Nigerian Institutions not functional enough – Tinubu

1 Min Read

The National leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has said that the lack of functional institutions has denied the country the progress it deserved.

In his Independence Anniversary statement released through his media office yesterday, Tinubu stated that the country’s institutions must function effectively to achieve the objectives for which they were set up for.

He said, “After 56 years of political independence, Nigeria is not where it should be even though it has witnessed appreciable progress. Nigeria’s political, social and economic foundations need to be reworked and strengthened.

“Our institutions are not functional enough to deliver on the goals for which they were set up.

“This independence anniversary therefore offers us another opportunity at reflections.

“But beyond that, it demands from us all the sacrifice needed for nation-building and re-commitment to the vision of our nationalists who saw the greatness in this country and worked to advance it.

“The times are tough no doubt. The reasons are not far-fetched,” he concluded.
