They also want the government to reform prisons into national agricultural enterprises where prisoners should become automatic farmers.
News Agency of Nigeria
Some residents in the Badagry area of Lagos State have urged Sen. Bola Tinubu’s administration to focus more on infrastructures that would make Nigerians live a better life.
They advised in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Badagry on Monday.
Mr. Latif Rashidi, a Legal Practitioner, said Nigerians needed good roads to travel without hitches.
“The country has gotten to the stage where citizens should travel in comfort, not spending hours on the road for an hour’s journey,” he said.
He said the new administration should also focus on solid development of electricity to ensure 24-hour supply.
Rashidi added that this would allow businesses to develop.
” We need adequate security because without well planned security, no nation can also develop.
“Many children need free education. Any nation without education is as good as dead.
“Through education, our technology will be sound, there will be employment, private business entrepreneur will grow, citizens will be happy.
“Government should ensure cheap food supply. Any nation facing hunger is like a house help who is praying for freedom.
“Government needs to develop food preservation technology. With this, there will be food throughout the year.”
Rashidi also wanted the government to reform prisons into national agricultural enterprises where prisoners should become automatic farmers.
“They will be adequately taken care of. Farming will become their primary trade after which they may be taught secondary trades. With this, there will be serious agricultural competition,” he said.
He advised the new administration to create jobs for the youth.
According to him, Nigerian youths gradually lose value and jettison our culture. Our dress culture is off, and our social values are gradually sinking.
Mr. Abiodun Hundeyin, a retired Deputy Comptroller General of Immigration, said the new administration should open the borders to liberalize trade and complete the Badagry-Seme Expressway.
He said appointments should be based on competence to help move the nation forward.
“The exchange rate is very high. Tinubu’s administration needs to work very fast on that to restore the power of the Naira,” he said.
Mr. Fadahunsi Adefioye, Chief Magistrate, Badagry Chief Magistrates’ Court, urged the new administration to focus on better, improved security, education, and employment creation.
Mr. Emmanuel Essien, Director-General, Badagry, Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines, and Agriculture, urged the new administration to open all land borders for free trade.
Essien said the new government should inaugurate the construction of the Badagry Deep Sea Ports.
” Improvement in power supply to Badagry and other parts of the country will stimulate growth.”
