Waiting For Nigeria's 2019 Politicians

For the country to progress, the incoming political leaders will need to tackle the following areas...

Water supply should be a major priority concern for the government. During the 70s and 80’s, water was running freely in the cities unlike today. The “pure water” companies have been taken by a few citizens and government agencies have boreholes serving them. 

Electricity is poor.

It was estimated we needed 10,000 megawatts in the 70s to solve our energy needs. Today, we have 7,000 megawatts when the population has tripled! 

In the area of transport, railway was abandoned in the last 40 years in favour of roads which are not maintained. Luckily, the present government is emphasising the railways.

For progress to be achieved, the fight against corruption must be vigorously pursued so that looting of the treasury is prevented and stolen money is recovered.
