Tormer governor of Anambra State, in a statement on social media, said he chaired the Ethical Leadership Lecture organised by the Strategic Contacts, Ethics, and Publication (STRACEP) of the UNN.
In his remarks, Obi reiterated the need for Nigerian political leaders at all levels of government to live out the true qualities of integrity and uprightness. He said meaningful progress and development cannot be achieved when leaders have questionable and unverifiable pasts.
Obi emphasised that for a nation to grow and develop, it must be founded on ethical leadership and integrity. He called for a new political culture in which parties are run by people of integrity.
He also expressed concern about the deep-rooted corruption and electoral malpractices that continue to plague Nigeria. He urged Nigerians to demand ethical leadership at all levels of government.
