The future of Nigeria, the coming ten years of the most populous black Nation has been predicted by the former governor of Benue State and a Senator representing Benue north- east, Senator Gabriel Suswam.
The ex- governor disclosed that it ” is doubtful whether the country will exist in 10 years, ” stressing that the political leaders in Nigeria need to change the current economic problems facing the country, else it may not witness 2030 as a united nation.
Suswam made this known while speaking at a book lunch in Abuja on Saturday, stated that times are difficult in Nigeria due to security and economic issues.
He said, ” Times are becoming more difficult for Nigerians. While it is not clear when Nigerians will exit the current challenges, it is doubtful whether the country will exist in 10 years if the right thing is not done.
” Times are difficult. We have a lot of security issues. We have a lot of economic issues. These are issues that led pragmatic leaders such as Dankwambo to come in so that we’ ll be able to get out of the woods. Where we are now is a very bad situation. ”
He added that nobody knows maybe Nigeria will eventually get out of the current bad situation, or the country needs another change.
He continued, ” We don’ t know when we are going to get out of it, maybe until a new change changes the change. We have found ourselves in a situation where we need the necessary change from where we are today to another one. ”
Also, he added that Nigerian political leaders need to mentor the younger ones, stressed that if this is not done, we may not have a country together in the next 10 years.
” Mentoring is what political leaders should do to the younger ones. Nigeria is drifting and drifting very fast. If we don’ t properly mentor the younger ones, of course, in the next 10 years, one wonders whether we will still have a country together. So, mentoring is a subject and a topic that is very important in politics, ” he added.
