Nigeria: Obi Calls for digital Revolution

The Vice Presidential candidate of the PDP, Mr. Peter Obi has said that only revolution will save Nigeria and launch her into the league of countries one could say as towing the paths of development. Obi made this remarks yesterday while speaking at Baze University, Abuja.

Obi who spoke on the “The Role of Young Nigerians in the Development of Sub-Saharan Africa”, said that young Nigerians must be made to understand that nations that were doing well today went through revolution and that that was what Nigeria needed to drive development within the sub Saharan Africa.

Explaining the nature of the revolution, Obi said it was not the old type of revolution understood in terms of guns and cudgels, but the type of revolution that saw digital camera displacing manual ones; electric cars threatening to displace fuel-driven cars; knowledge economy displacing baggage economy; industries displacing manual production, among others.

Obi who advised the youth to remain committed to positive ideals, reminded them that one of the problems of Nigeria is the celebration of impunity, whereby Nigerians clap and dance with those destroying the country because of their ability to part with stolen money.
