Former Head of State Ernest Shonekan on Friday said the Nigerian economy had prospects to be great.
Shonekan told newsmen in Lagos that what was required to drive the economy was unity and cooperation of all Nigerians
“This nation has a good prospect and should not be written off,’’ he said.
The former Head of Interim National Government stressed that for Nigeria to do well as a nation, every Nigerian must be involved.
“Finger pointing, accusation and buck-passing is not what Nigeria needs now but collective effort to make every area of this country work.
“Nigeria has come a long way as a nation, we must not allow it to sink because it does no one any good to see this country destroyed,’’ he said.
Shonekan advised Nigerians to ensure that “our young ones are directed a right.’’
Shonekan on Thursday received the honour of Diocesan Benevolent Partner from Lagos Mainland Diocese of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion.
