An Osun based cleric, Bishop Seun Adeoye has stated that the present crops of Nigerian politicians cannot solve the nation’s myriads of problems, but noted that what the country needs now are new class of men and women with fresh ideas.
The leader of Sufficient Grace and Truth Ministry (SGTM), Rehoboth Arena, Okinni, Osun State in a statement issued in Osogbo on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 chided the current politicians in the country and accused them of ruining the nation and putting its future in jeopardy.
He said, “Majority of these politicians are corrupt, greedy, myopic and incompetent. They lack the ability to turn this nation around. They seek power for their personal aggrandizement and not in the interest of all Nigerians. They are parasites who have eaten so deep into the nation’s wealth.
“These present politicians are nauseating odours that need to be thrown away completely. They are all collaborators with no exemption in the looting of this country. They are mere exhibitionists who deceive gullible Nigerians with fake achievements.
“To safe the ship of this country from wreckage and disintegration, I ask Nigerians to come together to sack these politicians. Yes, let us kick them out. I encourage young, vibrant and genuine patriots to come on board and take over Nigeria. We need fresh air in our political life”, he stated.
He regretted that the so-called human right activists and well-known crusaders of good governance have compromised. “The one-time labour unions in my country have become “neighbour unions” to government in power”.
On the current campaign for President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term, Bishop Adeoye advised him to shelve the idea and use the remaining days in his first term in office by focusing on his campaign promises.
“Few months ago, I called on President Muhammadu Buhari not to seek re-election. I still stand on this. Even though, many of his aides and party men are all out in a renew vigour about his re-election bid, Buhari should ignore them.
“If Buhari loves Nigeria and he is not greed of power, he should at the age of 75 quietly retire and return home to rest? Nigeria is not a personal estate of any individual. A good statesman who truly loves his country won’t allow himself to be pushed around by egoistic individuals”, he stated.
The activist cleric explained further, “President Buhari can learn from the late South African president, Mr. Nelson Mandela who gloriously and willingly left office after his first term in office. He can also take a lesson from Mr. Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe who was recently disgraced out of office. He can choose what he wants”.
“But I sincerely advise him to return to Daura at the end of his tenure in 2019. Has he succeeded in his agenda for Nigerians? He will be judged by posterity”, he added.
