Obi expressed disappointment at hearing officials, who were appointed to resolve these issues, claim that Nigerians are not alone in facing poverty and hunger.

He emphasized that true leadership involves providing direction, solutions, and reassurance during times of crisis.

In a post on his X account on Friday, the former governor of Anambra State stated that Nigeria needs a detailed plan to address its specific challenges.

Obi called on leaders to offer practical solutions rather than merely noting that other countries also face difficulties.

He argued that the nation requires a comprehensive strategy to deal with its particular problems, not general statements that undermine the Nigerian experience.

He wrote: “The problems facing Nigeria are well-known to all Nigerians.

“We are the poverty capital of the world, among the most insecure people on earth, among the hungriest, have poor education quality and the highest number of out-of-school children, high infant mortality, corruption, unemployment, the highest income gap between the poor and the rich, high corruption perception index, infrastructure and healthcare challenges, and more.

“It is disheartening to hear those in charge, who were hired to address our problems, make statements like ‘we are not the only ones struggling with poverty and hunger.’

“Instead of merely acknowledging that other countries face similar challenges, we need to hear a thorough plan of action to tackle our unique struggles.

“We require concrete solutions and a clear vision to address these issues, not comparisons that downplay our circumstances.

“I urge those in leadership positions to offer tangible solutions, not mere reminders that others face similar challenges.

“We need a comprehensive approach to tackle our specific challenges, not generalizations that dismiss our experiences. A true leader provides direction, guidance, solutions, and reassurance in times of crisis.

“This is the hallmark of visionary leadership and a trait of nations that are making progress and advancing their development. They don’t simply state the obvious but offer a roadmap for overcoming obstacles.

“Just like a pilot who doesn’t just announce turbulence, they assure passengers that they will do everything possible to ensure a safe journey.

“Only then can we begin to trust that our country is in capable hands, working towards a brighter future for all Nigerians.”
