Ten months to the general elections, Nigerian Economic Summit Group has said that Nigeria is at a crossroads over the quality of politicians presented to the electorate.

NESG  Chairman, Mr. Asue Ighodalo, while speaking  at the National Economic Dialogue on, “Critical Challenges Confronting the Nigerian Economy”  in Abuja, at the weekend, said the group is concerned about the quality of politicians jostling for leadership positions in the country. 

He said,  “We are at a significant crossroad. This is a moment in our national history where we need political leaders to emerge who think globally and act locally to tackle seemingly intractable development problems.

  “The emergence of such enlightened leadership-credible, competent, courageous reform-minded, and able to rebuild the institutions of governance-is what Nigerians desperately need now.”
