High Chief Kehinde Kalejaiye

As we celebrate this year’s Independence, I am urging all our leaders in the three arms of government of the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary to do the needful and liberate Nigerians from the shackle of poverty, unemployment, insecurity and kidnapping, food inflation and scarcity.

Nigerian politicians are toying with the future of Nigerians. They enrich themselves at the expense of the needs and aspirations of other citizens.

Nigerians live in fear and uncertainty. Many Nigerians live in abject poverty in spite of the abundant resources nature bequeaths on the country.

Many people are poor in a rich country like Nigeria. Nigerian youths constituting the most active population, yet inactive to achieve their dreams and goals.

The government, with bad policies and mismanagement of the country’s resources, has successfully crippled the souls and minds of citizens of the country.

On this year’s Independence, I am appealing to the president, governors and other political leaders to liberate Nigerians from early death and give them true independence from poverty, homelessness and economic needs.

We want a better deal. We want employment for the teeming youth population. The government must create a platform that supports business growth. We want good transportation network and living wages for the employed population of the country.

We want an upgrade healthcare system and affordable housing. Importantly, the government should end banditry, kidnapping and terrorism as Nigerians live as slaves in their fatherland. One ethnic group cannot be slave to another. We are equal before God and the constitution.”
