Obi stated this on Thursday in a statement on his official Twitter handle.
The former governor lamented the issues in Nigeria, saying they ought not to be bothering the country today.
“For many years, corruption has remained the leitmotif of leadership failure in Nigeria.
“Painfully, at a time Nigeria ought to have moved on with other countries, we are still fixated on power supply, functional healthcare delivery and other essential things that ought not to be bothering us today.
“We are also saddled with a gross imbalance in national appointments as if others are mere spectators in Nigeria. Added to this is a lack of future for our children.
“The President can do this convincingly by immediately seeking real balance in his appointments and by taking immediate actions against those that have become notorious for killing and maiming fellow Nigerians.
“Nigeria belongs to all of us, we cannot build by destroying, especially on matters that can still be solved through dialogue. Let Nigerians be encouraged to talk among themselves now.”
