2023: Industrialist urges Nigerians to shun idiots, tribesmen, elect citizen


By Okechukwu Onuegbu

The Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of Hardis and Dromedas Ltd., Dr Chike Obidigbo, Tuesday, urged Nigerians to reject 'idiots and tribesmen' contesting the 2023 general elections to elect 'citizens' for good governance to reign.

Obidigbo, a former zonal Chairman of Manufacturing Association of Nigeria (MAN), gave the charge in a keynote address at federal Polytechnic Oko, Anambra State during the institution's 1st School of Business Studies International conference tagged reinventing governance and management for sustainable development.

The frontline governorship candidate of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in 2013, who was represented by Professor Chika Moore, a federal commissioner for National Population Commission (NPC), disclosed that "if the idiot gets into a political position, he uses the office for self aggrandisement and loots funds to amass personal wealth."

"If the tribesmen gets into power, he elevates nepotism and mediocrity to an ethos; only his tribesmen will be given lucrative and powerful appointments. He loots and allows their tribesmen to loot the public treasury. However, when a citizen gets into political office, he enthroned meritocracy, promotes the rule of law and uses his office to work for the good of the society."

Also speaking, the Chairman/Chief Executive Officer, Wichtech Group, Dr Chidozie Nwankwo, who was a lead paper presenter, charged federal and state governments to limit the numbers of their advisers and assistants, as well as reduce the size of their cabinets through amendments of the constitution.

On his part, the Chairman of the occasion, Comrade Chibuzor Asomugha, contended that Nigerians need good leader that could transform the country from consumption to production, and that according to him, was achievable by voting without considering ethnicity or inducements.

Earlier, the Rector, Federal Polytechnic Oko, Dr Francisca Nwafulugo, represented by the Deputy Rector (Administration), Dr Kenneth Ezekwe, noted that the conference was a wakeup call and would create room for international discourse.
