We are now in a situation in our nation Nigeria , that the price of
every single is rising up , which is affecting the majority (The
average and poor ) of the masses in the country . Every single
person in this nation is feeling the impact of the new
administration CHANGE , that majority of the masses voted for.
My write up is not to criticize the past or present administration
which most people do , but to list out the major PROBLEMS and
SOLUTIONS that can be of help to the present administration and
to the masses of the Nation .
I will first by, state the Major Problems faced in the nation and
followed by the Solutions that can be applied to solve the
problems facing our nation , which are as stated ;
As we all know the economy of our nation is bad at the present
moment , which we all pray for it to get better and we are the
only ones that can make it better by cooperating together , but
have we ever considered knowing the reasons that our economy
is bad? Many of us will say it ’ s due to Corruption ,
which i agree with it and also disagree with it a little ; you may
want to ask why? It ’ s because we haven ’ t really checked the
sources of the things that are leading to the crumbling down of
our economy and we need to tackle them from their sources ,
which are as follows ;
I) VANDALIZATION OF OIL PIPE LINES : We can ’ t Judge what is
happening in this region of our nation if we listen to one side of
the coin without listening to the other side of the coin and that is
what most people do . The bombing of the oil pipe lines is one of
the things affecting the economy of Nigeria because Nigeria
depend mostly on a SINGLE STREAM OF INCOME and if the
bombing of oil pipe lines continues to happens , it will keep
affecting our economy as oil is our major source of income ,
which is also used for different things in the country .
citizens of Nigeria are mostly fond of complaining and blaming the
Government of almost every single negative thing that happens in
their lives , which just shows signs of lack of thinking of that
individual and not rising up against the challenges of his /her life
instead of blaming the government always and people around
you for what is happening to you . The following are the solutions
of which I think can be used to tackle the problems of the Nation .
I will start by making statement ”We can’t
solve an issue by killing one another, because
it only leaves the issue unsolved and our
coming generation will inherit the issue and
keep killing one another” The vandalization of
oil pipe lines won’t resolve the issue neither
the deployment of soldiers there will solve the
issue; instead the government should know
the main reasons while this group of people
are doing what they are doing. I heard the
reason for vandalizing these oil pipe lines was
because the people in that region where
suffering from many things. Amnesty
programme won’t solve the issue, instead the
government should
teach these people how to catch fish not how
to eat fish by providing them with basic social
amenities that these people need, such as;
Standard Education, Good Roads,
Empowerment Training etc. because there are
people there with great ideas and potentials,
who need education (knowledge) to develop
these ideas into reality and peace will reign in
that region and our economy will become
strong again, since the nation depends majorly
on Oil as its source of income
man doesn’t have one single stream of
income he/she has up to or more than 7
streams of income. We can check the lives of
the rich people in our nation, they have
numerous sources of income and that’s what
the Government needs to start doing, instead
of depending on one stream of income. Our
government need to start thing big and wide
like the way rich men do their businesses. We
have natural resources all over
the country in abundance and great citizens
with great ideas that the government and
capable people can invest in these people
with great ideas the resources we have, which
will begin to develop Jobs for the people of

the nation and also boast the economy.
