The Muslim Media Watch of Nigeria in its Diamond Anniversary Message to Nigerians lamented that the Nation lost several great opportunities in its 60 years of growth due to bad leadership.
The group also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to bequeath to the nation, a politically reformed system in all tiers of governments which will reduce the cost of governance, improved infrastructure including permanent fixing of the Nation’s refineries, uninterrupted electricity, uninterrupted water supply in the federation, agriculturally boosted economy, industrialization and massive employment for the youth.
In its Independence message issued yesterday, the group through its National Coordinator Mallam Ibrahim Abdullahi stated that unless the country gets its leadership right at all levels, the low level of development and socio-economic problems bedeviling the Nation would continue.
He blamed the operators in the Nigerian political space, stating that if they have true spirit of Nationalism, they must sacrifice for the Nation instead of waiting for the nation to serve them as it is norm presently.
The group noted that materialism, corruption and political godfatherism firmly-rooted in political domination of the people and their commonwealth of the Nation, have greatly eroded the power and control of the political elites by the masses.
The masses are now at the mercy of the political entrepreneurs – masquerading as our political leaders. MMWG called for true patriots who are ready to serve the Nation to come forward with the programmes which would retract the backward steps Nigeria has taken so far.
