Senator Shehu Sani has identified industry, agriculture and security as key areas that the new administration must direct its policies to bring back the economy from its knees.
He stated this while speaking as a keynote speaker at the third edition of Double Diamond Empowerment Initiative in Lagos recently.
Themed “Holistic approach towards nation’s rebirth”, the event sought to address leadership challenges in Africa and reward those who have distinguished themselves and impacted society in their various fields of endeavours.
He said, “The new administration in place must take bold and courageous decisions that should be in the interest of our country. And there are five issues that he should be serious about, by serious, I mean he should prioritise.
“The first is about our national unity. There is an urgent need to ensure that this country is reinforced, is restrengthen, because the spirit of our people is very low at this very time.
“Secondly, this government must take seriously the issue of national security. The next is the economy of this country. In the last eight years, we have had a government with no economic vision, no economic direction, and no interest in addressing the fundamental economic problems of this country. Now, decisions have to be taken, and there should be a timeline.”
