Lagos-based Geologist, Chief Christopher Anyakorah, has identified electricity, agriculture, education and total restructuring as key to Nigeria’s survival and recovery of its ailing economy.
Anyakorah who spoke at his country home, Abagana in Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra State, during their annual new yam cultural fiesta, said lack of these chains of development are responsible for the current insecurity occasioned by economic downturn in the country.
The Okofia Abagana contended that the current insecurity of lives and properties is a fallout of economic hardship in the country, adding that once there is total restructuring tilted towards improved electricity, agriculture and education, the economy would rapidly grow by itself.
He specifically called on the government to give priority attention to electricity (power sector) as, according to him, “the restructuring should be total but the most important of all is power. Nigeria should go back to power as the key. Once we have power, we can survive through industrial revolution,” he argued.
On the new yam cultural festival, he urged Ndigbo to go back to massive agriculture as part of their culture because of its importance, thanking God for keeping them alive to celebrate and witness this year’s edition of the annual fiesta.
