The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, has appealed to Nigerians to interrogate those who seek to lead them in order to appraise their qualifications for the job.
Obi made this appeal while speaking at the annual conference of the Nigeria Institute of Architecture at the International Conference Centre, Calabar.
He described all those vying for the position of the president as applicants, saying that the interface with Nigerians at different for a represented interviewing sessions where each applicant should tell Nigerians who he was, his family and educational background, as well as his antecedents in public offices.
He said that any person who was unable to do so or whose narration was crooked should not be voted in as it was a mirror of how crooked a leader he would turn out to be.
Obi who took time to go through what he would do, saying that fighting security and uniting Nigerians would be his priority if hired to manage the country.
Describing the task of leading Nigeria at this particular time, Obi said that it should only be for those who are both mentally and physically fit and not those that seek to govern through third parties.
Reeling out many problems confronting Nigeria and using statistics to back them up, Obi said that one major problem he would tackle was the issue of subsidy, which he described as “organized crime.”
