“We Need At Least 10 Years To Save The Country From What PDP Caused” – APC


The Chairman, Senate Committee on Petroleum Resources (Upstream),
Senator Tayo Alasoadura, has disclosed that the All Progressives
Congress, APC, would need at least 10 years to clean the rot left behind
by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The Senator said the PDP sixteen years administration was filled with misrule and inanities.

Alasoadura, who represents Ondo Central at the Red Chamber, noted that
the APC government led by President Mohammadu Buhari has been busy
packing the wreckage done to the economy of the
country by the past
administration of PDP.

The lawmaker said there was no magic that
can be done on the economy within four years, adding that a period of
ten years will be needed to clean up the PDP rot.

According to
him, with the efforts of President Buhari administration at taking the
nation’s economy out of the woods, the storm will surely subside very

Alasoadura said,” I always feel uncomfortable when I see
graduates pounding the streets in search of the elusive white collar
jobs. I think it is high time we changed our orientation, the way of
thinking that has brought the Nation into this sorrowful situation.

“I am a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria today by the grace
of God. But while growing up, I experienced poverty. Up till today, I
can recognize its bitter taste. I know how it feels not to have money to
meet certain financial obligations. That is why I always feel bad when I
see people suffering.

” Let me tell you, the future of
Nigeria’s economic security rests with how we prepare today’s youth. As
the the most populous country in Africa, there are huge opportunities
for ICT. This, when harnessed, will provide job opportunities for our
teeming youth, enhance the quality of their lives and increase
government revenue.

“The world is changing and we must change
with its that we are not left behind. ICT is now the in-thing with even
Pakistan, a third world country exporting ICT programmes worth
2.9billion dollars annually. “
