We need at least 10 years to save the country from what PDP caused – APC

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Petroleum Resources (Upstream), Senator Tayo Alasoadura, has disclosed that the All Progressives Congress, APC, would need at least 10 years to clean the rot left behind by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The Senator said the PDP sixteen years administration was filled with misrule and inanities.

Alasoadura, who represents Ondo Central at the Red Chamber, noted that the APC government led by President Mohammadu Buhari has been busy packing the wreckage done to the economy of the country by the past administration of PDP.

The lawmaker said there was no magic that can be done on the economy within four years, adding that a period of ten years will be needed to clean up the PDP rot.

According to him, with the efforts of President Buhari administration at taking the nation’s economy out of the woods, the storm will surely subside very soon.

Alasoadura said,” I always feel uncomfortable when I see graduates pounding the streets in search of the elusive white collar jobs. I think it is high time we changed our orientation, the way of thinking that has brought the Nation into this sorrowful situation.

“I am a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria today by the grace of God. But while growing up, I experienced poverty. Up till today, I can recognize its bitter taste. I know how it feels not to have money to meet certain financial obligations. That is why I always feel bad when I see people suffering.

” Let me tell you, the future of Nigeria’s economic security rests with how we prepare today’s youth. As the most populous country in Africa, there are huge opportunities for ICT. This, when harnessed, will provide job opportunities for our teeming youth, enhance the quality of their lives and increase government revenue.

“The world is changing and we must change with its that we are not left behind. ICT is now the in-thing with even Pakistan, a third world country exporting ICT programmes worth 2.9billion dollars annually. “
