Peter Obi has expressed his disheartenment  over the donation of 25,000 tonnes of wheat to Nigeria by the Ukrainian government.

Ukraine government had last week announced the donation of 25,000 tonnes of wheat to Nigeria, a development which has stirred mixed reactions within Nigeria.

Mr. Peter Obi, While acknowledging Ukraine’s generosity, emphasized the underlying failures of Nigeria’s leadership in adequately addressing the needs of its citizens.

In a statement shared on his social media platform X,  Obi lamented the reliance of Nigeria, once considered economically confident and resource-rich, on foreign aid, particularly from a nation embroiled in conflict like Ukraine.

He underscored the urgent need for a reevaluation of national priorities and resource management, calling for a concerted effort to revitalize the country’s agricultural sector and address longstanding issues of insecurity.

Obi’s remarks shed light on the stark contrast between the two nations’ economic trajectories, pointing out Ukraine’s ability to sustain agricultural productivity despite the challenges posed by war. He highlighted Ukraine’s success in harnessing its arable land and exporting agricultural products, urging Nigeria to emulate such efforts to achieve self-sufficiency and economic prosperity.

The donation from Ukraine serves as a reminder of the critical role of sound political leadership in fostering development and improving the standard of living for citizens. Obi emphasized the need for decisive action to reverse Nigeria’s current trajectory and pave the way for a more productive and self-reliant future.
