Social Democratic Party (SDP) presidential candidate Prince Adebayo Adewole has condemned the notion that Nigeria’s problem is a lack of manpower, saying that what the country lacks is good, qualitative leadership that can draw on the talents and resources in the country for its development.
Prince Adewole said this on Thursday at a presidential parliament hosted by the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) in Kuru, Plateau State, further stating that the country is blessed with manpower in all fields of endeavors. humans.
“The country is overwhelmed with manpower; there is no shortage of labor.” What is wrong with Nigeria, or is the problem with the Nigerian leadership? There are many people who can do fantastically well if given the chance and opportunities. If I am elected, our party has more than 500 competent people who can be brought in to save the day. There is enough manpower.
“Another question is: when a leader is recruiting, what is his purpose? If he’s recruiting people to come in and help him cover up, then he’s not going to recruit independent-minded people. If he is recruiting people to help him recover his campaign fund, there will be no progress. Your reason must be correct and in line with the reality on the ground.
“On the rule of law, all I will say is that I will be under the law, not above the law, while the cost of governance in Nigeria is not an issue but the cost of corruption.”
“Equally, the subsidy is a fraud; nobody is consuming 7 million liters per day; many of these claims are false. If you find a ship that has never entered Nigeria in the last seven years and people say the ship is fueling, you will find people making these kinds of claims. If you remove the corruption, the cost will be reduced. And that is what we intend to do if we are elected.
He further mentioned that the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) policy on cashless transactions cannot produce the desired result, adding that previous governments had embarked on the currency exchange without much trouble and wondered why Nigerians are going through because of the current difficulties.
He asserted that his party’s manifesto is not optional but rather has a constitutional mandate that is contained in Chapter 2 of the Constitution, which is entitled “objectives and fundamental principles of State policy.”
Prince Adewole narrated that the SDP will ensure that his government, if elected, conforms to Chapter 2 of the Constitution, which also promotes social investment to promote and improve quality of life through the provision of social services.
Adewole lamented the deterioration of the country’s infrastructure and vowed to rejuvenate it and put it to proper use, further emphasizing the urgent need to move away from the past and present if we are to grow as a nation.
“It is as if our public institutions were weaker than before; efficiency no longer exists.” The bottom line is that everything we’ve built, including fantastic institutions like NIPSS and our universities, has been an apologetic defender of the status quo.
“The reason we haven’t reached the basic milestones is that we question and criticize those who want to change the status quo, and we also recruit people to join the status quo,” he said.
The presidential candidate advised voters to let their values be reflected in the way they vote on February 25 of this year and avoid any accusation that compromises them.
“This is your opportunity to form a government; let your vote be reflected in the way you vote.” It’s good that you have your PVC, but you have to have the common sense to know what the problems are on the ground. “So that you don’t use your PCV to jail yourself, you have to have an open mind; forget about your tribe, religion and other feelings,” he advised.
