He stressed the need for good leadership in the country effective from next year.

Obi said: “We want to save this country from its present predicament, and that is why we have been going round the country. It is now the turn of Nigerians to take back their country from a few individuals.

“Next year’s election should not be based on ethnicity, it shouldn’t be on religion. We want govt that is responsible, and we are exactly going to do that.”
