Global Rule of Law Index: Obi Sends Compelling Message to Tinubu as Nigeria Sinks in Latest Ranking

In a compelling message to President Bola Tinubu’s government, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the 2023 elections, Mr. Peter Obi has decried the critical state of social injustice in Nigeria.

Highlighting the nation’s alarming rankings — 158th out of 190 countries globally and 120th out of 142 on the rule of law according to the 2023 Global Rule of Law Index by the World Justice Project — Obi’s statement comes as the world observes this year’s World Day of Social Justice.

Obi, who also served as the governor of Anambra State, articulated his concerns through a series of posts on X (formerly Twitter), drawing attention to the pronounced disunity among Nigerians, divided along tribal and religious lines.

He indicated a worrying report by the Africa Polling Institute, which places Nigeria’s social cohesion index at a low 39.6%, underscoring the deep-seated divisions contributing to the country’s social injustice issues.

According to the message, Obi calls for a day of reflection, particularly for leaders whose decisions significantly impact the nation. He underscores the essence of social justice, advocating for equal economic, political, and social rights and opportunities for all, regardless of societal status.
“This Day presents us the opportunity for sober reflections, especially we the leaders, whose actions and inactions have far-reaching impacts on the people we lead,” Obi stated.
