Gbenga Daniel, a former governor of Ogun state, explained that the only way Nigerians can leave the trenches of poverty and underdevelopment is by electing visionary and realistic leaders into power. ayokinews.com reports
The statesman stated that the only way Nigeria can become great is when the people become intentional in development and electing realistic leaders.
Gbenga made this known while speaking at the fourth edition of the annual lecture organised by Freedom Online Newspaper in Lagos on Tuesday.
“The only way we can leave the trenches is by putting into power individuals who are realists, not just PowerPoint presentations and well-written manifestos that end up in the dustbin of history,” he said.
“We need leadership that has an automatic balance with talking and showing work.”
“Anybody can rant and make promises, but we have to be intentional to ensure that we let those who know how to bring to life these visions.”
