Nigerian economist and philanthropist, Tony Elumelu has commented on the current state of the country. 

He recounted how he listened to his colleagues at the office bemoan the pressing issues they face in the country which include no electricity for 5 days, hikes in the price of diesel, frightening food inflation, and many others. 

Outlining the need to be vocal about the forthcoming 2023 general election, Elumelu wondered why a country that is so rich in natural resources, has 90% of its citizens living in hardship and poverty. 

Insisting that evil prevails when people are silent, the economist added that in 2023, Nigeria must be on a strong trajectory for progress and development.

Elumelu who pointed out that oil-producing countries are smiling as their foreign reserves are currently rising, stated that we need to hold our leaders accountable.
