PDP Presidential Primary: The Outcome that will inspire a new Nigeria
By Abel Udoekene
In many places we’ve visited there is a crying need for development, from the South to the North, Nigerians are currently demanding a change in the status quo. The condition is very critical because the scars of unemployment have eaten deep into our fabrics that it threatens our collective existence as a nation.
“How do you expect me to make a living?” has becomes a chorus among many Nigerian youths who are not asking for nothing more than a job to earn a decent living.
How do we get here? is a big question and it’s very sad that after 58 years of existence as an Independent nation, we cannot feed nor provide for ourselves, yet we have seen leaders upon leaders with mouth-watering promises during campaigns but nothing to show for it when they enter office.
In 58 years, we have successfully empowered poverty, introduce diseases, create unemployment and degenerate hope to its lowest level because we care less about the fundamental issues that threaten our collective existence as a nation
Nigeria is one of the richest countries in the world but unfortunately, a number of barriers make it difficult for business to thrive, and if businesses cannot thrive unemployment and poverty will surely strive.
As a Nigerian, I believe we must first identify our priorities, define, and implement them. The People Democratic Party (PDP) as the number one opposition party in Nigeria must look beyond personal selfish interest and elect a candidate who has the desire and the pedigree to restructure our economy and position Nigeria for greatness.
They should produce a candidate who has a plan that can inspire Nigerian youths, strengthen Nigerian women and promote unity across the nation.
Nigerians expect them to show us unity after the primaries, anything short of that will be unacceptable.
