Nigerian Institutions Not Functional Enough To deliver On Goals At 56 – Tinubu
The National leader of All Progressives Congress Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has called for the reengineering of the nation’s institutions, saying they are not functional enough to deliver on the goals for which they were set up.
Tinubu in his 56 independence anniversary statement released by his media office yesterday said Nigeria’s current situation has been described as a necessary rite of passage for any nation desirous of greatness.
He said, “After 56 years of political independence, Nigeria is not where it should be even though it has witnessed appreciable progress. Nigeria’s political, social and economic foundations need to be reworked and strengthened.
“Our institutions are not functional enough to deliver on the goals for which they were set up. This independence anniversary therefore offers us another opportunity at reflections.
“But beyond that, it demands from us all the sacrifice needed for nation-building and re-commitment to the vision of our nationalists who saw the greatness in this country and worked to advance it. The times are tough no doubt. The reasons are not far-fetched.
