The Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate in the 2023 general election, Peter Obi, has tasked Nigerian political leaders to learn a lesson from the recent Kenyan experience.

Obi made this call on Sunday via his official X handle while reacting to the recent rally against proposed tax hikes by Kenyan citizens.

He lamented that Nigerian political leaders use public funds to pay media thugs to insult and abuse those who speak truth to power.

He challenged Nigerian leaders to refrain from such habits and start making sacrifices for the greater good of the suffering masses

“We, the Nigerian political leaders, should take a strong lesson from the recent Kenyan experience. When the Kenyan public realized that their government was not making sufficient sacrifices and prioritizing resources effectively, they spoke out, demanded change,

“We resort to using public funds to pay media thugs to insult and abuse those who speak truth to power.

“True change and progress will require leaders who are sincere, willing to listen, act responsibly, and prioritize the welfare of the people over personal or political interests. If we make the necessary changes and make the needed sacrifices, a new Nigeria is possible,” he said.
