Nigeria needs action not politics — Bode George to Tinubu

Nigeria needs action not politics — Bode George to Tinubu

A former PDP National Deputy Chairman, Chief Bode George has stated that Nigeria needs action and not politics.

He urged President Bola Tinubu to communicate the true state of affairs in the country to Nigerians.

He stated this during his address to the nation titled “My Thoughts on The State of Our Country in the Last 25 Years: A Time to Chart A New Direction” in Lagos.

According to him, this is not the time to play party or regional politics. 

“Nigerians have suffered enough and they want fast results. This is the time for Tinubu to rejig his economic team. There are many Nigerians from the North to the South who can offer him economic advice that can turn this country around,” he said.

Chief George stated that Nigeria could only regain its rightful place in the comity of nations through the collective determination of leaders and followers.

“We can achieve this if we start to redefine our value system, to rejig and restructure the various anomalies that presently hinder the greater possibilities of the Nigerian union,” he noted.

He also pointed out that successive leaders had failed to grapple with the challenges of nation-building, adding that the country was currently facing an existential crisis.

“The excessive centrality of political power holds everyone down to an unhealthy indolence, strips the states of individual growth and development disallows free-willing local initiatives, strangles fairness and equity in the larger Nigerian union, inflames tension and fissiparous tendencies.”

The PDP chieftain however argued that it is unfair to attribute all the challenges facing the country to President Bola Tinubu’s administration.

He further stated that a fair evaluation of the current administration's performance would require more time for the President to serve in office.
