A Nigerian political icon and economic analyst, Engr. Yakubu Mohammed Kingsley (YMK), has advised the nation to make its pillars dependent on discipline, dependability, sustainability, and transparency, in order to tackle corruption.
Kingsley made this known in his New Year message.
According to him, the Nigerian dream can become reality if a leader who is passionate enough to face all odds is elected.
He said if Nigeria and its citizens adopt a culture of professionalism and a code of conduct that values accountability and openness, the fight against corruption can be won permanently.
“The future of Nigeria lies in our hands and whatever we do, we must be conscious of posterity”, he said.
On Nigerians’ attitude toward political players, he said, “This to say it is high time Nigerians Stop sneering contemptuous remarks against Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Peter Obi, Atiku Abubakar, and others. We should shy away from the politics of bitterness and let us promote love, peace, and unity. All the Presidential candidates deserve respect for coming out to showcase what they have for Nigeria and not to be humiliated with words”
