Nigerian Presidential Candidate, Omoyele Sowore running under the mandate of the African Action Congress (AAC), has called out the current crop of leaders Nigeria has for being unable to process data fast enough.
Stating this during a Presidential Interactive Session on Sunday Night in Abuja, Sowore stated that data processing remains one of the deficiencies Nigeria battles with every day. Sowore says;
We must try and invest in our people. The problem in our country is that we have not placed our people in a position to produce. We will dualize all the roads in this country. That was what brought America to its present state. There is data everywhere but our analog leaders don’t know how to process data and that has been a challenge to the development of Nigeria. But my digital government will right the wrongs.
For 58 years now, some wicked political jackals took over the affairs of this nation. Today, we have a country where people are sad.
The debate featured five other candidates including Donald Duke of the Social Democratic Party (SDP); Kingsley Moghalu of the Young Progressive Party (YPP); Fela Durotoye of the Alliance for New Nigeria(ANN); Tope Fasua of the Abundant Nigeria Renewal Party(ANRP); and Sani Yabagi Yusuf of the Action Democratic Party (ADP). Incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari of the Action Peoples Congress (APC) & Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) were notably absent.
