A Lawyer, Mr Chima Nnaji said Nigeria can be peaceful and better this new year if ‘doers’ in the governance of the country are shown the way out, to give ‘strategic thinkers’ the chance to drive government’s agenda .
He said he believes there will be some measure of peace in 2013 within the context of the civil population if the President keeps to his words of not increasing the price of fuel.
Making reference to the fuel subsidy protest in 2012, the Public Affairs Analyst described it as ‘Unnecessary meddlesomeness’ which gave rise to the agitations.
“Because there will not be any attempt to dabble into increase in price of petroleum products, perhaps there might be some level of quietness in the New year” he stated.
“The agitations that greeted 2012 arose as a result of unnecessary meddlesomeness with the single commodity that is the driver of all economic activities”.
He further said that if the environment is kept relatively peaceful then Nigerians will continue to go about their businesses of fending for themselves on a daily basis.
The public affairs analyst berated the political sector saying he does not foresee any change in the sector because Nigerian politicians only know about ‘taking from the table’ contrary to the objective of serving the people.
“I don’t see so much change, because the Nigerian politicians say they are professional politicians, and that is very dangerous because politics is about rendering services; that means you come to table with something, not take from the table”.
