Former presidential aspirant, Patrick Utom has described President Buhari, Tinubu, Atiku and other politicians across other party lines as a mistake.
Utom who made this known in a statement said that Nigeria is traveling in the wrong direction, adding that the anti-intellectual disposition has put the country in a state of permanent crisis.
“The calibre of people who became politicians in Nigeria is a terrible mistake for our country. People have travelled from citizenship to idiocy”, the economics professor said.
The state reads in part, “Nigeria is travelling in the wrong direction. This is really the problem. The gap between us and them is pushed in this emotional pulse.
“We seem to stumble from crisis to crisis. In Nigeria, everything you say that seems to be structured, people dismiss it. They say, ‘Na grammar we go chop?’
“They forgot that every action starts from a theory. But this anti-intellectual disposition, not thinking, make us create mountains in a small manhole and put our country in a state of permanent crisis.
“We seem unable to have a rational conversation. Nigeria politics irritates, annoys me because it is not dealing with issues people are dealing with.”
Recall that the Delta state Governor, Sen. (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa, on Wednesday said he dissolved the state’s Executive Council to check distraction in governance. The governor gave the explanation in Asaba at his quarterly media interaction with journalists in Delta.
He admitted that many of the commissioners worked very hard in helping him to achieve the successes his administration had recorded in the last six years, but stated that the cabinet started getting divided, a development that began to brew distraction in governance in the state.
He commended all the former members of the executive council for their contributions and disclosed that God would guide him in the reconstitution of the cabinet.
The governor said, “At some point in time in the course of an administration, there are always reasons to take some actions. If I tell you that there is no reason for the dissolution, then I would have fooled myself; then why did I have to dissolve the Exco?
In another report, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has cautioned that deltans will determine who succeeds Okowa”. This was contained in a statement issued by the Publicity Secretary of the APC in Delta State, Mr. Sylvester Imonina.
