Vice-Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Peter Obi, has described the problem with Nigerian was more due to inefficiency in programme implementation rather than policy formulation. Obi said this during a live interview on Channels TV on Tuesday.
“This APC government has for long formulated different, beautiful policies, but the problem is with implementation,” Obi said. “The Atiku government,” he continued, “would concentrate on project implementation to a measurable level Nigerians would see, feel and appreciate.”
On how many megawatts of power Atiku government would add, Obi, who insisted that four years was enough for meaningful improvement in the sector, said that there was a clear roadmap that would be discussed in details during longer programmes.
The former Anambra State Governor, who heavily criticised the present government for its lack of proper projects implementation and transparency, said that the quantum of money already said to have been borrowed did not match the projects that were actually executed.
He concluded that the problem is not with borrowing, but actually utilising the money borrowed for productive projects rather than in consumption and waste, as rampantly witnessed in Nigeria till today.
“To get Nigeria working again, the inefficiency, incompetence, and anti-people policies that have long characterised the APC-led government of Nigeria must be reversed,” he said.
