LET’S GET NIGERIA WORKING AGAIN
The last three and a half years have been the most daunting for us as a people. Almost all indices on socio economic and political development have plummeted throwing over 70% of Nigerians into unprecedented poverty, the like never seen before since our corporate existence as a nation. Indeed, the last three and a half years have especially witnessed a deterioration of all aspects of basic human capital development as reflected in the growing rates of poverty, unemployment, economic instability, increasing debt burden and increased insecurity. It has therefore become evident that those entrusted with the task of improving the lives of Nigerians are clearly not up to the task. And it is a serious task indeed!
Now that elections are upon us, Nigerians will once again have the opportunity to assess the quality of those they wish to place in charge of governance in order to bring about the desired change to the dwindling fortunes of the country which has so much promise but has not been able to fully harness the potentials of the nation to deliver the benefits of democracy to most Nigerians.
The next four years will determine our future in the global space, whether we can regain our leadership role in world affairs, reverse the economic meltdown, reinstate a sense of belonging for everyone, regain our peoples’ trust to protect their lives and property, and ensure sustained prosperity.
