Hon. Ononuju John Terence, 2019 Federal House of Representatives’ Candidate for Mbaitoli/Ikeduru Federal Constituency of Imo State, has this direct message for the Nigerian Government and Nigerians.
It reads ‘Generally, the Nigerian Government, Media houses, Firms & visionary Nigerian citizens have over the years, contributed towards the development of Nigeria.But more effort is needed for the actualization of the country’s over 50% development, which is expected to usher her to a round table of global development.
The popular English saying “To whom much is given, much is expected” should not be swept under the carpets, as Nigeria our great country, which is respected globally as the giant of Africa, has all the resources to take her to the next level of development like the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain, Japan and other developed countries of the world.
There is no doubt that our great country Nigeria is gradually experiencing development which is expected to fully manifest by the year 2050, only if we can collectively play great roles in fighting corruption which is the major factor hindering the country’s rapid development.
We should consider our roles in fighting corruption and promoting development, as a sacrifice to our beloved country Nigeria, as the citizens of the developed countries of the world considered, which is today a blessing to their generation.
This is not the time to blame the Nigerian government for not getting it right.But the time to work hand in glove with the government 24 hours in promoting our country’s development.
As citizens that want the best in development for our great country Nigeria, we should start these developmental processes from our various communities to the best of our abilities, while the ones we cannot handle, should be channeled to the Nigerian government for the actualization of the country’s development.
The government as the key player, should embark on more developmental projects which include; the establishment of more industries, skills acquisition centers, research institutes & Information Technology centers in the 36 states of the Federation including Abuja.In addition, the provision of quality healthcare services, good drinking water, good roads network and many more developmental projects.
These developmental projects, should be handled by God’s fearing Contractors that have the interest of the Nigerian citizens and Nigerian development at heart.
On the other hand, there are so many visionary young Nigerians who are struggling to contribute their quota to the development of Nigeria.Unfortunately, they have little or no resources with which to bring their vision to limelight.These individuals are agents of Nigerian development.
The Nigerian government, media houses, firms and Philanthropists also have a very great role to play in the lives of these visionary young Nigerians, who are the future of Nigerian development.
When we put all the necessary factors in place towards achieving development for our great country Nigeria, we will forever be remembered as the outstanding ‘Agents of Nigerian development’.May God bless our beloved Country Nigeria’ Hon. Ononuju concluded.
