Why FG Has Failed In It’s Fight Against Insecurity— Peter Obi Reveals

A presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and a former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has blamed the insecurity ravaging the country on the inability of the Federal Government to invest in the Nigerian youths.

Obi who said this on weekend during the unveiling and inauguration of ambassadors of one of his support movements: Nigeria Needs Peter Obi, NNPO, in Abuja stated that the FG has failed to provide an enabling environment for the youths who are the pioneers of economic growth in every country.

While stating that Federal government had poorly performed in revenue generation, the Ex-Governor noted that provision of electricity should not be seen as a favor to the Nigerian people, but a part of federal government’s responsibility to lift the economy.

His words: “The reality is that we are not doing the youths a favor, but we’re saving ourselves today. You hear of banditry everywhere in Nigeria. Those bandits are those we refused and failed to invest in yesterday. If we had invested in them, if we had given them a job, we would have reduced it.

“I am not saying that there won’t be crime but it would be reduced. Yes, people say most of them are foreigners, I agree. But if we had invested on our own, they wouldn’t allow foreigners to come in.

“So, we need to invest in the youths. Do you know why people retire when they are in their 60’s or when they are at 65? It is because they’re no longer as productive as they were in their youth. So, investing in the youths is investing in the engine of growth of your country. They are the ones that will produce the stability of the country. They are the ones who have the energy, the talent and everything to move on.

“Every company we are celebrating in the world today is built by the youths. People hardly build any company when they are old. Those who founded the biggest corporations in the world did it in their youth: the Amazons, the Apple, Facebook, Twitter, all these were founded by the youths and they are the ones driving everything. Youths in Nigeria lack the privilege.

“Again on power, you are not doing anybody a favor. You have to provide it because it helps the engine of your growth. Governments always complain that they don’t have enough revenue.

“They don’t say they have a debt problem but a revenue problem. They also say tax to GDP is low. All these are because they have people who are not working. Will they pay you tax from where? Are they going to tax unemployed people? Taxation is like a bank account. You first have to put in, then you take out. If they have invested in those youths, they will be productive, then you tax them.

“But because you did not invest in them, you can’t tax them. I can show you 20 countries what the youths have been able to do, empirical evidence to verify. So, that’s where we are. The country has collapsed. There is nothing again for them to share. Sharing has finished. What they have been sharing is your future because they are borrowing money and sharing it.”

Earlier, the national coordinator of NNPO, Dr Adeyinka Adetokunbo, drummed support for Peter Obi, stating that he is best among other presidential candidates.

Adetokunbo noted that for a governor to have exited office with over 70billion in the state’s account, bespeaks of a man with sincerity, and a hardcore manager of finances.

“Personally, I asked myself, could this man be real? Could it be truly possible that he left N75 billion for his successor? Did he truly save $156 million for the future of his state?

“You see, when someone stirs something pleasant in you, the tendency is to investigate further. I did…and confirmed that this soft-spoken man hadn’t exaggerated. In fact, he didn’t say all he did for that South Eastern state.

“From then, I started wishing for such an individual to become the president of this country. When he became the vice presidential candidate of PDP in the 2019 election, I believed we were getting closer. What followed that election is now history. But another tomorrow’s history beckons today.

“For his exquisite knowledge of how to solve our problems with practical analysis, for his humility in approach to all aspects of life, for his wisdom and honesty in approach to public life and his unbelievable transparency in calls to jettison our wrong ways that has been suffocating our nation and face reality of the tough times with us. For all these and many more, Nigeria Needs Peter Obi”, he stated.
