SDP’s Adebayo blast Nigerian leaders, says lack of patrotism our greatest problem
Presidential Aspirant of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Prince Adewole Adebayo accused the leadership of the country of being unpatriotic and controlled by greed .
This he said in a discussion with newsmen about the ongoing industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU) which has seen Government-owned tertiary institutions closed down for over 3 months now.
He said ‘ those in Government know the right thing to do but are not interested in doing it. People in public office lack any iota of patriotism as they are controlled by greed and pillage the funds in Tertiary Education Trust Fund.
‘If an audit on the TET funds were to be carried out, you will be dazed by how much has been spent despite ASUU being on strike and the actions of the people in power is killing the education system’… Prince Adebayo said
‘One of the reasons why the strike will continue is that Public office holders have children studying abroad hence are insulated from the lingering ASUU strike’… Prince Adebayo
‘While in the University, it was normal to see children of public officers In the same school with us but it is s not the same today.’
The youths have a wonderful opportunity to remove these greedy people from office. It can be done through the polls and I hope the average Nigerian Youth will exercise their franchise by voting out everyone who does not have interest of the country at heart .
