As Nigeria marks her 60th Independence anniversary, leaders have been urged to improve the people’s standard of living through adequate investment in infrastructure.

This is coming from the Chancellor of Gregory University Uturu Prof Gregory Ibe.

Prof. Ibe while advising leaders at all levels of governance in Nigeria to prioritize what he called the patriotic act of delivering impactful dividends of democracy to the people maintained that provision of critical social infrastructure in Nigeria will stem the alarming rate of restiveness and agitations in the country.

Prof. Ibe who doubles as the chairman of Committee of Proprietors of Private Universities in Nigeria, while addressing journalists recently at his country home at Amaokwe Achara Uturu, added that a synergy exists between the country’s infrastructure deficit and the insecurity currently facing her.

“According to Prof Ibe, As we commemorate the 60th anniversary of the birth of our nation, I want to wish Nigeria our motherland a prosperous diamond independence anniversary. Let me however use the opportunity of the anniversary to charge our political leaders to recommit themselves to the task of addressing the huge infrastructural deficiency currently plaguing the nation as a means of reducing the escalating degree of restiveness” says a statement issued by Sleek Ogbonnaya Ogwo, DR, Media & Public Relations of the university.

He added, “Stressing that the level of infrastructural deployment directly impacts on the quality of life provided to the citizenry, he encouraged leaders to justify the number of years chronologically credited to Nigeria with equal amount of social amenities to assuage frail nerves. In his words, Benefitting from many years of consultancy to multinational agencies and personal interactions with leaders across the globe, I know that a development minded leadership automatically secures the peoples buy-in. Nigerian leaders should therefore work to secure public acceptance and willing participation in the act of governance through the delivery of impactful dividends of democracy.

“In conclusion, he asserted that given the enormous potentials of Nigeria, especially in the Human Resource sector and against the backdrop of the current deployment of technology and virtual platforms for knowledge transfer, the nation at sixty definitely has immense potentials going forward”.
