An All Progressives Congress chieftain, Dr Olusegun Osinkolu said that he expects Nigeria’s president to turn the nation into what it was in the 50s and 60s which all African nations looked up to.
The Patron of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu Vanguard, in an interview with The Nation, stressed that Nigeria as of then was the giant that provided shelter for the continent.
He opined that the citizens had faith in their leaders and youths were made to be productive.
He noted that to make the nation take its place as it was before, the government should not allow youth to waste away due to a lack of jobs.
He added that the nation should make fuel and food affordable to the people.
According to him, “My expectations are not different from that of other Nigerians, which are for them to deliver democracy dividends to the people, and to also bring a paradigm shift to governance and make it one that can bring prosperity.
“We can’t afford to be moving through a cycle of suffering and vicious poverty. They must break away from the past by shunning corruption, and tackle the cankerworm of insecurity, banditry and kidnapping.
“They must usher in a new Nigeria where things work perfectly like in the 50s and 60s when the African continent was looking up to Nigeria as the giant that would provide shelter and set the pace of development for them. They must make Nigeria a place where local oil refineries can work without sabotage; a Nigeria where we can trust our leaders and make our youths productive, rather than allowing them to waste away due to pervasive unemployment. They must give us a Nigeria where fuel and food prices will be affordable to all Nigerians; a new Nigeria where we can all sleep with our two eyes closed. The new cabinet members would be the most watched and most monitored Federal Executive Council in Nigeria’s history. They have to be circumspect of what history will say about them by working hard in synergy to make Nigerians happy.”
