Terrorisms, Conflicts, Major Impediments To Nigeria’s Development – Aregbesola

ngrAs Nigeria celebrates her 53rd Independence Anniversary, the Governor of the State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola described conflicts and terrorism as serious setbacks for the development of the country, and called to unite to overcome them.
Governor Rauf Aregbesola, has called terrorism and other criminal activities, including bad governance, a serious setback to the development of Nigeria. He said this in a message issued in Osogbo on Monday to commemorate the 53rd Independence anniversary of Nigeria.
“Our efforts at nation-building are being affronted by manifold crises of under-development – bad governance, poor planning, industrial collapse, decay of basic infrastructure, socio-economic backwardness, political instability, insecurity, widespread poverty, and terrorism, among many other woes,” Aregbesola said, expanding the list of problems.
However, he said, these setbacks “do not amount to any permanent incapacity” for the country to develop further; they are “necessary but temporary impediments along the path to progress,” Governor added.
