Abdusalami: Nigeria seems stuck politically

Former Military Head of State, Abdusalami Abubakar, has said it appears as if Nigeria has been stuck politically since 1960.

Abdusalami, who ruled Nigeria between 1998 and 1999, said this at the 19th Daily Trust Dialogue themed: “2023: The Politics, Economy and Security”.

The former military general said political experiments have refused to grow beyond the issue of security, economic growth and stability.

Abdusaalami said, “It  appears that Nigeria is stuck politically in the same place and our democratic experiment has refused to grow beyond this issues even after more than sixty years of national independence and self-governance.

“Whatever we do or we don’t do this election year will linger for a long time to come. This election year calls for statesmanship and patriotism.”

He called for restraint among all political leaders in words and deeds.
