Why Nigerians Will Never Stop Suffering And Pains – Obasanjo

Published by admin on

Nigeria’s ex-president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has delivered a stark warning during an appearance at the public launch of Dr. Umar Ardo’s book “Court and Politics.”

In his address, Obasanjo highlighted the country’s ongoing challenges, attributing them largely to poor resource management and insufficient productivity amongst its citizens.

The former president stressed the need to decentralize power and resources, suggesting that devolving authority and funds from the Federal Government to state and local levels would help alleviate competition at the center.

At this event, which took place alongside Banbangida Aliyu, the former governor of Niger State, Obasanjo discussed how Nigeria produces approximately 1.7 million barrels of crude oil daily but loses nearly the same amount due to theft. While other nations producing around five times more oil can account for their output.

Professor Ango Abdullahi, a member of the Northern Elders Forum, used the occasion to support calls for a return to the parliamentary system of governance in Nigeria.
