Former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has advised Nigerians to continue talking about the problems being faced under the present administration.
Obi dispelled the belief that leaders viewed criticism as subversive to Government, saying, on the contrary, that great leaders listen to criticisms from genuine patriots and act on the basis of that.
According to him, those in power might be shielded by their aides from knowing the true position of things in the country; hence the reason for consistency in criticism.
Obi said this on Wednesday when he paid a visit to Pope John 11 Major Seminary Okpuno Anambra State.
He said, “as the Governor and even now, I listen to what people say because no person is perfect even though some talk out of other reasons, standing truth on its head. But there are genuine critics who speak out of love for the country. When such people talk, as humans one might get annoyed but I assure you that those sorts of things help one to reflect in one’s quite moment.”
