Former Minister of State for Education, Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari administration to focus its energies on restoring security in the country and diversifying the economy.
The ex-minister, who made this call in a statement at the weekend to commemorate the Democracy Day celebration, extolled the late Chief M.K.O. Abiola as a symbol of unity and democracy in Nigeria.
“The late Abiola was an employer of labour. He worked so hard from scratch to become a wealthy businessman with several investments in different sectors of the economy.

“The lesson Nigerians must take away from his life is to strive to unite and see themselves as one and their brother’s keeper,” Gbagi said.
He tasked the Federal Government on the need to address the spate of insecurity in several states and undertake timely diversification of the nation’s economy through the proper application of the $5.513 billion loan request approved by the National Assembly.
“The federal and state governments have a huge task of building a nation that is currently lacking on some fronts. Adequate personnel and resources must be deployed if the country hopes to record successes against the spate of insurgency, banditry, and kidnapping across the country.
“On the development of the economy, the federal and state governments should begin to look inward by partnering successful private investors towards changing the nation’s economic fortunes,” Gbagi said.
