As Nigeria continues to grapple with the hydra-headed monster of corruption, one cannot help but wonder what could have been if Peter Obi had been elected president. The former Anambra State governor and 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party was widely admired for his track record of prudence, transparency, and accountability.

Obi’s commitment to good governance and his unwavering stance against corruption resonated with many Nigerians who yearned for a better future. His presidential campaign was built on a promise to tackle corruption head-on, and his policy proposals aimed to address the root causes of this pervasive problem.

However, despite his impressive credentials and the enthusiasm of his supporters, Obi’s presidential bid was ultimately unsuccessful. Corruption, the very evil he sought to vanquish, played a significant role in his defeat. The entrenched interests of the corrupt elite, who fear accountability and transparency, worked tirelessly to undermine his campaign.

Today, as Nigeria continues to struggle with corruption’s devastating consequences, one cannot help but wonder what would have been if Peter Obi had been given the chance to lead. Would he have succeeded in taming the corruption beast? Would his presidency have marked a turning point in Nigeria’s fight against graft?

While we may never know the answers to these questions, one thing is certain: corruption remains a significant obstacle to Nigeria’s progress and development. Until we confront and defeat this monster, our country’s potential will remain unfulfilled.
