… As Adebayo Gives A Clue To Why He Joined 2023 Presidential Race

The frontline presidential aspirant of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, Prince Adewole Adebayo has given a clue to why Nigeria’s problems seem larger than they really are, explaining that his joining the 2023 presidential race “is to show the people that the problems may loom large, but the solutions are obvious.”

Prince Adebayo who spoke in an interview with The Sun Newspaper noted that it is “lack of discipline that makes the problems seem large.”

According to him, the problems of the Country are not hidden as “they are out there and they are shouting.”

He lamented that this is not the era of Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe or Chief Obafemi Awolowo who foresaw the problems Nigerians might have in the future and tried to warn the country about them.

He explained that “these are problems that even a child knows, that this country is insecure and getting worse by the day and that the governmental system we run and our state actors have become part of the insecurity of the Nigerian state and that there is looming poverty not just among the unemployed but also among employed professionals, that even the character of those in power is reflecting intellectual poverty; they are stealing the country blindly because they are afraid that the widespread poverty will catch-up with them”, he said.

“We no longer have the assurance that the President and Commander-in-Chief is the father of the nation.

“As divided as we were politically in the second republic, and despite that many people did not agree with the politics of Alhaji Shehu Shagari, remember we had to go to the Supreme Court to resolve the issue of what two-thirds of the 19 states is; despite these, nobody in the country doubted the fact that Shagari was head of state and that you could go to him and complain about issues and get a quick answer; no part of the country was alienated then, it is not the case today.”

Prince Adewole Adebayo who has been crisscrossing the country and consulting with the leaders and stakeholders in the country said, “I don’t want to focus on these problems because they are well articulated, I’m focusing on the solutions.

“My coming out to run for the presidency is to show the people that the problems may loom large, but the solutions are obvious. It is the lack of discipline that makes the problems seem large.

“It is like the case of a child who has malaria, he knows that his mother keeps the malaria medicine in the cabinet, but because the medicine is bitter, the child does not have the moral courage to take it.

“The Nigerian elite know the problems of the country, they also know the solutions to the problems – insecurity, poverty, disunity, injustice and others but they have refused to apply the medicine because it is bitter.

“Insecurity will not end until all those sharing dollars on top of it realise that it has to end because lives are being lost.

“Every incident of insecurity that occurs produces an excuse for someone to siphon money; they will not apply the medicine to solve insecurity in say three months when the cash out is in six months, that is why insecurity persists”, Prince Adewole Adebayo said.
