Nigeria will be great – Al Mustapha

By Abdul Hassan

Retired Major Hamza Al Mustapha has expressed optimism that Nigeria will be a great nation, despite the current challenges.

Al Mustapha, who was the chief of security (CSO) of the late military head of state, General Sani Abacha, said this when he spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Abuja.

“We are wrong to limit the current challenges Nigeria faces to the issue of trying to stop the 2023 poll, because it is far more important than that.

“You should sit down and look at what makes Nigeria, the potential of Nigeria in the eyes of the world, you should look at the leadership positions of Nigeria in Africa and the world at large.

“You should also look at the negligence of management at all levels. There is also the issue of poor strategic planning to position the country as a leader in Africa and in the world.

“And then you should look at the foreign forces that have been there to make sure Nigeria is held up because of its many potentials in terms of human and material resources,” he said.

Al Mustapha alleged that certain foreign powers were responsible for Nigeria’s many problems.

“We are facing a deliberate delay which began in 1972, after some powerful countries decided to halt our development towards an industrial economy.

“These foreign powers realized that Nigeria was blessed with a large volume of oil and gas, they sat down, assessed Nigeria and found that with its abundant natural and human resources, it was going to ensure leadership in the world.

“It was then agreed that any external mechanism using internal collaborators should be applied to delay the development of Nigeria.

“They started with the electricity sector, ensuring that our industries are killed due to the lack of adequate power supply,” he said.

Al Mustapha said the plan negatively affected all sectors of the economy as well as all spheres of life.

“Until now, electricity supply in Nigeria is still very, very expensive compared to other countries, despite the fact that we have everything we need to have one of the most stable and stable power supplies. the cheapest in the world.

“We have the resources in abundance, we have coal and gas, we have solar energy in abundance because we are near the equator, we have no excuse for a power outage in Nigeria.

“Many countries far from the equator use solar energy, but we are suffering in the dark.

“We have abundant hydroelectric and gas resources and yet the production and transmission of electricity in Nigeria is one of the most expensive in the world,” he said.

Al Mustapha said leaders at all levels must strive to rectify the situation.

“Our leaders, especially at the grassroots, should strive to take care of the poor, so that the last man in the village feels the impact of the government.

“When people are neglected, what you have is revolt and that is nature.

“Take the example of the energy sector alone, if our leaders can effectively tackle the problem as soon as possible, Nigeria will take shape in an instant.

“If we are able to solve the electricity problem on our own, you know where we will be, because the problem is why we are where we are now,” he said.

Al Mustapha also advised Nigerians collaborating with foreign forces to stunt the country’s growth to stop.

“Many Nigerians are helping foreign collaborators to destroy the country and most of these people have dual citizenship, immunity and great respect in these countries,” he said. (NAA)
