The chairman of United Nigeria Airline and governorship candidate of Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) in the coming Anambra election, Dr Obiora Okonkwo has said accumulated failure of leaders and followers was the cause of insecurity in the country.
Okonkwo was at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, where he unveiled a 10-point agenda for the development of the state, while also calling for members of the university community to vote for him in the forthcoming governorship election.
The Russian trained Development Economist spoke on Wednesday, during a town hall meeting with members of the university community on the theme: ”State of the polity.”
Okonkwo said: “The security failures we are witnessing today are an accumulation of failures of government, about things that should have been done that have not been done.
“It could be leadership failure but the followers also have their blames, like their docility in participating in choosing the right leader like the period we are in now (Anambra election).
“I’m not happy with the situation of things in Nigeria and Anambra State today, but instead of joining the EndSARS protesters or carrying guns, I have decided to join elective position.”
He stated that for a very long while, Anambra’s growth has been retarded, saying it was the reason states like Lagos have transformed most slums in the state into highbrow areas, while the slums in Anambra in the early 90s have remained the same, while some have even grown worse.
“May I use this opportunity to unveil to us today my 10-point agenda. A leader is just a visioner, but the people who work to make his vision come true are not seen or heard. In Nigeria, our own academicians are people who government now see as unfortunate and who languish with poor salaries. If I become the governor, I will only be the vision bearer, but I will come to consult with people like you to draw from your knowledge.
