‘Consumption not production is what Nigeria needs’ – Adamu Garba

 A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adamu
Garba, on Monday claimed that what Nigeria needs is consumption and not
production.

 

According to him, “whoever is talking about consumption to
production doesn’t understand the dynamics required for a country to be
productive”.

 

Recall that Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the
Labour Party, LP, in the last general election, has been insisting on the need
to move Nigeria from consumption to production.

 

However, Garba disagreed, saying that the country must
create value in its consumption, adding that people must spend money.

 

He said: “Nigerian demography is green and supposed to be an
asset, but it is gradually turning into a liability.

 

“Young people’s propensity to save money as opposed to
spending is higher. Young people have to spend what they earn for value to be
created.

 

“The truth is, Nigerian value is in its consumption, not
production. Whoever is talking about consumption to production doesn’t
understand the dynamics required for a country to be productive. Our HDI (Human
Development Index) is pretty low, and you need about two decades to build a
strong HDI. We don’t have that luxury of time now.

 

“We must create value in our consumption. Guys must spend
that money.

 

“Another issue is that our younger demography doesn’t want
to enroll in military service. This is not good. We need a large military, up
to a million-fighting force, between now and 2030 to build a force that is
capable of fighting and winning. This is needed to protect our supply lines and
guarantee the flow of food and energy we need.

 

“Nigeria must grow to be an effective military power to
continue to protect the interests of the hundreds of millions of Nigerians who
will need the food and energy we need to be stable and grow as a nation.

Young Nigerians need to join the military in droves. This is
critical for the future of Nigeria.”
