Nigerians must reject bad governance - National Rebirth

Nigerians must reject bad governance - National Rebirth

A group, the Na­tional Rebirth Group (NGR), has appealed to Nigeri­ans to take a firm stand against bad governance in the country which has resulted in the pres­ent pervasive hunger and poverty amidst plenty.
The group promised to provide a rallying point for Nigerians to agitate and fashion a way out of the present debacle” and warned that “the accumulation of governance deficits in the country could fundamentally threaten the survival of democ­racy.”
In a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday, at the end of a two-day National Organising Committee meeting of the NRG, at the Shehu Yar’Adua Centre, its In­terim National Chair­man, Comrade Salisu Mohammed, said that a tapestry of economic policy inconsistencies and gross maladminis­tration were the defin­ing features of the na­tion’s democracy.
“A cursory look at the political landscape of our country from the return to democracy in 1999 to date reveals a tapestry of perpetual political experimenta­tions, economic policy inconsistencies and a system of maladminis­tration characterised by bad governance.
There has been “en­demic kleptomania at all levels of government with no end in sight which are further ac­centuated by a creeping instability and climate of uncertainty.
“A large chunk of the population can no lon­ger afford to feed while school children in their thousands are dropping out of school due to the inability of parents to pay school fees.
“Employment, access to transportation, elec­tricity, and healthcare which are collectively responsible for human development are be­coming near-impossi­ble to ordinary citizens leading to the observ­able state of despair among Nigerians.”
