However, Peter Obi in his earlier interview on Arise tv, commented on the influence of religious leaders on the Nigerians polity. According to Peter Obi, in as much as he respects religious leaders, in some context especially politics, he disagrees with them. He explained that some religious leaders propagate that bad leadership is a product of “God’s will”. Peter Obi further argued that such understanding is one of the major reasons political leaders underperform and the system is manipulated.
