On Thursday, the chairman of Transcorp Nigeria Plc used his verified Twitter handle to express his feelings about the hardships that Nigerians are facing.

In a lengthy Twitter post, Tony Elumelu examines the plight of Nigerians living in poverty and how the issue is only growing worse.

Elumelu questioned why the government collect taxes from the people but is unable to provide a long-term solution to the insecurity and inflation that plague the country.

However, he urged Nigerians to speak up about 2023, saying that the good people of Nigeria cannot be silent while wickedness reigns.

He stressed that Nigerians must demand and push for leaders who will be able to deliver in 2023.

His tweet reads;

This morning, I am listening to my colleagues at the office bemoan the very pressing issues that they face everyday in this country, and how things have been getting worse and worse – no electricity for 5 days, hikes in the price of diesel, frightening food inflation, etc.
How can a country so rich in natural resources have 90% of its citizens living in hardship and poverty? I have often said that access to electricity is critical for our development, alleviation of poverty and hardship. And speaking of security, our people are afraid!

Businesses are suffering. How can we be losing over 95% of oil production to thieves?
Look at the Bonny Terminal that should be receiving over 200k barrels of crude oil daily, instead it receives less than 3,000 barrels, leading the operator @Shell to declare force majeure.
Why are we paying taxes if our security agencies can’t stop this? It is clear that the reason Nigeria is unable to meet its OPEC production quota is not because of low investment but because of theft, pure and simple!

Meanwhile, oil producing countries are smiling as their foreign reserves rising. What is Nigeria’s problem? We need to hold our leaders more accountable!
Elections are coming – security and resources need to be everyone’s agenda – let’s be vocal for our nation’s priority.
Evil prevails when good people are silent. We need to be vocal about 2023. Let’s focus on Nigeria. Demand and advocate for leaders that deliver.
In 2023, Nigeria must be on a strong trajectory for progress and development.
Evil prevails when good people are silent. We need to be vocal about 2023. Let’s focus on Nigeria. Demand and advocate for leaders that deliver.
In 2023, Nigeria must be on a strong trajectory for progress and development.”
