A non-partisan group, Build A Nation (BAN) initiative, has said Nigerian leaders owe the entire country an apology for its lack of direction in running the federation.
Speaking during the group’s inaugural media event at the City Hall, Lagos Island at the weekend, the convener, Emmanuel Ehiemua, said since the problem of the country was caused by a greedy and selfish leadership class, “the people demand, as a first step in a process of reconciliation, unreserved apology from our leaders: past and present, military and civilian, for their failure to provide effective leadership and stewardship to Nigeria and Nigerians this far.
The apology will affirm the supremacy of the people over its leaders, which is the essence of democracy. It will restore confidence and trust between the people and their leaders and make it easier for leaders to mobilize people for the challenges ahead,” Ehiemua added. BAN is a new group which has come on fray to contribute to the growth and development of the Nigerian nation.
