Nigerians cannot wait for the convenience of leaders in deciding what is essential- Attahiru Jega and Group

The Nigeria Worlikng Group On Peacekeeping and Governance (NWGPG), a group of Nigerian civic and thought leaders in a statement on Thursday said  Nigeria is on auto pilot.

The statement reads “The civil society actors noted that in the absence of a binding narrative, there are series of conspiracy theories that have emerged, with immense capacity to divide the country along the sharp lines of ethnicity and religion, which is further sustained by the absence of strategic communication between the Nigerian state and its citizens.

“This situation is further heightening the level of desperation among the citizens that are increasingly being detached from the everyday governance of the Nigerian State,” the peace building group said’’

 In their words, the group added ‘’ “Indeed, the presidency has adopted the strategy of responding to demands for an urgent and holistic review of the basic structures and governance processes of our nation with demeaning statements.

“This tendency to abuse those who legitimately ask those with the responsibility to listen to popular voices is alienating more Nigerians from the administration and playing into the hands of those who feed off desperation.

“The nation needs to adopt a sense of urgency in the way it deals with rapidly accumulating liabilities.

“Nigerians cannot wait for the convenience or pleasure of leaders in deciding what is essential.

“We must avoid the tendency to ignore our problems until they become a lot worse in terms of the capacities of leaders to deal with them. “We call on younger Nigerians, in particular, to get involved in the search for a future without current levels of bitterness and dislocations,” Their statement reads.

 They  therefore enjoy the Nigerian populace from individual to groups to build a platform that will address the polical structure and process that will champion or rebrand Nigerian Politics.
