“Insha Allah, by the time I am done with my second term, I must have retired 90% of these old politicians. They are the problem with Nigeria… How can someone devote his entire life to politics as his occupation. Take politics out of their lives, they are frustrated. To them politics is a business venture; a quick way of making money.
Imagine, some people go as far as borrowing monies in form of loans to invest in politics. This is where we got it wrong. Politics is not a career nor occupation, but a vocation. Elsewhere, those who venture into politics are people who have accomplished in their respective fields of endeavour, not a university graduate who is yet to find his feet. They go into politics to serve the people and return to their primary occupation. They don’t go there to enrich themselves. This misconception, we must change.”
