Obi stated this via his Instagram page where he appreciated the Nigerian Bar Association for hosting him at their Annual General Conference on Monday.
Reiterating the points he made during the event, Obi noted that the 2023 election will go beyond connection and religion.

“The warm reception was gratifying and deeply appreciated. To recap what I said, Nigeria needs true, visionary and diligent leadership to transit from its present state of failure and stagnation to growth and development.
“Now that our nation is exhibiting the characteristics of a fragile and failed state, we must re-evaluate our leadership selection process to ensure that only diligent and committed leaders are voted into power, so that we can begin to rescue this nation urgently.
We must strive for a leadership imbued with competence, capacity, credibility and commitment.
“I maintain that the elections in 2023 will go beyond connections, tribe or religion, but center on competence, character and commitment to deliver on the dividends of true democracy.”
