Attitudinal Change, A Panacea To Aid Nigeria’s Development – Akande
Nigerians especially political leaders have been challenged to have a rethink and attitudinal change, as it is the only pivot to reaching the country’s development quest.
The attitudinal change, according to elder statesman and founding Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bisi Akande, is holistically needed to put the country on a right path.
Akande stated this at the 97th birthday lecture of a foremost nationalist and elder statesman, Pa.Reuben Fasoranti.
The former governor of Osun State is of the opinion that if Nigerians can cultivate the habit of promoting local production against importation, discipline and probity in governance, the yearnings and aspirations of over 200m population would be met.
He decried the ailing state of the nation’s economy, stressing that encouraging production and consumption of locally made products, commodities and ideas will set the country’s path for sustained growth and development.
Akande said Nigeria is a desirous of a leadership with the right blueprint to tackle the nation’s challenges while encouraging transformational ideas to grow the economy.
The former APC Chairman is confident of the capacity of the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to deliver his renewed hope manifesto to the people.
He also lauded Pa. Fasoranti for upholding the virtues of discipline, integrity and unfettered service to humanity that his generation fully optimised in the development of the old Western region and by extension, the federation.
Akande challenged upcoming leaders to be prepared fully for governance and be ready to create templates that successive administrations can tap into for the continued growth of the state.
