The former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has joined other men of goodwill to wish Nigerians a productive 2017.
In his new year message sent to media houses, Obi said as a realist and going by socio-economic indices all over the world, that 2017 would be challenging globally, but he prayed that God would continue to be with Nigerian leaders at all levels and grant them the wisdom to take right decisions that would let the country remain focused even when facing the vicissitudes of the time, especially the current recession.
Obi appealed to those in authority to see the challenges nations are facing as an opportunity to approach governance from entirely different perspectives, which, according to him, should include drastic cut in the cost of governance to save money for infrastructural development.
Obi also called on Nigerian to show more patriotism by resolving to be part of the project of building a better country for the children of the country.
Above all, he concludes “Let us remember Nigeria and our leaders in prayers always.”
