Nigeria will not go down the drain we will proffer solution to it, “he said. ”Where we are today is not where we should be. The effect of the forex has a lot to do with small scale industries and that is where the bulk of Nigeria employment is.” ” Anybody can make mistakes but if people in the authority are not sensitive to the cry of the people, we would keep making more mistakes. My understanding is that it is never late to be right. If a decision is made and we discovered it is not right we should do an informed review,” he added. Oyedebo said there is no point pointing accusing fingers at others for the current problems in Nigeria because every individual has a role to play in helping the country recover its dignity. “The challenges have been with us for many years, it didn’t just happen now. Government should be sensitive on issue that affects everybody.” ” We have been fighting over the issue of power for many decades now. Government should have its priority. They should itemize the fundamentals that can move Nigeria forward and commit to it,” he said. On the lingering fuel problem he said: “Look at the present fuel problem. It used to be black market but now we have black stations and they have the right to sell at any price because they are private marketers but the government still needs to come out and take a decision on it. ” READ ALSO: Agbomhere vows to probe Oshiomole He advocated for a cost effective solution that will bring the country out of its present challenges.
