect the ship of state away from the dyke that it's headed.”
Obi said that the prevailing hardship in the country and the needless blood letting across the country were all indexes of failure of governance and urged the political leaders to refocus their economic policies for growth and development especially in education and job creation through small and medium-seized enterprises (SMEs).
"Government should also in the New Year strive to seek a pragmatic solution to the increasing security challenges in the country,” he said.
Besides, Obi wished all Nigerians a happy and a prosperous 2020 as he prayed for enduring justice and peace in the society.
