We Should Amend Our Constitution to Mandate Us to Save At Least 10% of Every Revenue – Peter Obi | WATCH on BN



The former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi speaking at a leadership, entrepreneurship, and -national development event – The Platform – made startling revelations about governance in Nigeria.

In this interview with CNBC, Obi proffers solutions to the country’s economic challenges.

Obi called for a well articulated policy that citizens can be confident in. He said economy is driven by hope, and once people can see hope in the economic policies, they will have faith and confidence

He also said that the carriers of the message of growing the economy must also be trustworthy people.

He said that there is no perfect economy, but economies with vision that is being driven by committed people.

While speaking on his time as governor of Anambra state and lessons states need to learn, Obi lamented the fact that there is no plan for economic development in most states, adding that that already means a plan to fail.

Continuing his speech on the cutting cost of governance in Nigeria, Obi said that to get the country out of recession, Nigeria must ask how we got to where we are now.

He called for constitutional amendment that will mandate the country to save – for a start – 10% of its revenue.

    I second that. And put it in an air tight framework where the bloody leaders can’t access it.

    Lack of proactive and responsible leadership is the bane of our nation…
    exactly why i love my Norway….by far the richest and safest country in the world.They too have oil but never depended on it…Today they have saved so much that in 500yrs,except a disaster happens,they will never go broke or have recession.The future of their children yet unborn have been secured… That’s forward thinking leadership.
    In Nigeria we have highly corrupt and obesed fools who call themselves leaders…. consumption rather than production is all they know…Sad reality…

      I swear Norway’s wisdom when it comes to their oil and gas management is ridiculous

      Norway is the only way! I heard them contemplating on how to spend their sovereign wealth fund ($882 billion), I was just shaking my head shouting chai (that is $170,000 per person)! Apparently they own 2% of all company shares in Europe and 1% of the whole world. Talk about legacy fa!

      I Agree to disagree. Norway is among the richest but not the richest country in the world. Too much praise you are giving to a country who were lucky enough to find gold. Instead of praising a country you know little about, how about you seek to be the change Nigeria seeks. It’s okay to complain, but for how long?

    Obi’s lifestyle even speaks more louder than his words. Always simple, humble and intellectually curious. He is an integrated personality.
