Nigeria shall overcome by Atiku Abubakar

Nigeria shall overcome by Atiku Abubakar

Nigeria is marking her 56th birthday at a time of turbulent economic crisis. This may cause some citizens of our country to feel that all hope is lost, that there is nothing worth celebrating. However, this current crisis is not a time for grief, regret or recrimination. It is an opportunity for all of us to roll up our sleeves and support the government in the arduous task of revitalizing the core elements of our national economy.

We are witnessing an increasing loss of foreign confidence in the ability of Nigerians to resolve the economic downturn. There has been a slowdown of badly needed foreign investment, which has decelerated economic development that is so essential to the well-being of the ordinary Nigerian. The average Nigerian is worried about the state of things and yearning for a vibrant economy within a peaceful and stable environment so that he/she can carry on with daily endeavours to make ends meet.

This time demands that we cut our coat according to our cloth, but more than anything else it demands that we lend a helping hand to one another and form a formidable coalition to push back the recession. We didn’t come to this state by our own choice. True, we might have made some mistakes in not being frugal at the time of surplus; it may also be true also that our policy makers kept on living in denial when this recession could have been nipped in the bud. But the mistake we must not make at the moment is to imagine that the antidote to this current crisis lies with any one man/woman or the government alone. We all must come together as patriots to fight back this ugly situation.

Despite our litany of problems and divergent agitations, I am confident and full of abiding faith that the Nigeria of today is faced with great opportunities, immediately and in the near future. We are making significant headway in our fight against the scourge of corruption. We are at the zenith of producing our own food and aggressively diversifying our economy. We are in the process of empowering our youths and adequately subsidizing our small business owners. We are ensuring massive harvesting and full utilization of all of our natural resources. These are lofty goals and great challenges, but I am confident that, together, we can accomplish them with ease. No problem is insurmountable if we embrace peace and eschew those views that divide us as a nation.

Governments, corporations and private businesses must do all they can to ensure that people keep their jobs. Despicable as this moment may be, it must call to task the creativity of our young people to innovate and create unique opportunities. We must fight back at this recession on our own terms. We must never allow it to defeat our creative prowess or set us back on terms that we are not prepared for.

Fifty-six years ago when our heroes negotiated our independence from colonial authorities, the immediate threat before us as a budding country was how to establish a political order that would be enduring and serve the needs of our people. Several years down the line and in spite of the very many upsets along the way, we have been able to establish a democratic political order that has made our governments predictably periodic and more accountable.

I have spent a lifetime fighting for our citizens inside and outside the government, and I stand on this day of pride to assure all Nigerians that we shall all face the challenges together. This I know is not a job for one man/woman but a job for all of us.

I stand with our President in his quest to right the turbulent ship of Nigeria. I call on all Nigerians to join hands and unite behind the common goal of making Nigeria a great nation in our lifetime.

My belief in Nigeria is unflinching and my optimism is boundless. We must get our country on the right path to greatness. Failure is not an option!

Right now, the challenge before us is to create an enduring economic order that will not only accommodate and reward the entrepreneurial instinct of Nigerians, but one that will guarantee prosperity for us all.

And this moment, as ugly and despicable as it may seem, is our best take off opportunity for a long marathon to a new and brighter economic dawn.

    I Senior Prophet Enoch see your tomorrow Alahji u are going to be the nest president in Nigeria at what next in Nigeria sir, I do not know how to get the chance of telling you the massage , from Ode Irele local gov area of Ondo State. Nigeria 08091172619 07051126400

  • Your Excellency Sir, We JWealth Media/Blog Team are following your trends and we are pleased to inform you Sir, that we are in full support to your career and ambition of becoming the unquestionable next President of The Federal Republic of Nigeria.

    It is dishearten to have found our dear nation Nigeria in this economic paralleltic state that have turned us into a laughingstock and small nationals whose sizes are not up to some of the states in Nigeria, now sees our meaningless nation filled with incapacitated people. I bitterly said this is not good for us as a people whose greatness was once classified as The Giant of Africa.

    That is why we need you and your experiences both in business, politics and public services. We share your believe as it is articulated in this manner:
    “My belief in Nigeria is unflinching and my optimism is boundless. We must get our country on the right path to greatness. Failure is not an option!

    Right now, the challenge before us is to create an enduring economic order that will not only accommodate and reward the entrepreneurial instinct of Nigerians, but one that will guarantee prosperity for us all.

    And this moment, as ugly and despicable as it may seem, is our best take off opportunity for a long marathon to a new and brighter economic dawn.

    JWealth Media is please to suggest to you Sir, a slogan for 2019 “Come save one, come save all.” Come save one as a dying nation and come save all as a suffering people. This we believe, coming out from a person of your caliber who is highly respected coupled with much pedigrees, will not only stir the APC led governments’ slogan ‘Change’ which the Nigerian people has now replaced with ‘chain’ but, also banish it into the evil-forest to be killed and eaten by the evils therein.

    Sir, we pledge to positively publish and promote every piece of your works and your goodwill to the people of Nigeria from the urban to the rural areas so as to prepare them for 2019 as you are UNSTOPPABLE.
    We give your Excellency the mandate to “…save one, save all.”

    Thank you sir for looking into our suggestion as we look forward having you bestowed as the No 1 Citizen of our dear nation Nigeria and Villa is your haven.

    Yours faithfully,
    For: JWealth Media/Blog

    John Wealth Snr.
    CEO JWealth Media/Blog.

    This is very reassuring. The current state of affairs in our country’s economy though looks bleak to the ordinary eye, has great potential to awaken the entrepreneur in every one of us. The recession has since given way to massive movement of young Nigerians into agriculture. The tales are already abound of great harvests and young farmers are already smiling to the banks.
    I know that what we need now is a bold move towards fiscal federalism to stem the tide of massive agitations for resource control. Only ONE NIGERIAN so far has been bold enough to even mention the word RESTRUCTURING in the their discuss of the National question.

    I and a group of friends have started a campaign of calling in #TheCalvary, #TheNigerianCalvary.

    #TheCalvary , though more often than not, is a term used in relation to military warfare, and describes a “mobile” unit of an army whose mobility and versatility help win a military campaign, has been adopted by our group due to the peculiar situation of the challenges our country faces.

    I would like you guys to publish that Roadmap or BluePrint the Turaki and Zege Mule U Tiv proposed in the buildup to the 2015 elections whilst he was still a contender. Indeed, therein exists a whole range of bold steps towards dealing with Nigeria’s unique challenges.

    For me and my people though, we know what lies ahead should we not address the National question… This is why we say call in #TheCalvary, call in #TheNigerianCalvary.

  • Tom Akor says

    #Restructure234, #RestructureNG so as to #MaximizeNG and her huge potential. Call in #TheNigerianCalvary.
