2023: Nigeria’s Population is a Blessing – SDP Presidential Candidate, Adewole Adebayo

Prince Adewole Adebayo, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) Presidential Candidate in the 2023 general elections, described Nigeria's population as a huge blessing if properly invested in, saying it has the potential to boost the country's GDP per capita.

Prince Adewole Adebayo revealed this during a discussion with journalists about his plans for the country.

In his words: “the Nigerian population is not stretching the resources because we have more than enough resources to cater for the well-being and by extension, the development of the country”.

“A country that has over 15 commercially viable resources scattered across the States can not be poor. The issue is the kind of corruption that is being carried out in the country which is making it difficult to invest in the citizens".

“We cannot as a country use population increase as a reason for the abject poverty that is bedeviling our great nation as the number of thieves in public offices are much more than the population and are wrecking our economy”.

“Corruption has made it almost impossible for us to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), which is the goals put in place by the United Nations to provide adequately for the well-being of every citizen”.

According to the Ondo-born politician, the Nigerian Constitution has already provided a roadmap for our development, as Chapter 2 of the Constitution states that every Nigerian must have access to quality education, healthcare, housing, and proper economic participation.

“If we curb the leakages in government that are caused by corruption, it will be easy to train manpower through skills acquisition which will help improve our Gross Domestic Product per Capita” Prince Adebayo said.

According to the legal luminary, who described the average Nigerian as a "profit center," free education, quality medical healthcare facilities, and adequate skill training will not only help us as a country, but will also see us export these talents to other countries as expatriates and improve our diaspora remittances.
