Gov. Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State on Tuesday said that the Nigeria of his dream had not been actualised but he believed it was still possible to achieve in future.
Fashola spoke at the All Progressives Congress (APC) Youth Summit held at the Muson Centre, Lagos.
He said that he looked forward to a new Nigeria in which people could live their lives to the fullest.
The governor said that in building a new Nigeria, the people were the most important and human resources needed to be equipped with skills to ensure survival.
Fashola said that a new Nigeria should put minimum life expectancy at 70 years and should be one that has reliable electricity.
He gave an account of a printing company which prints in Dubai because the cost of printing there is about 3 per cent but if done in Nigeria will amount to 38 per cent.
According to him, the disparity is because of the money used in fueling generators.
The governor said that reliable electricity facilitates economic development, which in turn, would create more employment opportunities in the country.
