- The Aareonakakanfo of Yorubaland has said Nigerians politicians are the reasons for the country's mess
- According to Gani Adams, the nation's politicians are hypocrites and do not have genuine love for the nation
- The Yoruba leader said the attitude of Nigerian politicians present a perfect picture of what a democracy should never be
Iba Gani Adams, the Aareonakakanfo of Yorubaland and also the leader of the Odua Peoples Congress (OPC), has blamed Nigerian politicians for the country’s problems.
Adams condemned the hypocrisy of Nigerians politicians and their lack of love for the country, while expressing disappointment in the way they paraded themselves during the 2019 general elections, The Independent reports.
He said this on Tuesday, March 26, at the 2019 edition of Eledumare Festival, while adding that when democracy started in 1999, people believed in it and took the risk because many were tired of military rule.
He said: "The long years of the military was our poor past and all that we wanted then was democracy. But sadly, our democracy today is gradually becoming a different thing entirely. Politicians have become our nemesis."
Adams also added that the country’s institutions are all weak and there is no care for the masses in any way.
He said: “Nothing exemplifies the utter chaos, the seemingly irreversible entropy that has percolated the very being of the entity called Nigeria over the years than the attitudes of our politicians.
“Our politicians lose focus so easily and they turn Nigeria into a directionless country. If you want to know why Nigeria has never worked, why Nigeria is a higgledy-piggledy scrapyard of unadulterated confusion, just take a look at the attitudes of our politicians, especially, before, during and after the just-concluded general elections.
“Their attitudes present a perfect picture of what a democracy should never be. They illustrate the absolute befuddlement that Nigeria has descended into. It is sad that after 20 years of an uninterrupted democracy, our political class is yet to learn its lessons that the voice of the people is the voice of God.”

In a statement signed by Kehinde Aderemi, the special assistant on media to the Yoruba leader, he said that the use of military in elections is not logical and only a means to undermine the country’s democracy.
