Edo State Acting Governor, Rt. Hon. Comrade Philip Shaibu, has charged Nigerians to ensure that the forthcoming 2023 general elections produces only credible and competent leaders.
Shaibu gave the charge during the 17th convocation ceremony of Benson Idahosa University (BIU), in Benin City, Edo State.
The acting governor, who was a special guest of honour at the convocation ceremony, said that only competent leaders can help the nation overcome its many socio-economic challenges. He therefore called on citizens to pray for the country.
He said, “Let’s pray for a greater Nigeria of our dreams. We must also pray for the coming election. As a government, we will do our best to make life better for our people.”
“We have not been lucky with leaders but must pray and do the needful to get competent leaders with the fear of God to move the nation forward” he said.
