2023: Lunatics Have Taken Over The Political Space – Obi


The Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi, has called on Nigerians to take back the country, positing that the political space has been taken over by those he termed ‘Lunatics’.

  Disclosing this on  Sunday in a conference organised by the Revival House of Glory International Church (RHOGIC), Abuja, Obi stated that, “Seventy per cent of those who are in politics today should not have any reason to be near there. I have said it before and I will say it again. Politics in Nigeria is a case where lunatics took over the asylum. They must be out.”  

He noted, “You must replace that asylum with people who are competent. This is the only country where the worst is leading; the best should lead. I have served there; I am a trader and I started gradually and entered into politics.”

 He maintained that, “How do you think about one person taking N80 billion? $200m? That is sickness. It is not greed. The person is greedy. Greed is taking one N1 billion which he is not entitled to but taking N80 billion is sickness. That is a simple truth. And that’s why I said mad people have taken over.”

  He noted that, “If we get more young people who have the competence and capacity to be there, they can start developing these things.”

Commenting on whether his party does not have the structure to challenge the two main parties – the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC), Obi claimed that, “It is about the people. The people have allowed some group of persons to hijack their country.”

He added that, “That is why I have said take back your country. It is not theirs. We can’t allow this gangsterism to continue.”
