What is politics to an average Nigerian politician like you?
“The struggle to gain power; to administer people and also to make an impact, to make a name and to make money. In Nigeria, politics is where for any position people have to vie, to canvass and have to put themselves up for leadership. For me, politics is a desire to get into the position of leadership or authority with the singular purpose of making an impact on people, which reposed their trust on you. My take is that our society requires people of vision, people that have a mission, people that have some level of intellect, people that have a sense of knowledge and wisdom on how to administer resources and how to impact an individual’s life.”
