'We Must Change Our Ways'


If we don’t change our ways, our future as a state and country is doomed, says  Olugbenga Banjoko, an aspirant who intends to contest for a seat to represent the  East District of Ogun State in the upper chamber of the National Assembly under the  Action Congress of Nigeria.

Speaking with P.M.NEWS recently in Lagos, the aspirant said the biggest problem in  the country today is poverty, because many Nigerians lack basic human needs that  include clean water, nutrition, education, healthcare, electricity and affordable  housing among others. He described the ACN as the party to beat in Ogun in the next  elections, promising to bring the dividends of democracy to the doorsteps of the  electorate if elected. He added that corruption is the major factor contributing to  poverty in the country.

“Is this the future? Nigeria is 50 years behind in technological know how. Our  infrastructures are old and lack of maintenance, our health system needs to be  updated, we have serious environmental issues, just like we lack a defined foreign  policy,” he stated, adding that, “this is the time to come together to resolve the  problems our nation is facing.”
