Can someone please explain to me why we should not meet these targets?
(1) Steel – 10m tonnes
(2) Cocoa – 1.5m tonnes
(3) Natural gas – 100m cubic metres
(4) Rice – 10m tonnes
(5) Distributed electricity – 20,000MW
(6) Tarred roads – 200,000km
(7) Assembled automobiles – 500,000 units
(8) Bitumen – 10m tonnes
(9) Palm oil – 20m tonnes
(10) Clean energy – 5,000MW
Any minister who fails to meet his targets should be removed from office and face a statutory charge of economic sabotage, which should attract a minimum one year jail sentence. If we want Nigeria to advance, we must be prepared to force the pace of development.
