Nigerian Citizens Share the Blame in Bad Governance of their Country — Shekarau
Nigerian citizens who elect politicians to leadership positions are partly responsible for the bad governance the country has been experiencing for long.
Former Kano State governor, Ibrahim Shekarau, revealed this during an interactive session with journalists in Kano recently.
Shekarau, a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, challenged his countrymen to have a change of attitude while selecting people who will lead them.
He said it is logical to conclude that if the leaders elected to steer the affairs of the nation turn out to be bad, it would be because the people made bad choices.
He advised that the quality of people aspiring to leadership position is more germane to good choice than considerations of where they come from, adding that political consciousness is paramount at all timeso.
The two-term governor also challenged Nigerian journalists to play a decisive role in the way leaders emerge in the country, arguing that if journalists cannot influence right choices of leaders, there is no hope that thing would change for the better anytime soon.
