Former Anambra State Governor Peter Obi has called on Nigerians to continue speaking against the hardship they are currently facing under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking during a visit to Pope John II Major Seminary, he said great leaders listen to criticisms of genuine patriots and act on the basis of that.
Obi 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 thereby 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 sort of things help one to reflect in one’s quiet moment.
“Part of the problem those in authority face is that the vocal ones that enjoy one favour or the other from government are always dumb to the problems of the country.”
