21 Feb TOP MOST IMPORTANT THINGS NIGERIANS WANT FROM THEIR PRESIDENT
Market Trends International (MTI), conducted a study across the six geo-political regions covering urban and rural areas. A total of 10,000 interviews were conducted. The sample distribution was proportionate to the population of each State and respondents were randomly selected.
Provision of full security cover for all Nigerians (31%) and creation of job opportunities for youths (21%) topped the list of the most important things Nigerians want from their President. Over the last decade, insecurity has been ravaging all the nocks and crannies of Nigeria. This takes different diverse – insurgency, kidnapping, armed robbery, cultism, Fulani’s herdsmen attack on farmers, ritual killing and activities of militant groups.
Notably, unemployment rate is on the increase as more youths graduate from schools every year to add to the millions of youths that are seeking for gainful employment. This has direct correlation with the high insecurity in the country because ‘an idle mind is the devil workshop’.
Other key issues unveiled from the study were: provision of 24/7 electricity (16%), wipe out corruption (14%), sound economy (11%) and build well equipped health facilities (7%).
Findings from the study also revealed that over half of adult population (62%) have permanent voter card (PVC). There could be some people that have registered, but are yet to collect theirs.
