They Once Said That Nigeria Will Manufacture Aircraft Before 2023, Remain 5 Months-Shehu Sani
Shehu Sani has reminded Nigerians of the promise shared with Nigerians by the government that Nigeria will be among the nations in the world that will manufacture Aircraft before 2023. Shehu Sani said,
“They once said that Nigeria will manufacture Aircraft “before 2023”…remain five months.”
Government is a continuum. Wherever this government stop, it is the responsibility of the next government to continue from there. Several other things are happening to the country apart from the case of aircraft manufacturing mentioned by Shehu Sani. What about mounting foreign debts which are out of control? Obasanjo helped Nigeria to get debt relief in 2006. Today the country has been plunged Nigeria back into heavy debt pressure. Many Nigerians are getting embarrassed and tired of our obsessive borrowing habits.
What about the worsening insecurity situation? Is terrorist rehabilitation rather than punishing them for crimes against humanity a record to be proud of? How many terrorists have been made to pay for their crimes through a trial? The refusal to prosecute terrorists is an insult to the memory of our soldiers killed and thousands of civilian victims of Boko Haram terrorism.
Therefore, the major task in front of Nigerians in the coming elections is to select the best leaders among the candidates. People should shun partisan politics and elect the best that will resolve the problems militating against the country’s democracy.
