1. I will make sure we have robust national Data base for every citizen to be captured. I will do this in order to enhance security architecture of the nation, so that when a crime is committed by individual or group of people, only their finger print will fixed them out.

2. The main hindrance to our national development is just that the country was designed to fail from inception. So restructuring is a sure bet for me. I will make sure that each state have control over their resources while few of what they make will be remitted to the coffer of the central government.

3. Our constitution have a lot of loop holes that give room to corruption. I will make sure the constitution is overhauled. Nigeria as a country will have a new constitution where their will be law that prescribed a severe punishement for law breakers, corrupt politicians and judges.

4. I will improve the education sector and health sector.

na so grin grin grin grin

Constitutional review and amendment with the following in place:

1. Reduction of statutory allocations to the executive.
2. Merging of most ministries.
3. Merging of states that have become economic burdens.
4. Decentralization of government.
5. Reduction of allocation to states. With autonomy means every state must generate at least 60 percent of its budget.
6. Ministerial heads and other appointments must come from a pool of the best brains, which will be tested via written exams, interviews, and submitted proposals.

Dividing the country so that every region will be on their own.
Re: If You Were The President Of Nigeria, How Would You Make Nigeria Better? by Sheriman(m): 11:53am On Jun 13
Na to divide the country ask if each region wanted to remain as One Nigeria or secceed..
NIGERIA can't be better if we are still together!!
This is how it will be for more years to come.

I know I can't be the president of Nigeria.

Number 1, I'm Igbo

Number 2, I'm Igbo.

Number 3, I'm Igbo.



No need day dreaming.

But if I become a dignitary tomorrow, I'd right for the secession of Biafra.


I'm tired of being a third class citizen of this Nigeria.

Security - Decentralise the Police, given the constitution makes provision for that. Establish a zero-tolerance policy in the Police Force and the Military. This approach is a strategy to eradicate the abuse of power by law enforcement on citizens. Push a bill that allows for a jury of citizens to serve as the balanced check that needed to keep the force accountable. This will reinforce the idea of a government by people in the our democracy.
Nysc - Mandatory 1 year military reserve service for all citizens. Eligible for enrollment by the age of 18 and must be completed by age 35.
Citizen database - for identification

Infrastructure - Leverage the service of the enlisted Nysc members in a Govenrment driven accelerated infrastructural development, obviously cooperation with experts. we'll create 3000 miles of roads and 1500 miles of rail line respectively every year. Increased infrastructural capacity will positively impact investments in logistics and transportation and industrilization.
I'll further deconstruct power distribution, will allow distributors to compete for customers without location restriction.

Education enormous investment in Public schools starting from Elementary all the way up to the University. We'll rennovate our schools, provide adequate supplies for the classrooms, build Federal public Libraries in every capital city.
Open up Federal Universities for international research purposes, sponsor research in Medicines, Science and Technology
Incentivize computer and information technology/science/engineering studies all across the country.

Tourism, allow ease of access for innovative ideas from local start-ups, international brands to launch their businesses. this will be another avenue for job creation creation through small businesses, and possible investment opportunities.

And finally use my execute powers to push for a decentralized federal government, and more independent states, a change to the constitution that will define clearly the rights of persons and institutions and firmly uphold those rights with the necessary checks and balance in place.


If truly you can do this I will vote you as a president

Guys. It's not about whether you mean we'll or not. Truth is, this country was never meant to be from the start. So the only way is not to divide it but to face the problem. A country as diverse like Nigeria in terms of religion and especially politics can only be made right through a selfless crazy visionary leader. I read about murtala and abacha, these two heads of states, much were done under them within a very short time, not because they were smart or visionary. But because they had this kind of autocratic attitude. You can't have a ship and put the decision to direct it in the hands of people that clean it or the cooks. You need a captain that is ready to make informed decisions whether brutal or not. A kind of president that don't fear opposition or 4 year term is what we need. A visionary to the core business is t at the same time not afraid of taking decision. I've not been to the core north, so I don't know how people there reason, but as far as I'm concerned, everyone from the southernmost part to kwara has an hustlers metatlity. So there's nothing wrong with the government investing like a thousand dollars in the hustle of everyone so far its not yahoo. This would improve the lives of everyone. And even give back to the government in form of taxes. Really. This is how China became great. We're just like China. Only that we are not united.
That's my thinking anyways

1. Decentralise the country to make the states autonomous and viable

2. there must be punishment for every law broken and reward for patriotism

3. life imprisoment for public office holders who embezzle, misappropriate, misplace public funds for personal interest

4. All projects that must be carried out must meet certain basic standards else, there will be consequences

5. No more medical tourism for public office holders except with personal wealth

6. ensure proper funding of the education and health sector

7. Any criminal act against the people or the country must be seen as terrorism and not switching the names to the point where we don't know who is who anymore.

8. Nepotism must be punished.

That's the problem...

Only the president can't change the country. His effort has to be complemented by that of the lawmakers, ministers etc.

It's likely going to take a while to get Nigeria working.

Exactly.... don't know why Nigerians are fond of only calling president. Governors are just as important....

Well, the first step will be to reduce the number of law makers breakers in the legislature.

Those guys are practically doing nothing to earn the billions they are being paid.

I will also champion massive sensitisation and re-orientation. Virtues like truth, honesty and contentment must be inculcated in the lives of the upcoming generations because this present generation is a lost cause.
How do you hope to achieve the last part?
Re: If You Were The President Of Nigeria, How Would You Make Nigeria Better? by GeoAfrikana(m): 11:58am On Jun 13
1- I'll ensure salary and pension security for all government workers and force all private sector companies to do same. This will reduce their urge for bribes and corrupt incomes.

2- I'll work on building the right environment for innovation and development. Many of our youths have brilliant ideas but the environment is unfavourable. Examples of these are good roads, electricity and industrial zones. Overtime, our local industry will kill foreign investors.

3- I'll pass bill to jail anyone who displays tribal or religious intolerance. There's so much of it in many parts of the country and unfortunately it's stunting our growth. Many people will reject a qualified candidate just because "he's too religious" according to their own subjective judgement.

4- I'll call on all religious centres to avoid preaching individual breakthroughs. They should only celebrate communal breakthroughs. How have you helped your community? Yes, now you're rich but how does your so-called success impact the society positively?

5- I'll give more funds to religious and security agencies. Call it cane and carrot, I call it sword and scripture. You must pick one; if the fear of God doesn't deter you from sins then the fear of sword will. And the sword isn't shakara.

More importantly, I'll scrap this democratic system and return us to monarchy. The sanest countries in the world practice monarchy.

Rather than lampooning every president who is inaugurated, if you were the president of the federation, how'd you make the country what you castigate against?

Let's discuss.

Create STRONG SYSTEMS and MORE STRONG SYSTEMS. Every other single thing will gal in place. Pretty fast and almost automatically.

Once built anybody who comes after can not fight an strong and established system that works for the good of the country and ALL.

Killing corruption by stripping it from the roots.

Have the National Assembly pass an amnesty bill for corrupt officials with a six months window.
When you try to fight corruption, it fights back and we've seen this many times. Why not give a six months window where
- corrupt officials can willingly drop all their corrupt proceeds without fear of prosecution
- they have to reveal the loopholes used to acquire such funds
- they reveal their co-conspirators
- will not participate directly or indirectly in future politics

Have the National Assembly pass an anti corruption bill that gives severe punishment for corrupt officials which kicks in after the previous bill has expired
At this stage, the EFCC and ICPC will be in control of a vast amount of info that would nab those that did not repent as well as actual evidence that can be used against them. Lack of enough evidence has been why EFCC lose most cases.

Make servicom a mystery man service that will be effective in turning the civil and public services into goal oriented services
Where every citizen's phone call complaint will get addressed within the space of a week and things will work in our society.

Centralize identification of everyone in the country

Do massive wealth empowerment programs targeted towards the youths

Not a rocket science;
1. stop borowing, reduce dept burden how?
#reduce recurrent expenditure through a major reform
#. increase VAT and PAYE tn 10%
2. Encourage startups massively
3. Revolutionalize agriculture to such an extent that Cotonue will not b attractive in terms of cost.
4. Bring a revolution in housing targeted at the middle class. Give at least 50-60% of middle class access to home ownership at no extra cost How?
#. Convert the monthly house rents as repayment sum while they are living in the house etc...

Re: If You Were The President Of Nigeria, How Would You Make Nigeria Better? by Ferdinandu(m): 12:01pm On Jun 13
First work towards total décentralisation of power from Abuja. Economic power of each state must lie solely on each state. We said we are a capitalist economy but we are practicing more of socialist and communist economy. Why should Zamfara state leave the solid minerals in its door step and be waiting for oil in Niger Delta, why should civil servant in Lagos state be expected to be earning same with that in Borno. Nigeria is stagnant because of oil that is the short of it. Our oil production is too small to sustain our massive population. We are not Saudi or UAE, they have small population compared to their oil production that is why it is easier for them to advance with oil economy.
To me this is the only way to boost our economy first before any other thing, Next is reducing the cost of Governance to less than 20% of it's current state. Some state that are not viable to sustain itself should be merged with others, I don't know what we are doing with bicameral Legislature.Quota system will be completely phased out in most area of our national life. Corruption will be made a capital offence, A strict control of importation of things we can manufacture locally, it is only in Nigeria that you grow yam but buys pounded in at 10 times the cost of raw yam
