I don't know, but, can lamentation bring about the change we want in Nigeria? This is exactly the point President Goodluck is trying to point out.
President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday urged Nigerians to stop their lamentation over its poor standing among its contemporaries.
He said with the cooperation of all, his government could make significant change that could reposition Nigeria within four years.
Jonathan spoke shortly after swearing in the Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission, Mr. Ekpo Nta, and five new permanent secretaries at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Nta has been occupying the office in acting capacity since November 29, 2011. His swearing-in as the substantive chairman was based on his confirmation by the Senate on September 28, 2012.
The new permanent secretaries are Ambassador John Gana (Niger), Mr. John Jegede (Ekiti), Dr. James Ogbewu (Imo), Ambassador Sanni Bala (Katsina) and Dr. Folashade Yemi-Esan (Kogi).
The President admitted that Nigeria could do better as a nation than what is currently obtainable.
He said, “People talk about the 60s when Nigeria was on the same level with some countries. I think we should stop this lamentation.
“It does not take more than 10 years to change a nation from what others have done.
“Even within four years, we can make significant change to reposition Nigeria.” ...Source
